    It is very difficult to do it yourself. you have to remove most of the front part of the engine to get to the waterpump.

I did not have any problem installing the water pump. It took about 2 hrs.
Just pay attention to how the old one is designed and comes off the block.

Tap out the tube from the water pump to the heater core and replace the gasket in place with a small amount of gasket sealer to hold it in place.

use a lever to raise the water pump to squeeze the larger O ring into place so you can start the first bolt and you'll be on your way to the finish line in no time.

This is not a job for your average home owner do it your selfer. a little more than basic machanics is sugested to do this one.

Changing transmission fluid volvo 240dl


get a clear tube (about 5 feet long and wide enough to fit over the transline). Unscrew the transline from the radiator and place the the tube over it...place the other end of the tube into a bucket. Start the car, and give it a min before you start seeing the bubbles from the end of the old fluid...start pouring the new fluid in. when you fill her up, your done. don't over fill it.

Water pump


If you haven't found a manual yet, try your local library.
They might have one you can borrow, or at least a reference one you can photocopy.

Good luck.

Volvo 240DL sputters while driving


Not enough information here, but I would always replace the crank shaft position sensor first. Its at the rear of the engine, it senses grooves in the flywheel. Next I would check the fuel pump relay. Finally the Airflow meter.

Rotor replacing on a 240DL


The rotor has a very strong spring. just keep pulling. Be careful not to bend the shaft (I doubt that could happen). If you get a screwdriver or something to pry with, just try to force it straight up.
