Question about 1988 Volvo 740
It could be a number of things, but I don't think it is the timing. If it is there should be other signs, like after the car is shut off, does it keep trying to run and make clunking noises? Timing belts are cheap, but the labor is not...around $500 depending on the car.
I would reccommend doing a tune up...new spark-plugs.... check plug wires & coil/distributor with an OHM meter to the tolerances.
Check air filter and change the fuel filter.
This is where I would start.
