1992 GL Volvo 940 stall problem

This car stalls for no apparent reason. It could run great for a while then stall after driving for approximately 8 miles or so. Then it will stall one or two times after that. It usually starts back up, but sometimes it takes several minutes. Help!!!

    The car intermittently will stop, the rpm fall, and all of the engine lights on the dashboard come on. I had this problem before and had the fuel pump and the idle control valve replaced. I experienced no problems with it dying for a while (perhaps a few months) and now it is doing it again. I feel as thought it is a fuel related problem. Even after replacing the fuel pump and idle control valve, I would still experience greatly fluctuating idling rpm rates. Additionally, the car seems to sputter constantly as opposed to sound smooth.

Car stalls while driving...starts right up afterwords why ?

I could help if you could provide some more detail:
What does the car do just before it stalls?
Does it misfire before cutting out?
Does it simply die right away?
Does it do this when the gas is below a half a tank?

Stalls for no reason occasionally starts again after a while

This is a fuel system related problem.

Try starting the car and listen to the fuel pump from beneath the backseat to know if it works. If that does not work then it means the solution to the problem is to replace the fuel pump.

Good luck.

1992 Volvo 940 Gl Sunroof Problem

to find out if it is off its track you can remove the cover between the rearview and the sunroof that is the motor/drive assembly. there is a slotted pin in this assemply that you turn with a screwdriver to move the sunroof manually if it wont move manually then you have a bigger issue. sometimes thie drive assembly screws get loose, i believe there are two screws that hold it up,when those are loose you will get a grinding sound when the gears skip. good luck.
