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.

How Do I change the clutch on a 1986 240 Volvo station wagon?


You do not need a simple "solution" from an online forum. What you need is detailed service information. I would recommend spending the small fee (under $30/year) and subscribing to the service information for your vehicle at alldatadiy.com. There. you will find step-by-step instructions along with diagrams and lists of any special tools needed to complete the task.

I have a 1984 Volvo 240 DL 4 cylinder wagon, it has had some minor electrical issues (like the power locks turning on the back windshield wiper) and the other day the car's engine and power steering just...


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.

The rear window on our 2001 V70 cross country wagon mysteriously shattered while sitting in our garage


Lots of possibilities. If glass has a flaw, from a stone chip or something, then even just a quick temperature change can cause it to shatter. It is also possible it was under pressure because of something pinching, misaligned, caught in the hinge, etc. unfortunately it is probably not under warranty, although it always pays to check for recalls. But insurance should cover it. Maybe even the home owners insurance, since it happened in the garage.

Volvo 1984 StnWagon Dl turns over but dies when taking off the ga


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

1985 Volvo DL station wagon Starter problem


This happened to me on my '87 245.
It was a cracked distributor cap. Just a hairline, but enough.
Also check all the electrical plugs and connections under the hood.
If there is any corrosion or anything amiss clean and or replace as necessary.
Also check for wire insulation deterioration. This is a problem on some '84 to '88 240s.
