Question about 1998 Volvo S70
Car stalls VERY intermittently...can go weeks without a problem- then stalls without warning. Sometimes starts right up afterward, lately, it's harder to restart- but then runs fine. Seems to happen only after a longish drive- 30 min or more- but not EVERY longish drive- only has done it when sitting stopped- ex, end of exit ramp, stopped for light, stopped to make turn at intersection. No codes- dealer has no idea what else to do - started to happen shortly after ABS system replaced end of 2007-probably just coincidence, but I HATE coincidences in CARS! -not sure what else to tell you- have tried gas treatment, dealer replaced oxygen sensor, and a few other items ($2000 in repairs in last 18 months!)-no effect
Have tried getting quality gasoline at a reliable station? It sounds like water in your fuel system. Add a couple bottles of Iso-Heet fuel system dryer everytime you fill up the next few times, and that should cure it.
