My 1990 240DL was doing the same thing and it turned out to be the fuel pressure regulator. It, unfortunatley, is a shop repair. $117 for the part and $150 for labor. It runs fine now.

most of the time it's the vuccum leak under the hood . but more times then not it's the bellows in the dash that open and close the flow door you have to pull the dash sorry

Start Then Stall


The platinum wire in your air-mass assembly is shot. This happens with most 240/740 models at least once in the lifetime of the vehicle. Find a good used air-mass meter with the same stock number (50-75 dollars), and replace it---that should take care of it.

P.S.
Save your self the money of the rear harness---It will just break again and only serves the rear window wiper/squirter and cyclops light.

1991 Volvo 240 bucks like a bronco and doesn't want to start.


I had the same problem w/ my 1979 242 GT.....Try looking at the fuel pump inside the gas tank (go in from the top under the mat in the trunk).....I had a broken hose that was connecting the fuel line from the in-tank fuel pump....or try cleaning or replacing the filter sock located there too & make sure the filter sock is at its proper height ! and check on the fuel pump itself....My bucking problem was more noticeable when the fuel level was low.
