1979 930. Pretty fresh engine/electrical throughout. Not old used up and fagged out piece. Stalled at stop sign today. Key off then key on to start and car fires up. Count to four and car stalls. Key off, key on to start - cranks but no fire. Same procedure a few times more. Finally wiggle relays - I can hear them working. Car now starts again, but count to four and it stalls (still not in gear). Wiggle WUR wire out of desperation - look for anything out of sorts. See nothing. Try to fire again and it does. Drives 5 miles to home and seems trouble free.

It has been suggested that roll over valve switch may be bad. Also suggested to run small ground wire from #85 pin on red fuel pump relays to assure best contact. Also to check time delay switch (Where is it?)
