Question about 1989 Volvo 740

1 Answer

No speedometer, gas gauge, temperature gauge, and

I just bought a 1989 Volvo GL. I like the car, but the speedometer, gas gauge, and temperature gauge are not working (tachometer is fine), and the car will not shift into 4th gear. Are any of these problems related? Would I be capable of fixing any of these things myself?

Either you have a blown fuse, or the ground connection for your dash gauge cluster is corroded or broken.

Gas in oil


Generally speaking, there are two ways for gas to get into the engine oil.
A leaking fuel injector, or a faulty fuel pressure regulator.

Your sending unit in the tank is bad and needs to be replaced. There is a short in it. That is the only thing that can go wrong with it. There is probley a broken wire on it so it wont read right.

My temperature gauge and my fuel gauge arent working and the fuse is is good .... also how hard is it to replace the speedometer cable ?


On replacing the speedometer cable, on a scale of 1 to 10, probably 3 or 4.
Hooking to the transmission, " baby play ", connecting the other end to the speedometer, well that represents the 4.

Seems like when car is hot it 1990 740 GL won't start. Morning and evening yes. Have changed to new battery cleaned all connections etc. Is there a realy or switch that is heat realted


Check the connectors to the temperaure sensor, I think it has been crossed with the knock sensor. I had an earlier model volvo with same problem it was like that since I bought it. I found out somebody crossed the temperature sensor with the knock sensor. It took me a while to figure it out. I had to use an schematic diagram.

1989 volvo gl 740 speedometer and odometer


Your problem is NOT a fuse. The speedometer receives an electronic signal from an analogue transmitter mounted in the rear differential. It's the little button in the rear diff with two wires attached to it. Check to see if the wiring is chaffed or broken. If not, then it's probably the transmitter. A competent mechanic should be able to replace one for less than 200.00, parts and labor. If this does not fix it, then the problem is in the head, which can be expensive. You might get a used head if you can get a 90 day guarrantee on the part from the salvage company.

Good Luck!
