Adjusting sterring wheel in a 1989 volvo 740

I'm trying to figure out if I'm able to adjust my sterring wheel in my volvo, but can seem to. Is there a way I would be able to tell or it is not an feture on the car?

Thanks, Mary

There will be a paddle shaped lever that you pull down on the bottom of the steering column, reach under and forward, you will see it if your car has tilt.

1989 volvo749 wont start problem with automatic gear shift


If it won't crank, it can be the lever position sensor. Try cranking in N, and if that does not work, try moving the lever from R through the other selections to L while trying to crank it over. If that has an effect, you may need a new switch or the current switch cleaned and adjusted.
The switch is supposed to lock out the starter motor in all positions save P and N so you don't start in a driven gear by mistake.

Volvo 740 gl 1988 b230f automatic 4 speed transmission....Strange vibration at 50 to 90 kmh...


You don't give any details about the vibration, you know what "strange" means but the rest of us have to make a guess.

The most likely cause is that the wheels are out of balance. This can happen if you've recently struck a kerb or pothole, if an existing balance weight has fallen off, if you have recently removed a wheel and refitted it, or if you've had a tyre repaired or replaced without having the wheel rebalanced afterwards.

There are many other potential causes, but getting the wheel balancing checked and adjusted is the cheapest and easiest thing to start with. Get the balancing checked and then report back if the problem is not resolved.

Seems like when car is hot it 1990 740 GL won't start. Morning and evening yes. Have changed to new battery cleaned all connections etc. Is there a realy or switch that is heat realted


Check the connectors to the temperaure sensor, I think it has been crossed with the knock sensor. I had an earlier model volvo with same problem it was like that since I bought it. I found out somebody crossed the temperature sensor with the knock sensor. It took me a while to figure it out. I had to use an schematic diagram.
