Question about 1990 Volvo 740
A very well kept 740 1990 Volvo 141,000 km After purchasing discovered it ran a wee bit rough, especially when idling. We did get codes checked, but didn't indicate the problem. Thanks for help to smooth out our beautiful car.
When it idles rough it could be several things but, an easier thing you can do 1st is cleat the throttle body of any carbon(black stuff) with throttle body cleaner or something like carb cleaner. Ive used brake cleaner sometimes. But yea, look up your cars info about your motor and just clean all the black carbon off of anything at the throttle body and you may even need to take some of it apart to get down in there with a rag, little cleaning brush and the cleaner. Clean the thing you can move by hand called a "butterfly".

It could be the filter. Has the fuel been changed after storage? I would also thing the Carburetor or the fuel injectors might need to be cleaned.

Check wiring harness to fuel injectors where it runs through intake manifold - these chafe through and cause injectors to stay on or off. Also check engine grounds. 2 at back of head near firewall and one at drivers side engine mount (almost impossible to see)
