Engine Performance problem
1993 Volvo 850 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 129k miles
I pulled a bone-head move again (I think!) Sprayed the engine compartment down with a garden hose. Drove car about a mile immediately assuming that would remove any water if I fouled something. Tried to start car 4 hours later and would turn over but not start. To me, sounds like it's starving for guess since it almost "catches, " but won't.
Had new volvo fuel pump and filter installed 20 months ago.
Did same thing about a month ago--sprayed, drove, stalled. Engine acted same way, but started eventually after about 10 minutes trying.
Help! Diagnosis? Ideas?
Could it be spark plugs? Fuel Pump/Filter?(Shouldn't be I wouldn't think) Timing Belt? Coil? Whatever?
Really appreciate your response.
have the same problem?
