1992 volvo 940 has alectronic controlled idle. Idles at 850rpm when cold, but when engine is warm idles at 600rpm and oil light flickers on. any ideas please.

It could be a fluctuation in oil pressure due to the cold temperature, or it's due an oil change with a new filter. The oil pressure switch might also be faulty.

My car was idling at a light and it shut off on me, restarted right away but then shut off again in less than 60 second. I let it sit for about 20 mins and then it started again.

sounds like a bad crank sensor, have car scanned to find problem code. if no scanner go to any auto parts store and they will scan for free. also check the fuel filter.

Truck idles wierd with a/c on

In this series of truck they used an idle up solenoid mounted on the side of the carb and is controlled by a vacume switch. If the idle setting is too high the cut out switch will shut off vacume and idle drops and goes up again because it is too low for the load. This will go indefinitly till you have the idle set down on idle solenoid screw.this is basicaly a very easy job if you know where the screw is. Dont set wrong one

No cold air. compressor works for seconds and shuts off

Replace the compressor, if it quits running after a few seconds, it is more than likely your compressor causing the problems
