Question about 1988 Volvo 740
I have a friend who is driving my '88 740 and on Thursday he brought it by the house because he couldn't get it past 30 mph aND HAS A HORRIBLE SQUEAL TO IT. After letting it cool down he tried taking it back to work and then brought it back sayng that it was showing the same symptoms. Both fuel pumps were replaced within the last 6 months.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
93 Volvo - 940 and so the steering is pretty hard to steer when I am driving slowly and I could literally hear and feel a rubbing sensation. It's ok while i am driving fast.

Horrible squeal. If my 740 made a horrible squeal I would be upset also. These ideas - timing belt has somehow slipped out of time. Easy check. One of the other belts are slowing the engine any of them can squeal: The alternator belt The power steering belt The fan belt. Does the noise occur only when driving? Does the engine sound normal when revving in neutral? Does turning on the lights or a/c affect the noise? Does the power steering work when car is standing? Is the squeal heard when turning the wheels. A logical diagnosis will identify and eliminate these easy to fix problems.
