WE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM BUT NOT FOR LONG SO ITS BEEN WORKING FOR US AND HOPEFULLY THIS WILL WORK FOR YOU. WE'VE RECENTLY LEARNED BY JUST STARTING YOUR CAR THE CORRECT WAY IT HASN'T BEEN HAPPENING TO US ANYMORE AND THATS BY: WHEN YOU START YOUR CAR YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO HAVE YOUR FOOT ON THE BRAKES PUSHING LIGHTLY DOWN, THAT IS THE CORRECT WAY TO START A 1989 740 SERIES VOLVO QUOTED STRAIT FROM THE ORIGINAL MANUAL ON HOW TO OPERATE THE CAR. GOOD LUCK

Not starting after replacing fuel filter and tune-up


I had the same problem with a 1989 Volvo 740 GLE station wagon. I did the same thing you did. But this time I talked to the local Independent Volvo service shop, not the dealer. The problem turn out to a bad fuel pump in the gas tank. You can replace it from inside the back of the station wagon. Just remove the floor panel to access the top of the fuel tank. But before you do; note that there are two fuel pumps, one inline underneath the car on the drivers side, and the one inside the gas tank. Before, you replace any of the fuel pumps check the fuel pump relay behind the astray on the left side. It could also be a bad relay.

Climate Control (740 GLE)


When your a/c compressor clicks in and out like that it usually means that your refrigerant level is low. It cycles like that to keep you from damaging the compressor. Hope this helps.

Volvo slows down going up steep hills when air temp >95 Fahrenheit


THOSE VEHICLES HAVE A SECONDARY FUEL PUMP THAT FEEDS FUEL TO MAIN PUMP UNDER VEHICLE. THE SECONDARY PUMP IS INSIDE THE FUEL TANK. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE 2NDARY PUMP IS STARTING TO SEIZE ON YOU. CAUSING POOR FUEL PRESURE AND MAKING VEHICLE TO LOOSE POWER
