Please help!\n\nMy Volvo, which I bought this summer, didn't having any starting\nissues until the temp first dropped to 32 in October.\n\nNow, it sounds like a clunker. After Thanksgiving, it wouldn't even\nstart (well, it did, but after a few stalls it finally died).\n\nThis is when we replaced the spark plugs and discovered they were\ncovered in soot and grime. The new spark plugs seemed to be the\nsolution to my cold start problems and all was well with my Volvo\nuntil today when my car had a very difficult time starting again -\nbumpy and stalling. It finally died and wouldn't restart.\n\nSo, the spark plugs helped - but only for a week. Why is this?\n\nCan anyone help me figure out what the problem is with my car?\n\nI've read about Air Mass Meters and Fuel Pump Relays....I don't know\nwhere to begin and I'm not, obviously, a mechanic by any means. I'm\njust a woman who needs her car to run and doesn't want to make an\nuniformed or unecessary trip to a repair shop.\n\nThanks for your help!
