SOURCE: my volvo 960 1997 wagon at times won't start. when I try to start it, it's like the battery is completely dead, but the battery is fine. what is making it do this ?

Depends on your definition of completely dead.
Do the lights work, but no crank ?
Can you jump start the car ?
A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery, the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch, along with the ground connections to the engine.

The air/fuel mixture is determined by sensors and the computer. If you're having trouble with cold starts it's probably a sensor. Take the car to a reputable repair shop which has the correct equipment and techs to do a diagnostic for you.

Acts like the choke is stuck closed it won't stay started and runs ruff until engine warms up then its fine. What do i do?


Well the choke has an electric part that heats up and makes the choke open in a few minutes. As soon as the engine starts the choke should open about 25 percent by way of a vac pull-off.
You can take the air cleaner off and watch the choke while someone starts the engine cold. If the choke does not open after it starts, check the choke pull-off. You can also open the choke with a screwdriver to see if the engine clears up.

Usually- the turbo's wastegate gets stuck from the heat/corrosion. A couple shots of pen oil I recomend PB BLASTER- (non flammable). Actuate the lever manually- with the engine WARM- NOT HOT OR COLD!! If the wastgate is frozen- its plugging and choking the exhaust.

For bdjenn, I have a 94 850 non turbo with similar problem. You might need to replace the fuel pump relay. Part costs about $50, is located next to fuse box. Also, check the thermostat in the air box under the air filter. The thermostat costs about $20 and often goes bad. When not working, it fails to shut off the hot air and doesn't let cooler, outside air in. Many people just remove the thermostat and fix the cool air intake to stay in the open position. This could be a problem in the winter if you live in a cold climate.
