When driving down the road sometimes the car stalls if you put it in nuteral it will start back up again and sometimes it can go days and not do it and then does it again any ideas what this may be? Besides this it runs great

I had the same problem with my 93 940 about 5 years ago - I replaced the ignition switch - the thing you put the key in - it hasn't happened since. Apparently the contacts wear out and stop contacting now and then - especially if you hit a bump and you have a lot of weight on your key chain. It's worth a shot - intermittent problems like that are a pain!
