1982 Volvo 244DL problem no power on acceleration

Hi
I have a 1982 Volvo 244DL manual which has been regularly serviced since I got it in 1982. Regardless of how much I put my foot on the accelerator the car will not change gear. The car does not seem to have any power at all.
If I am cruising down a hill and the revs increase sufficiently, the car will change to second.
Any ideas what the problem might be?

Try the vaccume control module on the transmission. That is the likely culprit.

My boss has a 85 244 DL. Hers had the same problem. We placed a momentary button on the dash for the starter motor. That fixed the problem she had with it not turning over with the key.

1982 244 gl ,searching for wiring diagram!!


Go to amazon.com, alibris.com, or abebooks.com and search for either a shop manual (best) or a Haynes-type guide. both will have wiring diagrams.
If this fails there is a store in Seattle that specializes in auto manuals but is pretty expensive. Paid $25 for an owners manual for my 1982 Volvo diesel, but they had it where no one else does. Don't have name but a Google search should turn it up - go the first route first
