Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a volvo 940 GLE estate car (93 reg) with an isussi trooper engine. This was fitted by a previous owner. Great car to own and drive. The clutch recently packed in and I'm having trouble identifying what the clutch cover is off. It's not isussi or volvo. The gearbox is volvo and the clutch friction plates are volvo. However, the clutch cover is stumping everyone.. The original coversion was carried out by a company in the Burnley area. The previous owner was able to tell me this but was unable to provide more specific information like an address or telephone number.. Can anyone help me? Cheers

    So if I phone Gumtree, they will be able to give me the name of the company? Seems a bit strange. Why can't you simply pass on the name of the company you think carried out the conversion and I can then telephone them direct tomorrow?

  • James McRae Feb 11, 2014

    Can I talk to you at this number?

  • James McRae Feb 11, 2014

    I would appear to be wasting my time here. How unfortunate. Not good at all....

  • Victor Feb 11, 2014

    Sorry james. I am out of country. did you contact the company regarding your problem?

  • Victor Feb 11, 2014

    Also, that is the name of the company who can resolve your issue at this time.

  • James McRae Feb 12, 2014

    There is no company name in your post. Just a phone number for Gumtree.. Maybe the lassie who answers the phone there will know eh? What a waste of time this has been..

Caution! Remove the ignition key.

Remove
the screw holding the engine stabilizer brace to the bracket on the engine
the screws holding the engine stabilizer brace to the suspension turrets
the engine stabilizer brace.

Applies only to B6xx4T engines:
Remove the plastic pipes between the turbocharger (TC) and charge air cooler (CAC) and between the air cleaner (ACL) and turbocharger (TC). Put them to one side. Remove the clamp from the intake manifold for the turbocharger (TC) for cylinders 1, 2 and 3. Turn the upper section of the pipe towards the firewall.

Relieve the load from the belt tensioner.
Remove the auxiliaries belt. See: Drive Belt\Service and Repair
Remove the upper timing belt cover.
Remove the front timing belt cover.
Lift up the servo reservoir and place it on top of the engine.Note! Ensure that the oil does not leak from the ventilation hole in the filler cap.

Seal the hose between the expansion tank and the radiator.
Disconnect the hose at the tank.
Lift up the expansion tank and place it on top of engine.

Raise the car. Remove
the right front wheel
the plastic nuts on the cover in the fender liner. Install the upper timing belt cover.
Turn the crankshaft clockwise until the markings on the crankshaft and camshaft pulleys correspond.
Turn the crankshaft a further 1/4 turn clockwise. Then turn back counter-clockwise until the markings correspond.
Remove the upper timing belt cover.

Remove the 4 vibration damper screws. Counterhold the crankshaft central nut.

Remove
the vibration damper
the auxiliaries belt
the belt cover behind the crankshaft pulley for the auxiliaries belt. Spray universal oil or similar around the rubber sleeve on the underside of the oil pump.

Remove the rubber sleeve.

Removing the timing belt

Slacken off the belt tensioner
Slacken off the center screw for the belt tensioner slightly.
Hold the center screw still.
Turn the tensioner eccentric counter-clockwise using a 6 mm Allen key.
Turn to 10 o'clock.
Unhook and remove the timing belt.Caution! Do not turn the camshafts or the crankshaft when the timing belt has been removed.


Checking the tensioner pulley and idler pulley Check bearing wear:
Spin the idler pulley and listen for noise. If replacing with a new idler pulley, tighten to 24 Nm .
Spin the tension pulley and listen for noise. When replacing, screw the tension pulley into place using the center screw.
Screw in the center screw by hand.
Ensure that the tensioner fork is centered over the cylinder block rib / bracket.
Ensure that the Allen hole on the eccentric is at "10 o'clock".

Installing the timing belt

Install the belt in the following order:
crankshaft
the idler pulley
intake cam
exhaust cam
water pump
tension pulley.Note! The variable valve timing unit on B6304S engines does not have a return spring. The unit is easily dislodged when reinstalling the timing belt.


Tensioning the timing belt

This adjustment is carried out on a cold engine. A suitable temperature is approximately 20°C / 68°F .
At higher temperatures (with the engine at operating temperature or a high outside temperature for example) the indicator is further to the right.
The illustration shows the position of the indicator when aligning the timing belt tensioner at different temperatures.
Carefully turn the crankshaft clockwise until the timing belt is tensioned. The belt must be in tension between the intake camshaft pulley, the idler pulley and the crankshaft.
Hold the belt tensioner center screw secure. Turn the belt tensioner eccentric clockwise until the tensioner indicator passes the marked position. Then turn the eccentric back so that the indicator reaches the marked position in the center of the window.
Hold the eccentric secure. Tighten the center screw to 25 Nm .
Check that the indicator is in the correct position.

Check

Press the belt to check that the indicator on the tensioner moves easily.
Install the upper timing belt cover. Turn the crankshaft 2 turns. Check that the markings on the crankshaft and camshaft pulley correspond.
Check that the indicator on the belt tensioner is within the marked area.

Finishing

Install the auxiliaries belt around the pulley on the crankshaft.
Install
the rubber sleeve on the underside of the oil pump
the vibration damper.
Use new screws.
Tighten to 35 Nm .
Angle-tighten 50°.
Use the crankshaft center nut as a counterhold
the plastic nuts for the cover in the right-hand fender liner
the right front wheel.

Lower the car.
the front timing belt cover. Tension the auxiliaries belt.
the expansion tank
the hose between the expansion tank and the radiator. Remove the lock grip pliers
the servo reservoir
the upper timing belt cover.

the engine stabilizer brace. Tighten to 50 Nm
the screw holding the engine stabilizer brace to the bracket on the engine. Tighten to 80 Nm .

Check and top up if required
coolant level
the servo fluid level. Test drive the engine.

Don't forget to rate the solution

thanks
good luck

Volvo 960 gle estate self leveling suspenstion 1995 model. car lying low onto wheel arch when not loaded


IF self leveling (gas struts) are faulty,when you come to a stop after driving for about 10 mins,the rear will not have risen to level.(still low).then they will need replacements fitted,they are not that expensive,compared to some air suspension types.(just in case im not clear,the rear pumps itself up AFTER moving off/driving and will settle when stopped for awhile after.)

Hi Richard,

Check the clutch fan. With the vehicle not running grab the fan and move it up and down. there should be a light resistance. If it is real loose or real tight the clutch may be going bad. (Some vehicles have electric fans so if yours has that disregard this suggestion.)

I would replace the fuel pump relay, and the engine speed sensor. I would need more information to rule one or the other out, but at this mileage, neither part is terribly expensive, and both have been known to cause your same exact condition

940 1991 volvo estate


Your problem is fuel gauge is hanging up on the fuel pump. The slide bar/fuel sender is located inside the fuel tank alongside the fuel pump. Today I removed my fuel tank and replaced the pick up strainer on my fuel pump and previously my fuel gauge didn't work, but all I needed to do was slightly bend the slide mechanism and my fuel reading read correctly on my gauge. Previous to that I showed no reading on the dash meter.
