First check for codes.By no vacuum do you mean the brake pedal is hard and is the engine still racing?If so check and see if the vacuum hose to the brake booster.What you might have is carbon build up on the valves and pistons.This is a common problem with this vehicle.The problem is the motors in these cars are meant to be driven hard.So if you drive it in town and slow driving it will get this carbon build up.You need to take it out on the highway once in a while and step it down and get the cobwebs out of it.Also when is the last time it had a good tune up.Plugs,fuel filter,and air filter.G.M.makes a good top engine cleaner that they use to remove the carbon from the engine.Has to be done with the vehicle running, then the plugs have to be removed and the cleaner has to be added to the cylinders and let it sit over night.Not a thing to do in your back yard.Plus there are special directions to follow for this repair.Hope this helps.Let me know if you need more help.Good luck.

My Volvo 1981 244 GL ENGINE CUTS OUT, IT RESTARTS BACK UP IMEDIATLY WHEN RESTARTED THEN CUTS OUT AGAIN IS THIS AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM ?


Also check fuel pressure. You can usually borrow a guage from a local parts store. Check pressure with key on ignition not running, then as started and reved up. should be between 35-45 psi. Every vehicle is diff tho.

These type of engines have direct rail injection so each cylinder has an injector. The problem sounds like the engine is only running on 3 cylinders (or less). It could be a faulty injector. Are you losing coolant? Is it overheating? Is there steam or excessive smoke coming out of the exhaust tail pipe?

Volvo S40 Error code P0110 and P0105


there is two sensors that those code refer too. The map sensor, and the iat sensor. and both would have an effect on gas mileage. Both sensors would just make the car run a rich mixture.

Turned off and backfired


I still think this is a timing problem, most likely with the crankshaft sensor. However, it could also be in the throttle positioning sensor, since you had raised the idle to get it to work momentarily. Also, the mass air flow sensor cannot be ruled out entirely. I would start with the crank sensor, then the throttle positioning sensor. Try these and let me know.
