1997 Volvo 850 Q&A
1997 Volvo 850 Question: engine stalls
Fuel pumps are the main cause of a no start on this model, but these symptoms sound a little different then what you'd normally see when the pump fails. Is the Check Engine Light on and have you checked for diagnostic trouble codes? - Bret Bodas

It would be best to have the car in for testing and diagnosis, esp. if the check engine light was on previously. If the SERVICE light is coming on for the first 2 min. of running, that means the vehicle is due for routine service. Normally air flow meters do not cause a no-start condition, just poor running & poor fuel economy & yes sometimes a stalling condition. A few questions: Will the car idle by itself? Will it stay running if the gas pedal is pressed on? Is there smoke from the tail pipe or foul odors when running? Call Todd or Dave @ 616.774.7048 www.communityautomotive.com - communityauto

So when I start my car up it wants to sputter a few times and sometimes even shut off because the idle drops so to low to keep it started. It has always started right back up. Also if I am stopped ...
