Question about 1989 Volvo 740
After a big storm yesterday. my 1989 volvo 740 non turbo 2.3ltr single overhead cam 8 valve car wont stay running. it will start but after a few seconds it quits. i put in gas line antifreeze but didn't seem to help. i also checked the air filter. its not plugged. neither is the exaust pipe. I dont know what esle it could be.
I'm presuming the B23 engine? Have you checked fuel pressure valve located on the inlet manifold, are your plugs getting soaked in fuel?
If not try looking at the Fuel relay in the block situated behind the ash tray below the Radio.
It might be easier for you to access this by taking out the coin tray, flip the cover plate off the cigar lighter it will reveal 2 screws, take that out and the tray then you'll see a whole lot more relays.
There are different types/colours I'm guessing your could be Blue but there are white ones too.Try Jiggling them carefully then crank the engine if it runs but poorly replace.
You must replace with correct one even if it is Blue some have Copper Lugs others steel and they are different.
