Engine Performance problem
1990 Volvo 760 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 250, 00 miles
I have a 1990 Volvo 760 turbo wagon that I gave to my girl friend. It sat for 4 years before I gave it to her. It ran fine until really cold weather came and then started to run poorly until eventually it would not start. I replaced fuel pump and fuel filter and it ran fine until cold weather this year and the problem repeated itself. Her brother is a (mechanic?) And I told him to replace the fuel filter again but he insists that the filter is not the problem.
I have had Volvos for a long time and have run into this before. Runs in warmer weather, will not run or runs poorly in cold weather. Replace filter and it works fine.
What else is there that would cause this problem? I say it is the fuel filter and water in the tank from sitting loaded the original filter and also loaded the new filter and should put on another filter.
