Rough idle in 740 1990 Volvo Smooths out a bit when driving

A very well kept 740 1990 Volvo 141,000 km After purchasing discovered it ran a wee bit rough, especially when idling. We did get codes checked, but didn't indicate the problem. Thanks for help to smooth out our beautiful car.

When it idles rough it could be several things but, an easier thing you can do 1st is cleat the throttle body of any carbon(black stuff) with throttle body cleaner or something like carb cleaner. Ive used brake cleaner sometimes. But yea, look up your cars info about your motor and just clean all the black carbon off of anything at the throttle body and you may even need to take some of it apart to get down in there with a rag, little cleaning brush and the cleaner. Clean the thing you can move by hand called a "butterfly".

It could be the filter. Has the fuel been changed after storage? I would also thing the Carburetor or the fuel injectors might need to be cleaned.

Check wiring harness to fuel injectors where it runs through intake manifold - these chafe through and cause injectors to stay on or off. Also check engine grounds. 2 at back of head near firewall and one at drivers side engine mount (almost impossible to see)

You have to find the reason the check engine light is on. This will aid in diagnostics. Also, are you buying fuel at the same place both times?

Sounds like you may need to change your fuel filter. A dirty fuel filter will make it take a bit to make sufficient fuel pressure which will cause a rough idle or low power until it has run long enough to build up proper fuel pressure.

Could be, but you will need to check for trouble codes, since the engine light came on. The code or codes may help you troubleshoot it.

It could be a couple of things. I first guess is to check the fuel filter. If it has not been changed out within 15-25,000 miles deposits that within the gas tank has restricted the flow and will cause a hesitation or very rough idle. Now the desposit could have surface close to the injectors restricting the flow. Second, tune-up ( distributor cap and button, spark plugs, wires, etc). Third, check all you fuel hoses leading (especially leading from the fuel filter) to and from the engine.If they have never been changed, I would do so. Hope this a start of resolving your problem.

It shouldn't run at all with the solenoid disconnected. That should be 'ON' when the engine is on, or it won't run. Maybe the solenoid circuit is dirty so that it only opens a bit, or the fuel it allows through is limited by a dirty passage. I wonder why the wires were disconnected in the first place. It shouldn't run if that is the case!
