engine cut out loss of power

Post by flood » Mon Oct 26, 2009 5:03 am

my volvo440 1995 has been giving me problems, firstly i have to keep the tank over a third full, otherwise as soon as i apply any gas it cuts out, secondly the revs are jumping between1000/2000 revs i have replaced the fuel filter, distributer cap, rotor arm, plugs and now im stuck help could it be a faulty fuel line or a faulty petrol gauge?

Which engine is fitted?

Have you checked for any fault codes with the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) unit?
