Is there anything I can diagnose '91 volvo 940 turbo myself? Mechanics say can't find anything wrong with car. It stall like losing power fuel pump relay & ignition fuse get hot sometimes

the pointer is the hot ignition fuse
that indicates excessive current draw almost to the point of blowing the fuse
with the car stalling ( stopping /cutting out) I would be focusing the attention on the electronics of the vehicle in areas of the ignition control module or the ECM itself
there could be components that ore overheating and failing or shorting and overheating and failing
The ECM you can test by getting a known good unit and substituting it and the ignition control module can be like wise replaced or checked by an accredited auto electrician who has the test equipment
Lastly you can go to autozone and see if the fault codes can be read ( free) or to an accredited service shop that has experience on volvo cars ( may cost for the reading) and fix what faults show up

1997 oldsmobile 88 Cuts off while driving at any given time but starts right back up.

You need to have the GM dealer perform a scan of the systems memory, it will have a fault code that will lead the tech to the cause of this stalling which may be the CKP sensor.

When some error codes are displayed the computer puts the car into limp mode - this restricts the speed of the car so you can get home or to a repair shop - you should not drive it now until the problem is solved to avoid any further damage.
You may just have a faulty camshaft position sensor on one bank or maybe the timing belt may have jumped a cog and require replacement.
Code readers are very reliable - the code readers only displays the fault information that is sent from the computer - this tells the mechanic the exact fault or gives them a good starting point to diagnose the problem.
Sometimes resetting the fault codes in the computer with the code reader will fix the problem (it may have just been an incorrect fault indication) - if not - it will default again which confirms the fault and you will need to fix the problem.
