Question about 1994 Volvo 960

1 Answer

Stalling I have 1994 volvo 960 (sedan). I had replaced fuel filter, fuel pump, computer system, batere, water pump, swicth starter, break, mufler. I do tune up regularly. But the car just keep stalling. Never know when and where. One day I drove in the morning till afternoon, it was fine. But at night it stalled in the traffic. Another day it stalled in the morning before I go to work. The other day, it stalled 4 times in a row just to have a ride for 2 hours. The mechanics didn't know what was wrong, but keep telling me to replace this and that. I'm so tired replacing parts for this car. Every month I must take the car to get repaired and replaced. It's a great car, but cost me lots and lots of money, time and energy. Please help me to solve this. It's like a ghost problem. No one knows what's wrong, when or where it will stall. Thanks. Nina

Volvo 960 wagon stall


if it is lacking power and stalls at stops, it may be a bad fuel filter. when car is off, the dirt inside the filter drops to the bottom. but as soon as its started it rises up. that is what usually causes a car to stall. when stopped. if the car bogs down on hills and it was fine before, then its the fuel filter. there are many things to make a car stall at stops, but check the fuel filter first then go from there if problem still exists. and check all vacuum lines in engine compartment. there may be a leak. clean throttle body out if needed. good-day! check and or replace the Idle air control. (IAC) it may be sticking.

Sounds like the fuel filter is dirty... When have you replaced it last? Possible that the pump is bad but I would start with the filter.

The motor shakes in my 960 volvo sedan why could that be


A shaking engine usually is an indicator of an engine missfire. Secondary ignition components are the most common failure (Spark plugs, plug wires, etc..). Less likely, but still a consideration are the fuel system components such as the fuel injectors or filter. Further down the list with a vibration in gear at idle are bad engine mounts. If it worsens with engine load such as acceleration then it is likely the ignition system.
Good luck

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.

1994 Volvo 960 engine cuts off at high speeds


It sounds like a fuel problem as opposed to an electrical fault. Start with the easiest fixes first ..
The next time the car comes to a grinding halt quickly remove the petrol filler cap and listen for air rushing into the tank. If you can hear air rushing into the tank that means a vacuum has been created inside it.

There are 2 causes of a vacuum inside the petrol tank. One is that the air-valve in the filler cap is blocked (there's usually holes in the filler cap covered by a rubber type ring) and the other is that the breather tube from the tank to atmosphere becomes blocked with dirt and debris thrown up by the roadwheels. Try driving the car with the fuel cap removed or very loose so that air can easily enter the tank. If the car still comes to a halt with the same symptoms, then there isn't a vacuum being caused within the tank.

A failing fuel pump can cause the same problems. I once owned a VW that had the symptoms you describe. The in-tank fuel pump was 'on its last legs' and when replaced the car was perfect.

A blocked fuel filter can also cause the same problems.

Here in the UK the Volvo 960 is either a straight-six 2.5 litre or 3 litre engine. I would guess that Volvos in North America share a pretty much the same mechanical layout depsite model differences. A UK 960 has two fuel pumps. One is located within the fuel tank and is accessed via an inspection plate behind the rear passenger seats (estate/station wagon models). The other fuel pump sits in a bracket underneath the car alongside the fuel filter, just aft of the front passenger seat (driver seat in the US..).

The in-tank fuel pump does most of the work, lifting the fuel out of the tank. The under-car pump lifts the fuel to the engine (it shares the same fuel line). Start with the easiest fixes first - is there a vaccuum in the tank that 'slows'/'holds back' the fuel? Then look at the fuel filter which is supposed to be changed every 40,000 miles.

If it's of any use to you, I've put some photos of the fuel pumps and fuel filter on my own website - www.glennsmart.btinternet.co.uk Just choose 'Volvo 960' from the drop-down menu.
