1991 Volvo 240 Engine Size unknown Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 400, 00 miles

It has been raining here and when it rains the car has a hard time starting (It is parked under a carport). This time it won't get going. When I turn the key it tries to turn over and the tries get slower and a little farther apart. It never catches. The speedometer was going up and down the last couple times that I tried.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi. I happen to be an owner of a Volvo 240 1990 edition. I always encountered the same problem when it rained before. I always had it checked by a mechanic but it turned out always the same. Just recently, I had brought it to a different mechanic and told me that I had to change the heater core so that I wont be having problems warming my engine. Now, with my new Volvo heater core, I never had problem starting my car even when it rains. But still, try to bring it to an mechanic since they're the ones who knows best.

Volvo 240 repair manual is very useful. It helped me every time I encountered some problems with my car.
