Question about 1991 Volvo 240

1 Answer

1991 240 gl not starting.

My car would not start one day after filling up at a gas station, when i turn the key i can hear some sort of click, perhaps a spark, but the car isnt turning over at all. the car had been stalling sometimes at intersections for awhile now, but would immediately start up again. i checked the battery charge and it is fine. can i hopefully get anyone to give me some directions as to what i should check now? thank you.

Sounds like a starter problem. Check that the connections at battery and starter are secure and free of corrotion. You can also try tapping on the starter while the ignition swith is being turned to the start position. If that works replace starter. The stalling can be caused by a number of problems: idle too low, fuel pump pressure to low, air mass and or oxygen sensor malfuctioning. A process of elimination.

2004 dodge durango started fine then i went to the gas station tried to start it and it wouldn't it wanted to start


If the engine cranks over and does not run, you need to decide if it is a fuel problem or an electrical problem.
If when you turn the key you hear a click, you probably have an open in the starter.

Filled tank with gas and now my van wont run well or even start sometimes


If this happened right after the fill up then perhaps you put in the wrong octane or perhaps deisel... Some gas stations have older tanks which can be filled with water. Change your fuel filter and also confirm that the fuel pump is up to par and not failing.

Car will not start after gas.


Deposits build up in the gas tank over time due to poor quality gas. When you fill your tank, you stir up those deposits and causes them to get stuck in the fuel filter causing low gas pressure. I recommend driving until you hit empty and drain the rest of the gas out of your gas tank, then replace the fuel filter. Of course buy a gas can that will hold enough gas to get you to a gas station so you can fill your ca. when you get to the gas station add some gas treatment to the tank and fill it. The treatment will clear out any deposits that might be in the fuel lines between the gas tank and the filter. Fuel filter have replacement intervals just like oil and if you dont keep up on those, it comes back at you.

Stalling (The best I could think of to describe my issue)


Hello tirckydad_4: If this problem begun, immediately after filling your gas tank, my first guess based on your description would be that you bought some bad gas. Try adding some fuel cleaner to your tank. This should help, but the only way to get rid of the bad gas is to use it, or siphon it out and put some gas in from a different gas station. As a tip, try to avoid filling up when you see a fuel tanker re-filling the tanks at the gas stations. Theory goes, then when the fuel tanker is re-filling, the gas station fuel tanks, it is sirring up old sediment that usually has settled at the bottom of the tank. Sediment that has been pumped into cars can cause cars to run sluggish.
