Question

I inherited the car, no idea about prior maintenance. Sometimes starts right up, but often after being driven takes 10 -20 minutes before starts. I also do not have an owners manual.

    The engine coolant temperature sensors are a problem on these models, as well as vacuum leaks. First thing to do is check the codes. You can do this without any special tools, here are some instructions here: http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=47502
