Just bought a 93 850 GLT. It starts nicely but after 15 minutes shuts off and won't start again. I have so far just left it until another day and repeat the same process same results except when it was much colder out then it was surging instead of idling, then it would just stop as before.

Any ideas were to start?

Incidently I just tried a neat trick I saw on another forum. I flooded it and it wouldn't start even after several days sitting. I pulled the fuel pump fuse out and turned the engine over with the gas pedal down. I was then able to clear the gas out and start the car once again after replacing the fuse.

Try installing a fuel guage on the car and watch fuel pressure.You may have a bad fuel pump.
