SOURCE: replacing water pump on 1989 volvo 240dl

I did not have any problem installing the water pump. It took about 2 hrs.
Just pay attention to how the old one is designed and comes off the block.

Tap out the tube from the water pump to the heater core and replace the gasket in place with a small amount of gasket sealer to hold it in place.

use a lever to raise the water pump to squeeze the larger O ring into place so you can start the first bolt and you'll be on your way to the finish line in no time.

This is not a job for your average home owner do it your selfer. a little more than basic machanics is sugested to do this one.

SOURCE: 1998 VOLVO S70 INTERMITTENT CHECK ENGINE LIGHT,

intermittent engine codes are not serious and it just indicates that one or more of the sensors is reporting a bad signal..at what ever time intervals.....this just means that as you drive , bad connections develops as a result of the movement for a second or long enough for the computer to detect a fault and then it goes back to normal....you can check for bad connections yourself by wiggling the wires with engine running and see if the light comes on ..which will tell you where the bad connection is and then fix it yourself or just wait until the connection gets really bad and the engine light stays on permanently .the computer will then store the code thats causing the fault and you'll know exactly where it's coming from.

Hi Kathleen, I'm glad to help!

Kathleen, I can tell you this because I work at a dealer myself and through the years when a problem comes in like yours and we can't find anything wrong its because whatever is causing the issue is not setting a code. There is only a few things that can cause a problem like yours and not set a code. (1) Fuel pumps can cause intermittent problem but will never set a code. After running for a while they will simply stop working but then after sitting a while will cool down and work fine again. (2) Exhaust issues. After the exhaust system has a lot of years and miles on it, the debris inside it can restrict the air flow and in some cases cause the vehicle to die and run poorly after a restart, but after sitting awhile the debris falls back down and the vehicle runs fine again until it happens again. NOTE: I'm not saying that either of these is your problem BUT, you have to start somewhere. Your only other option would be to let it die until the check engine light come on and then you'll know for sure it has set a code. After it sets a code then the dealer should be able to find your problem. The problem is that if its one of the issues I mentioned it will never set a code. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kathleen.

It is most likely that you have a hole in your vacuum hoses (check your flame trap too) or your 02 sensor is bad. i would check both. good luck:)

Volvo 240DL sputters while driving


Not enough information here, but I would always replace the crank shaft position sensor first. Its at the rear of the engine, it senses grooves in the flywheel. Next I would check the fuel pump relay. Finally the Airflow meter.

Rotor replacing on a 240DL


The rotor has a very strong spring. just keep pulling. Be careful not to bend the shaft (I doubt that could happen). If you get a screwdriver or something to pry with, just try to force it straight up.

1998 Volvo S70 stalls intermittently


Have tried getting quality gasoline at a reliable station? It sounds like water in your fuel system. Add a couple bottles of Iso-Heet fuel system dryer everytime you fill up the next few times, and that should cure it.

91 volvo 240 - keeps stalling out, shakes a lot when idling


My 1990 240DL was doing the same thing and it turned out to be the fuel pressure regulator. It, unfortunatley, is a shop repair. $117 for the part and $150 for labor. It runs fine now.
