Sounds like your vacuum assist brakes diaghram has sprung a leak. Pull the hose to the assist and plug it with a bolt or something. Then try it.

VOLVO S80 2000,MY CAR DRIVE'S FINE BUT CUTS OUT AT ROAD JUNCTION'S AND TRAFFIC LIGHTS, CAN ANYONE HELP, THANKS.PS the car has a manual gearbox.


This is just a TOTAL STAB... in the bewilderness...
because you really gave very little INFORMATION...

Hello Jill Dunkley...

If and ONLY if...
your car has an AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION...

THERE IS A CONDITION where the Fi (fuel injection)
will develop a problem with the COLD-START circuit
(mimics a choke on new cars)... will cause the
IDLE to climb... and heavy shift when put into drive.

Won't pose much of a problem while the vehicle is cold...
but as the vehicle WARMs up...

The RPMs are high enough to reach the "LOCK-UP"
speed of the torque-converter.

With your foot on the brake it will cause the car to stall
as sure as a MISHANDLED CLUTCH under the foot of
rookie driver...

SOLUTION:
Get the vehicle diagnosed...
Fix the COLD START issue to REDUCE THE IDLE SPEED.

Drive safely.

Volvo 240 stalls unless giving it gas


Check the rpm in neutral should be around 800-850, this should drop to 500-550 in drive or reverse.

Will not go in reverse and when in drive the brakes lockup one tire at a time this onlt started after i put a new battery in. would replaceing my battery cause this to happen


The only way I could think this would happen is if you reversed the post on the battery and started the car. You could have fried some electrical wires.

My 95 VOlvo 850 Tubo keeps stalling on me!


It's the solinoid. It's placed alongside the distributor. A coil about 1" around, and 2" long loosen, disconect the cable and lead coming out of it, repalce, and it will run fine then.

I have a 93 volvo 850, it starts fine, but going down the road it chugs and tries to stall, I have to keep my foot on gas and brake to keep it from stalling at stops..My Husband replaced the fuel filter...


It definitely sound like a fuel starvation problem. Your hubby is on the right course by changing out the fuel filter. If the injectors are not getting enough fuel pressure from the fuel pump it could cause the condition you discribed. A new pump is fairly pricey but you could get one at a junk yard for far less.

1994 volvo 850 stalls


If you have not already replaced the idle control valve then remove it and soak it in brake cleaner for about 30 minutes to remove any oil residue which may prevent it from operating correctly.Before you refit it dry it fully with a clean lint free cloth.
