Question about 1985 Volvo 740
On a recent trip from california to florida, the main fuel pump on the car started to whine loudly; i was told by a volvo shop that at around 180,000 miles or so the pumps start to go bad; the prepump in the tank was already out so i assumed it was that, that as causing the main pump to work harder and whine; i just replaced the prepump yesterday and the check valve on the main pump-[was hard starting and dumping fuel on startup] and now it runs well, no hard starting but the main pump is humming a little. Do i need to replace the main pump?
If it works leave well alone till it starts getting noisy,its a 1985 ,over 20yrs old so it wont last much longer till it fails the annual vehicle technical inspection,then when you need a part for the suspension or steering its obsolete.
