Question about 1990 Volvo 240
At times car will start just fine then later in the day wont start at all. When I turn the key power goes on to radio, lights etc but car does not crank or maky any other noise. Today I turned the key and just held it on and about five seconds later the engine turned over and car is running great. This is still a sporadic problem but mechanic says it could be my starter
It sounds like your mechanic is right, to me it sounds like its just a dirty old starter having trouble making contact and turning... thats all. Once you replace it with a new starter that has a clean armature and new solenoid, it should start like clockwork!
