Volvo 2.3 Turbo 1997 stalls when the engine is hot
I have a Volvo 940 Celebration 2.3 turbo which starts fine when cold but if the engine needs to be restarted when hot it is very reluctant to keeping running unless the throttle is pressed down. Apart from this it is great!
Any ideas please?

It looks easy for the 940 but I am not sure about the 940 turbo, as maybe some of the turbo parts are in the way. I'm not sure about that, since there is no documentation on the turbo model vs. the 940 standard model.
If you can follow the following instructions, then I would give it a whirl.
Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
Disconnect the leads from the starter motor.
Remove the starter motor retaining bolts.
Remove the starter motor from the vehicle.
Position the starter motor to the flywheel housing.
Apply locking compound to the bolt threads and install the retaining bolts finger-tight.
Tighten the bolts to approximately 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
Connect the starter motor leads and the negative battery cable.
