    hello,

    I have the same problem. I did replace the

    generator brushes and that seemed to work for awhile. Did you fix your problem?

Driving my 91 volvo 740 and it will stall then wait acouple of min. starts right up why


In my experience this has been one of two things. The first and most common is a faulty fuel pump relay. (located above the fuse panel behind the ashtray) or a short somewhere in the coil/ignition system.

My car just stopped working it seems no gas is gettin to the engine but it used to stall alot not like oh s*** im out of gas but the stall when you press the gas and absolutely nothin happens then the car...


Here's a technique that works for me. Locate the fuel pump relay, in the fuse and relay panel. Pull the fuel pump relay and look at the bottom of the relay. You will see that the cover can be removed by carefully prying it off using a small flat blade screwdriver or an x-acto knife. Once the cover is removed, reinstall the relay. Have someone start the car while you watch the contacts on the relay. If the contacts close, the relay is OK. If you turn the key to on without starting the car, you car close the relay manually. (You can use your finger to close the relay. Listen carefully, at the fill tube with the gas cap removed. If the fuel pump is getting power you will hear the whine of the motor. If not then check the fuel pump fuse first then the 12 volts at the connector on top of the fuel tank. I've had a problem such as you described, where the car will start but stalls if you try to give it gas. I found that some GM's use a small (2 inch)section of rubber hose to connect the pump to the steel fuel line inside the tank. The hose splits which allows enough fuel to reach the engine, but not enough to run it under any load. The fuel filter should be replaced if it is suspect, but probably isn't your main problem. Hope this helps! Dano

Check the fuel relay in the fuse box they tend to burn out after a few years.. To access it. Remove the plastic cover by the cigarette lighter and remove the screw. Then remove the panel. This the big white relay on the left numbed 119 or 135. Replace it and see if this helps.
