How to replace wiper motor on a volvo 740 turbo 1990

The wiper motor is underneath the metal bonnet in between the wiper arms (the piece that looks like an air scoop) the comes out hard through prying and sometimes there are 4 screws that hold it in. Inside the engine bay. When prying the bonnet off start from the drivers side top and work your way across the top. Then once that is off then it is only 2 10 or 12 mm bolts. and a plug and that's it.

Hi when I try to start the car it will try to start but will not stay running for more than a seccond or two. I can also smell fuel like it is flooded. I got a new temp suncor dor the computer but I am...

Hello, My name is Dan. I am not a mechanic. However, I've owned 2 of the same Volvo's. While I don't know right now where the temp sensor is located, I will share a previous experience (cheap repair) of mine. Sometimes, you can get a pin hole or other leak in the hose from the gas cap to the tank. This will cause the fuel smell & to loose pressure in the system. Also, anywhere else along the fuel system is susceptible to leakage. Check wherever there are clamps.

'90 Volvo 740 2.3l turbo water pump install instructons needed

Go to an auto supply store like PEP boys or Advance Auto, etc., and buy a Haynes Repair Manual for the 740. You may be able to consult one at your local library for free. Even if it doesn't cover your model year, the replacement instructions are pretty much the same for all years. in fact even a 240 Volvo manual would be essentially the same. Pay particular attention to the installation have to slide the pump on, and then rotate it a few degrees clockwise to make the upper o-ring seal. Good luck!
