Question about 1990 Volvo 240
When starting the car, it tries to stall when pressing the gas. it sputters while it's running and sometimes cuts off. while driving, i can floor it and it just creeps and won't go past 50 mph. I was told to change the oxygen sensor, or cut off the catalina converter. I truly don't know what to do with my 1990 volvo 240 dl. Plese help
I had similar issues and had the fuel pumps replaced until I found out it was a timing belt skipping .. this fixed it

It sounds like a dirty fuel filter or bad spark plug wires.

The mass air flow can cause these symptoms.
