Question about 1991 Volvo 240

91 volvo 240 - keeps stalling out, shakes a lot when idling

It stalls out after starting but I can keep it going if I rev the engine - then I'm good. It does shake quite a bit when I'm at a stop and I can feel that it wants to stall out when I accelerate. Help - I need to car to exist and I'm out of work - broke - is this something I can fix myself? Maybe a 25 amp fuse?

    240 volvo 4 cylinder. starts has a little rough idle. then settles in, But upon giving gas it seems to choke down the engine at light to medium rpm either in park, neutal or in gear.

    the shaking comes from the motor and took it to have it diagnosed and was told the alternator and battery were bad. and it also indicates reduced engine power

My 1990 240DL was doing the same thing and it turned out to be the fuel pressure regulator. It, unfortunatley, is a shop repair. $117 for the part and $150 for labor. It runs fine now.

Engine stalls when stepping on gas pedal and will not idle on its own.


Have you checked the ignition timing? Maybe you need to turn the distributor to the left or right if you don't have the timing light gun
