I have no idea if this is the same fault but sounds so much like My volvo problem maybe worth a try ..
The 850 has a large bore not unlike your vehicle and the oil used was not up to the job because when left overnight the oil drained off the pots and the result was no compression so it wouldnt start .
I was told to squirt a little oil into the cylinders and try again , it took a little time for the oil to get round the cylinder but sure enough without any problem she started .. So I changed the grade of Motor Oil I was using to a better Synthetic brand cost me an arm and a leg lol but since then not a one problem . now I am not saying that this will cure your problem but it just might , and an oil change never did any vehicle any harm ...

I had a starting issue with my 93 t100 3.0 v6 last week. Changed the fuel pump and then it started first crank every time. Ran great for a week and then yesterday it died on the freeway and would not start...


Have you had the catalytic converter changed ever? Have you the owner manual? Are there any new lights in the dashboard? Some vehicle are computer programmed to stall after a certain number of miles to prevent further damage. That is what it sounds like is happening to you.

your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.
