Question about 1984 Volvo DL
The mass air flow can cause these symptoms
Posted on Dec 27, 2008
Perhaps the Carburettor just needs a clean of all the soot and old oil build up. Go to a motor factors or ebay and get some Carb cleaner.
Find Two pieces of old rags.
And an old chisel or wide screwdriver.
With the car engine OFF.
Undo the air pipe attached to the side of the Carb. Get a small piece of rag and open the vent fin carefully . Put a piece of rag just to top anything going down into the inside of the Carb.
Spray some carb cleaner around the inside circle and clean the excess build up of oil . Remove the rag and rap a bit of it around the head of the chisel or screwdriver.
Open the fin carefully again ...
Spray some carb cleaner in one side and whilst holding the fin open with your finger start wiping the inside with the rag on the chisel . Wipe as much of the excess oil build up as you can safely do until the inside if the carb is clear as possible.
Give it another spray with the carb cleaner .
Start your engine up and give it a bit of throttle.
Knock the engine off again and replace the Air pipe securely.
Every few fill ups of fuel put in some Petrol Cleaner .
This did my wife's S40 really good.
