Probably when the exhaust fell it either broke the wire or sensor to the transmission look around the transmission to see. All sensors should at least have two wires to the plug that plugs into them

Have the spark plugs and wires been changed? If yes then are the spark plug wires routed and loomed up correctly? If not check for exhaust damaged wires.

Fuel injection Relay! These things fail more when it is warm out (during the summer etc). It is a large relay located under the hood inside the fuse box. It is about the size of 2 relays put together. It is either red or green. When it gets hot out, the relay swells up an separates and causes the car to stall out intermittently.

I have a 1991 Volvo 740 w/an automatic transmission.A couple of months ago the overdrive indicator ( red arrow ) started to turn on and it doesn't turn off when I press the button. When I drive, it seems...


It may be a faulty relay - usually behind the radio - it makes a clicking sound when you hit the button on the shift lever. Or it may be the overdrive solinoid which is mounted on the top of the tranny. Check all of your connestions first. One other thing - the wire from the shift lever overdrive button to the overdrive solenoid on the tranny may run over the top of the drive shaft - check for wear
