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.

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.

1999 Volvo S70 Stalls at stop signs and traffic lights

These models had a problem with the electronic control modules, and this is what controls the idle speed. Sometimes they just need to be cleaned, but sometimes they are defective. Volvo has extended the warranty on some of them to 10 years or 200,000 miles if it is found to be defective.

My 1998 Volvo does the same sometimes. Better petrol helps for me, these engines like the higher octane petrol. My car does not like the BP petrol at all for example.
