84 volvo 240 109K mi - ok, since I bought my volvo this summer, it sometimes does this wierd thing, maybe once a day and that is when I am driving, it will suddenly die on me. Usually it will start back up, but sometimes, especially when I am in a line or in front of a lot of traffic, it won't. This is both inconvenient and dangerous! Also, sometimes it will not start hot. I've had it looked at twice, had the fuse box cleaned, thermostat checks out, etc. Now they say it could be the wiring harness, but just in case I don't have to spend the same amount as my car is worth to get it fixed, my question is what else could it be? Also, if I've brought it in twice and he's giving me no other diagnosis/option than wiring, should I trust this guy - he seemed to have that diagnosis in his head before he even looked at it.
