Re: Volvo Penta 2002 - Stalling and rough idle - HELP!
We have a 2002 Four Winns 268 with a 5.7 carb Volvo Penta. We had the same type of issue. The mechanic said we had a corroded distributor cap, and wires, so he did a tune-up. Worked for a day and started doing the same thing. He then said it was water in the gas. He drained 60 gallons and filled the tank. It worked for a day. Finally I took it to another dealer and two of his mechanics took her for a sea trial. It turns out it was a loose wire on the high pressure side of the fuel pump. He repaired it and, $1500 in total, she has been running fine ever since.
