My volvo has stalling problems - 1986 Volvo 740

    My 1994 850 stalls when the car is running or at idle. After stalling it takes several startups before it is ok again. My gas tank is 3.4 full, the engine is hot after being the highway for about 20 minutes. I had this problem a year ago. I had a part replaced and it didn't help. It idled very rough after the new part was installed. The mechanc then found out it was leaky fuel hose. The car ran well until recently. I am having the same problem again.

A number of causes could be in play. Dirty / lose fuses, defective fuel pump, clogged fuel filter, bad ignition switch. Can you provide more info? Happens when cold? Partially full gas tank? Have you checked trouble codes? Very simple and informative.

1999 Volvo S70 Stalls at stop signs and traffic lights

These models had a problem with the electronic control modules, and this is what controls the idle speed. Sometimes they just need to be cleaned, but sometimes they are defective. Volvo has extended the warranty on some of them to 10 years or 200,000 miles if it is found to be defective.

My Volvo 960 stalls while driving

You should start by checking the diagnostic trouble codes. Here are some directions!

These are fairly reliable, with few stalling issues, but they used to have problems with the coolant temperature sensors, and the intake manifold gasket leaks, both of which could cause your problem.

After you read the codes, or have it done for you, post the codes and I can direct you further.
