Unhappy Re: Volvo Penta 2002 - Stalling and rough idle - HELP!


Thanks for the suggestion...we've added fuel injector cleaner, and checked the filters.
No improvement.
Mechanic has visited again, not found the core problem, and is still guessing at bad gas.
All I know, is that this is giving ME bad gas....

Obtaining a 2nd opinion, hopefully, today.
Trying to avoid the expense and downtime of fuel polishing, plus, we haven't found anyone that can perform this service in the Burlington, Ont. area.

I read the specs on the Seafoam, and it sounds very interesting.
Have forwarded your message over to my hubby, too.

We are dock bound til this is resolved, because I don't have confidence in the engine performance, especially for when we are going out and coming back in from the dock!
