I have a 1992 volvo 240 wagon 5 speed manual. I have not been driving a lot since covid closures so she doesnt drive as much as usual, however I had the follow issue this evening. I did drive yesterday and did feel that at times she was losing power

She starts fine and will stay in an idle with no issue however when I press the accelerator- there is no power transferred to the engine (even when peddle is depressed all the way to the floor) and the engine stalls out.
I can put the car in gear and take my foot off of the clutch and the car will remain in idle as well, it isnt until I try to depress the gas pedal that she stalls
No warning lights on dash to signify an issue
I have checked and replaced the fuses for both fuel pumps (although main pump fuse has a history of overheating and melting)
I hear the fuel pump turn on
Throttle linkage appears intact and moves appropriately when maneuvered.
o2 sensor appears normal

Any help is appreciated

might be an idea to check the air filter, if its been sitting there may be something that has made a nest in there, blocking the air flow.
