When I bought the 82 turbo it had the start then stall issue when cold. Sometimes would take five tries before it would idle. I ended up doing the full kjet service stuff like mentioned above. But the culprit was control pressure matched system pressure. A clogged control pressure regulator. This makes the engine way too lean when cold starting. When fully warmed up it would seem fine at idle but was down on power and not very responsive to the throttle.

1993 245 Classic, 435k miles, enem V15. IPD bars and chassis braces. Simons sport exhaust from Scandix. sbabbs ezk chip. Been a good road warrior. Genuine Volvo rebuilt leaky M47.
