Question about 1988 Volvo 740

1 Answer

1988 Volvo 740 GLE non turbo. Hard start then randomly stalls after normal driving. Sometimes it drives for hours and sometimes it stalls in a few minutes. Just changed the fuel pump relay and the condition , while improved, still exists. Idle speed is consistent at 800 or 900 rpm. Is there another relay that could be causing this; it feels characteristically electrical in nature.Suggestions?

SOURCE: 1988 volvo 740 gle non-turbo loud fuel pump

Have you tried replacing the fuel filter? It is located under the cars center on the left side ..

You will find it alongside the main high pressure fuel pump on a metal support plate held up with 3 bolts.
Remove the 3 bolts with a 10mm socket wrench to lower the plate. Place a catch pan below the filter to catch any leaking fuel.
Be careful not to get fuel in you eyes or running down your arms. Remove the 2 bolts holding the banjo fuel pipe connections to the filter.
Note the direction of the filter.
Loosen the clamp holding the filter to the support plate and slide out the old filter.
Install the new filter in the same direction as the old one and use new copper sealing washers on the banjo connections.
