How Do I change the clutch on a 1986 240 Volvo station wagon?

You do not need a simple "solution" from an online forum. What you need is detailed service information. I would recommend spending the small fee (under $30/year) and subscribing to the service information for your vehicle at There. you will find step-by-step instructions along with diagrams and lists of any special tools needed to complete the task.

We have a 1986 Dodge Colt Vista Wagon runs but won't move.

It sounds as if the seals have cracked or broken. Depending on how long it sat, and the service history, it may be very hard to do anything but have it inspected for pressure to determine that, at a transmission shop.

I would suggest seeing if you can get a free estimate, hopefully, a low cost tow.

You may start looking for an imported Japanese transmission to replace it, usually those come with a warranty and are much less expensive even with shipping, than having one rebuilt.

Of course, then there's the longevity issue, newly rebuilt should last years and provide a good return on the investment if the rest of the car is worth that much of an investment.

I will warn you, the newer fuel systems are designed to handle the fuel that will soon be used across the country. I don't know how long, but before long the older cars will have to be retrofitted with new fuel pumps, lines, hoses, and other fuel related parts due to the increased ethanol/methanol and additives. I just sold my 94 Stealth and that was definitely a consideration for me as it's expensive to change those items out for new ones made with newly designed seals.
good luck

I am having problems finding parts for a 1900 Pontiac Safari Station Wagon(ie: Radio,emblem,etc) what 1988 Pontiac model is the nearest to the Safari?

Safari VAN maybe? instead of wagon. Then you would be looking for Astro van by chev. The years are still going to be the problem, you will need to get as close as possible for the interior parts - radio and such. As far as exterior parts-? Oh I just re-read your years you have posted, you might want to correct that- I don't think they made a 1900 model :-)
