Have a fuel pressure test run. Your car is 20 years old and if the fuel pump has never been replaced that is more than likely your problem.

88 740 volvo cranks but shuts off within minutes, has new fuel pump filter and relay

You may have to bend the conections on the fuel pump relay, so they fit tightly. Try gently twisting it l/r, while turning the engine over.
Hope that's it.

1990 volvo 740 wagon shuts off while driving

sounds like you have a computer glitch. i would take it to any auto shop and pay 50 bucks so they can take a look at your e.c.u. (engine control unit) we had a similar problem a few years ago with our 1990 volvo 740 gle 2.3l station wagon. it was a glitch with the computer. got a mixed signal with the mass air flow sensor.

I suggest you check your fuel pressure and your Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAF). The fuel pumps and the MAF often fail causing these symptoms, but there may be other issues too. I suggest you take it to a qualified mechanic to avoid replacing unnecessary parts, since there are several possible problems.
