    Engine wants to start but won't. Will sit for a few days and then start. Have been told the problem is somewhere in the fuel line system but am not sure how to go about diagnosing the problem.

In my 86 volvo this is where a relay was under the glove box area i believe it was the fuel pump relay. In my vehicle i washed the car and found it did not start afterwards after many hours of troubleshooting i found this relay was full of water causing my problem, they hang it upside down so water can enter easily, i took mine apart and cleaned the contacts with sandpaper, worked fine afterwards.

You need to check your engine wiring harness. 84 is part of the crumbling, corroding wiring insulation years. If your harness has not been replaced, you may have to really scrounge around to find one of the "new" versions that has okay insulation on the wiring.

Take off the fuse cover and note the location of the in-tank fuel pump & the main pump. If memory serves they are fuses 5 & 7. connect the fuses with a jumper to bypass the pump relay. The fuel pump will come on with the key off! Listen for the sound. No Sound No Pump.
If the pump works, try starting the engine with the jumper attached. If it starts you have a bad relay behind the glove box.

NO Diesel engines dont have spark plugs so dont worry about it as the ones you have should be ok BUT first check the length of the plug thread to the ones you took out, are they the same as they have to be the correct length and not any diffreance also the earth tip on the end
If they look the same 100% your ok to go. RON

Starting a 1984 240 DL Volvo wagon after sitting in a garage for 5 years. Previously looked after really well and regularly serviced one owner.


Replace engine oil and filter, air filter and fuel filter.
Drain the fuel tank and add fresh fuel.
Remove the spark plugs and put a squirt of oil in each cylinder. Remove coil lead and crank engine until oil pressure comes up.(light goes out),
replace coil lead and start engine.. it will blow smoke for first few minutes. Check trans fluid, brake fluid etc before driving. Theres a good chance the brakes will need an overhaul.

The clicking you hear is probably the fuel relay. You should pull it and have it tested. If you have time to wait for delivery, order a new one if the old one is bad from IPDUSA.com. They are much cheaper than the dealer, even with shipping charges. Or, go to to a pick and pull yard and find one that will work. To get to the fuel relay, pull the glove box and follow the noise.
