Start with the fuel filter. Could be the fuel pump also. Pressure would have to be checked.

Testimonial: "i have put it a new fuel filter today but not have check to see if it has fixed the problem, the fuel pump seems good, and i have not yet testing the pressure."

  • Randy Ohler Dec 12, 2014

    Filters will give the pressure needed to get the car going. But if they are clogged they can cause higher speed or uphill struggles or stalls. Got pressure, but not the volume. If your car starts and runs, you most likely have the pressure. Just a note though. Most people neglect the fuel filter. this is probably the biggest wear down factor of the fuel pump. The pump works to hard to get the fuel through.

    yeah i say it needed a new fuel filter i had just got the car not to long ago but i ask the original owner if they had ever replaced anything with the fuel system and they said no so the filter had never been changed in 14 years, but yeah the car starts and runs fine

Volvo 960 wagon stall


if it is lacking power and stalls at stops, it may be a bad fuel filter. when car is off, the dirt inside the filter drops to the bottom. but as soon as its started it rises up. that is what usually causes a car to stall. when stopped. if the car bogs down on hills and it was fine before, then its the fuel filter. there are many things to make a car stall at stops, but check the fuel filter first then go from there if problem still exists. and check all vacuum lines in engine compartment. there may be a leak. clean throttle body out if needed. good-day! check and or replace the Idle air control. (IAC) it may be sticking.
