Question about 1993 Volvo 240
1993 volvo 240 wagon with 235K miles, automatic, running great UNTIL:
Car sits overnite in damp/rain/misty weather, starting it is a horror, cranks forever then finally chugs,coughs,spits, and catches, then runs just as fine as always...shut it off and it starts right up again, just fine...
Only happens in damp/wet weather
Only after sitting overnite.
Once started, it runs fine, no further issues til next damp morning...
Any help greatly appreciated
Perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.
