The car is a 1988 V6 760 Volvo.
When the car is left unused for a week or more, when started the engine begins to mis fire badly, will not take any load, drops down to one or two cylinders and then will run counter revolutionary. It takes at least 20 minutes to coax the engine to run properly.
Is there a solution to this situation?
Thanks
John
