Default Rough Idle of 1991 Volvo 240

I just purchased a 1991 Volvo 240 wagon with 145,000 miles. I purchased the car from a body shop that had aquired the car for settlement of an unpaid bill. The car is very clean and runs nice. The problem I am having is it hard to start, takes 3 to 4 attempts, and the car idles rough at stops. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I really like the car and want to keep it for awhile, it is very utilitarian and will serve my purpose as a good second car.

Thanks
Vern

Hi Vern, welcome to the forum.

I'm not privy to the 240s, but my 1st $ 2nd replies at the following thread may help:

Be sure to post the same question in the 240 forum as well.

Good luck,


JPN

Just to follow up on this question, I took it in to the dealer, they replaced the fuel pump regulator and it is running 100% better.
