88' ACCELERATION ISSUES + NOISE
1988 Volvo 240
My 88' volvo 240 with 200,000m has an issue with acceleration. It does fine when driving at low speeds, but around 35 mph it starts to have trouble accelerating. It also makes a noise(spinning rattle noise) when idleing and sometimes during acceleration. I drove this car from San Jose to Las Vegas with no problems. When I drove it through the mountains I used the third gear a lot to maintain speed limit. It didn't start having the problem until a week or two after the trip. Oh, and this is going to soud very noobish, there is a black rubber hose just hanging loosely underneath the engine, its visible when you look under the car.
