1988 volvo 760 turbo - trouble

I have a 1988 volvo 760 turbo. it acts like it is fuel starved (i.e., losing power, stalls, dies while driving). I think the fuel filter needs to be replaced. Can you tell me where the fuel filter is located? Can you tell me what other mechanical problem(s) that would have the same symptoms? Please help!!

Check the air pipe from the air filter. make sure that it is connected to filter box top. if it is loose the car will run rough and stall.

Immobilizer is shutting the car down most likely. Try a different key see if it happens to the other key or bring it to volvo and have them get a new key for it. And have them check the anntenna for the immobilizer. The immobilizer system will shut the car off if it does not sense the correct wireless signature from the key, after a few seconds. You can take the key out of the ignition then reinsert it, try again see if it starts.

More common problems not volvo specific:Plugged fuel injectors maybe, turbo controller problem maybe. Or an ignition control module problem after it heats up. Hard to tell.

I used to have that same exact model and year of car and it had a turbo controller problem that would only be noticeable if at high altitude, 5000ft or above and engine under significant load( climbing a long hill) the engine would surge up and down constantly. Replaced the turbo controller and it was fixed.




Good luck with that

Check starter connection. Mine does the same thing. Also check belts. A pressure hose could be unattached. Right above the starter there is a hose. Check all of them to make sure they are hooked up.
