Having problems with your 1982 Volvo 240 Series ?
Car idles rough, rpms start at normal, then go down, and repeat
\015 This does not happen when the car is warmed up, or even in the mornings. I have noticed though, that if i leave the car for an hour or more, when I start it, the rpms go up to normal, then down to where the car almost dies (and has a couple of times), then back up, then down, and so on.Also when I let the car warm up in the morning it sometimes starts to happen. I've replaced the distributor and cap now, and am going to replace the wires and plugs as soon as I can afford it. Is that the only problem, or is it something else?\015
You could have a vacuum leak or the map sensor is going out.
