    I hadn't driven my car in two or three days. Car was hard to start in
    the morning. It went about five miles and started stalling out and
    finally stopping. Now car will start but not idle at all. It will
    start rev up; but, not idle. My brother changed the fuel filter which
    filled up with gas but it will not idle. Could it be the external
    fuel pump, fuel pump inside the gas tank, or the air intake sensor, or
    none of the above???? And how would I know?
    Thanks bunches for any help! This starving actress has to get to

    I assume it's a Volvo. What year and model? What country are you in so
    we can guess which fuel system you have?

  4. If it starts and revs, but won't idle, then maybe the air idle control
    valve is gunged up?
