Question about 1986 Volvo 740
Hi i have a 86 volvo sedan gle and it was doing the same thing so i
started searching and the fuel relay makes a click and as soon as it
does that the car idles really rough, chokes and then dies so now my
1. could it be the relay?- it get kinda hot but not hot enough to melt so im not sure if thats the problem.
2. the volvo has ''2'' fuel pumps one inside the tank and the other outside, could it be that one of the pumps is out? and the other pumps is taking on the strain for the other?
3. or just simply the fuel filter? has anybody ever have this problem????
Check the fuel pressure regulator. Its a vacuum assisted device that sits on top of the engine. Pull the small vacuum hose off the regulator and see if it is wet with gasoline. If so replace the regulator - AutoZone $60. Let me know.
