SOURCE: 1995 volvo 960 AC problem

Car has vaccuum leak(s). If you remove the panel under drivers foot area, look to the center area. You will see some vacuum chambers with different color vacuum lines running to them. the yellow one is faulty 80% of the time. Carefully remove it and plug the line itself. you dont need to plug the chamber. this should fix problem, and you wont notice any function lost on climate system.

SOURCE: the 1990 240 volvo isn't getting any spark.

could be the egnition coil, remove the wire from the distributor and put it close to a piece of sheet metal and turn ignition, without holding the metal of course, and if there is a good spark it's o.k. but if the spark is weak then it could be your problem. might need a new coil. the coil wire is the one in the middle of the distributor.

SOURCE: 1990 volvo 740 wagon shuts off while driving

sounds like you have a computer glitch. i would take it to any auto shop and pay 50 bucks so they can take a look at your e.c.u. (engine control unit) we had a similar problem a few years ago with our 1990 volvo 740 gle 2.3l station wagon. it was a glitch with the computer. got a mixed signal with the mass air flow sensor.

SOURCE: starting a 1984 240 DL Volvo wagon after sitting in a garage for 5 years

Replace engine oil and filter, air filter and fuel filter.
Drain the fuel tank and add fresh fuel.
Remove the spark plugs and put a squirt of oil in each cylinder. Remove coil lead and crank engine until oil pressure comes up.(light goes out),
replace coil lead and start engine.. it will blow smoke for first few minutes. Check trans fluid, brake fluid etc before driving. Theres a good chance the brakes will need an overhaul.

sounds as though you have a bad alternator or a loose alternator belt and the battery is not being charged. while the car is running - check the voltage from the alternator and make sure it is about 13.4 volts DC.

How do i replace air flow meter on 1992 volvo 240 wagon. It stalls at low speed, intermittently.


It is a can shaped air flow sensro, in the plastic intake hose. To replace it all you have to do is pull the electrical connector, unscrew the clamps on the line on both sides, and switch out the sensor. Make sure you have the correct sensor, there were 3 different types used.

How to bypass the A/C clutch-compressor and drive the power steer


It can be done. But, its alot of work and you will need a new bracket for the PS pump. As bad as it sounds, it will be much easier and cheaper if you just replace the AC clutch or compressor. Try to find a used one at a junckyard. Its a very silly design.

My volvo 240 DL Station Wagon (a 1987) idles high, and there is a frequent delay in acceleration when I press the gas. These issues MAY be unrelated to one another, as my car has well over 200k miles on...


I tink you have to replace the catalyst for better acceleration probably is blocking the combustion that's what you loosing power, I have 240 wagon 92 and i just did it. my 184k miles good luck.

1990 240 volvo idle problems


I just had a similar problem with my 1990 240DL and it turned out to be the fuel pressure regulator located on the forward part of the fuel rail in the engine compartment in conjunction with the mas air flow meter. Both were repalced and now the engine idles normally.

White smoke from air vents


Could be an incorrect refrigerant charge or defective pressure switch causing the evaporator to freeze and the air flow over it is causing the ice to melt and the resulting white smoke is condensation
