Question about 1995 Volvo 940

1 Answer

1995 940 non turbo

Intermittenly will not crank. I can hear the fuel pump. The battery is good. I turn the key and I hear the drone of the fuel then I engage the ignition to start position and nothing no sound no starter clinking no cranking sounds what so ever. Happens very infrequently at this point. Any suggestions?

It is a loose ground to the starter. look for a ground to the bell housing. chances are it's loose this is the ground for the solenoid on the starter. I had the same problem with my vehicle . please rate this thanks

You should hear the fuel pump run momentarily when the key is in the Run position. Ensure the engine has a good spark by removing one of spark plug boots. Stick a phillips screwdriver in the boot, and hold the handle of the screwdriver, and allow the shaft near ground. (motor works best) Have someone crank the engine and look for a good blue spark arch from the screwdriver and engine. If your getting good spark, then check the fuel pressure on the fuel injection rail.

if it has spark and only tries to sart when you prime then it is a fuel problem. pull the fuel hose where it connects to the injectors and run it into a container then turn on the key and see of fuel runs into the container, if not you need a fuel pump or filter. careful not to spill fuel all over the place. have someone turn on the key while you watch if fuel comes out so they can turn key off right away and not burn your stuff down.

I truck ran out of gas now wont run


Vehicle fuel pumps can often go bad if they are starved of fuel. The fuel pump is located in the fuel tank and is lubricated by the fuel that it pumps to the engine. Try turning the key to the on position and listening for the fuel pump to run. You should hear a small drone coming from the fuel tank for about 1.8 seconds while the pump builds pressure. You can also remove the gas cap, insert a funnel into the filler neck and use it as a means to hear the pump better. An assistant is helpful for this. If the pump does not run when the key is turned on, then you may have a bad fuel pump or system that activates it.

Car won' start, battery is ok, antifreeze is low but not out could this be the problem?


No. it wouldn't keep it from starting. If the engine cranks but won't start, probably gas or spark (ignition) related. Do you hear the fuel pump in the tank turn on for a couple of seconds, when turning key to on, not start? If you cannot hear the pump, better check if you are getting gas up to the engine. Maybe the fuel pump quit, or the pump circuit needs looked at. The pump should briefly turn on with key on to pressurize the fuel system-the fuel line and the fuel rail where the injectors are. Then the pump will turn off, and only come back on again when the engine is cranking, and stay on when running.
Correct fuel pressure is important for easy starting, and good engine performance. Have the fuel pressure checked against the specification for your vehicle. If fuel pressure is good, check the ignition system-check for spark.

the autoshutoff relay may be out also..it controls both the ignition and fuel pump thru the key switch.. try taking the negative battery cable off with the key on...kills all the circuits..then after turning the key off..reconnect the cable and turn the key to the run position..DO NOT START..listen for the fuel pump to buzz 2-3 seconds..some dash indicators will go out..then try to start but only if you hear the pump buzz..if it does not buzz, be looking at that relay..

First of all, you need to get the piece of metal out of your fuse box before you BURN YOUR CAR TO THE GROUND!!!!!!

Then, get your fuel pump replaced so it will work properly and not overload the circuits.

Car cranks then an hour later won't crank


Battery or starter. Sometimes the battery will have enough power to activate fuel pump and dash lights but not enough to turn starter.

88 k-1500 will not stay running after changing the trans


I'D START BY CHECKING FOR ANY VACCUM LEAKS NEAR AND ABOUT THE INTAKE MANIFOLD. IF IN FACT YOU DO HAVE AN 88 IT SHOULDNT BE CARBUREATED IT SHOULD BE FUEL INJECTED. IF SO YOU NEED MORE THAN 45PSI OF FUEL PRESSURE TO MAKE IT RUN RIGHT. TURN ON THE KEY BUT DO NOT START THE ENGINE. LISTEN AND SEE IF YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP CHARGE THE SYSTEM, SHOULD BE A LIGHT HISSING SOUND. IF SO START THE ENGINE. WHEN IT SHUTS OFF THEN TURN OFF THE KEY AND REPEAT THIS PROCESS AGAIN, IF YOU CANT HEAR THE NOISE AND IT WILL NOT CRANK THEN EITHER YOU MAY HAVE A FAULTY FUEL PUMP THAT IS ONLY WORKING INTERMITTENLY DUE TO BAD PUMP BRUSHES (REPLACE FUEL PUMP) OR YOU HAVE A BAD FUEL PUMP RELAY.
LET ME KNOW IF I CAN HELP YOU FURTHER
