VOLVO 940 BODY PROBLEM

1993 Volvo 940 • 250,000 miles

I live in France and have a Volvo Wentworth estate 1993 model that has
served me very well for many years but unfortunately developed a fault
whereby the engine runs after a fashion when the air flow meter is
disconnected but stops immediately it is reconnected!

The fault is not in the airflow meter as it has been changed twice to
no avail, but the local garage mechanics are pulling their hair out
now as it has been with them for six months and they cant find the
fault! They have also changed the cam position sensor and petrol pump under car to no avail!

There are no Volvo garages in this part of France so nobody to ask
about the problem, also this model was never imported to France anyway
so they have no experience of it!

I would be most grateful for any advise you can give me regarding what other parts may need changing to get the car running again.
