You may want to check your fuses. there is one under the hood on drivers side. 25A blade. it will be located bye the fenderwell. it may be corroded or oxidized. clean it with sandpaper and place it back in. other then that the two other things may be your fuel pump relay. check it out by removing the plastic cover and check to see if anything looks burnt. if so it needs to be replaced. (its under the glovebox by the firewall) or your fuses on the interior drivers side ( it think it may be #6 or #4) may need to replace.

My 1989 Volvo DL starts and works well some time but then I go to and it will not start.

Check fuel pump relay behind the grove box. Had a similar issue and is an easy change. Brought mine new for ~$16.00 on ebay.

Hope this helps

What size battery does my 1989 volvo 240 DL take? I need to replace it and cannot research the cost until I know what size

Just call a couple parts stores and get prices, the cheapest battery is rarely the best deal and they can dispose of the old one for you. They will know what size you need. Also if you have a warranty need in the future they are open seven days a week.

Smoke, won't start

Black smoke means too much unburnt fuel, blue smoke is burning oil.

Volvo 89 dl 240 headlights

If the dash lights go on when you turn the key to the on position then turn it to the start position the dash lights should go off. If this does not happen, your ignition switch may be bad.
