Question about 1987 Volvo 240
Our volvo stooped running in the middle of a intersection yesterday . Not sure why. It has gas, I feel like the gas isn't getting to the engine? I thought that maybe the cold weather had some thing to do with it. The battery is fine.
It sounds like the most likely problem you are having is that one or both of your fuel pumps is worn, and needs replacing. There is one in the tank, which supplies fuel, and one hanging underneath the vehicle (rear drivers side) in a braket near the differential, which pressurizes the fuel system. Have a shop diagnose these before replacement. Also, make sure that the fuel filter is replaced, and check the fuel pressure regulator vacuum hose for looseness or damage.

If you have an older model you may be in luck. On the driver's side fender wall is a 25 amp fuse. This connects to the fuel pump. This connection is ofter corroded. Sometimes you just replace this fuse and your day gets brighter as your Volvo 240 hums back to life. Good luck. Hope that helps.

Try replacing the fuel pump sensor, its right under the glove compartment and it has this number on it: (3523608) it also has a manufacturer's date, and if its over ten years old, it should be replaced. try it, it worked on my volvo. Hope it works on yours!

Check your fuses by on the drivers side clean the fuses up and verify that they are good before you bring it in and waste money sometimes its the simple things to check first.
