You old bird also cannot figure out ah ? Then who else can ?

like misfire(a little) or something. Don't think is the spark plug or
cable cause it has been changed.
If running on three piston, it would be GREAT as I manage to score
180km/h on the highway . Fix another piston I can reach 250km/h [:-)]

older volvo got some 'tubes' around the combustion system... if one of
them disconnected or bocor, it should most probably cause the 'engine to
shiver'... i recommend u to do simple checks first, ensure all wires are
connected tightly, no 'floating' sockets or wires... also check on the
fuses.... thats all from me... ehehehhe...

Engine stable now. He immediately identified the problem, give the engine
a little wash and it was done.....
This weekend going back to get my turbo hose changed to silicon and some

learn from other older bird
seanswn, sorry if my previous statement misled you, what i mean is 'it
sound like runing only 3 piston". Here if what I managed to check,
whenever ther start sounding "u tu tu tu " and before the engine run
smooth. I had tried to unplug each plug cable. So far managed to unplu No
1 cable and it seem to be either No 1 cable signal was no transmitted of
it could be No.1 injector problem. Will continue to investigate.
By the way, is your 360 an injection model or running on carb ??

Carb will be more easy to solve, those old Fuel Injector are scarry .

for this. The then to clog up after a period of time especially when the
pertrol tank is rusty.

complicated if we understand the machanism. I am still not sure if the
injectors that cause the problem.

and now the engine is stable again..
(I serviced the crankcase because at the same time I got blue smoke coming
out from exhaust when I rammed)
I think you should consider servicing your fuel injection.

with intermittent idling when stop at traffic light. Send for repair cpl
times but don't fix the problem - it appear to help but not totally and
it get worst and more regular over time. Yesterday send for service again
and the guy change the rotor arm in the distributor. The rotor arm look
bad, and the engine feel much better with new rotor arm. Need to monitor
cpl more days.
