SOURCE: 1985 Volvo DL station wagon Starter problem

This happened to me on my '87 245.
It was a cracked distributor cap. Just a hairline, but enough.
Also check all the electrical plugs and connections under the hood.
If there is any corrosion or anything amiss clean and or replace as necessary.
Also check for wire insulation deterioration. This is a problem on some '84 to '88 240s.

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.

Motor starts then dies several times when cold


Sounds like the cold start solenoid. It is designed to keep the engine running at a set RPM until it reaches a specific engine temp.

Check the engine temperature sensor. There should be two of them, one that reports it inside of the car and one that reports it to the ECU. The one that reports it to the ECU has likely failed and needs to be replaced.

My volvo 960 1997 wagon at times won't start. when I try to start it, it's like the battery is completely dead, but the battery is fine. what is making it do this ?


Depends on your definition of completely dead.
Do the lights work, but no crank ?
Can you jump start the car ?
A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery, the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch, along with the ground connections to the engine.

1993 Volvo Station Wagon, Engine Shuts Off intermittently and Turns back on after less than a minute


The engine shutting down is probably a bad VSS(vehical speed sensor). The electrical problems are most likely due to loose wires and bad grounds. Clean and tighten all conections starting with the battery cables and the ground wires under the hood and under the dash. You have to find a mechanic who specializes in Volvos or you'll lose your shirt in trouble shooting and repairs.
