It could be the belts, did you replace them? Does it drive at all..could be the timing belt.

Radiator support repair Pontiac Montana


A rusted away rad support must be a common problem on the Montana. It's where all the salt collects. On ours the rad was just hanging from the driver's side and the air deflector with the remains of the rad support above it almost dragging the ground on the passenger side. The locating pin on top of the rad on the passenger side was about an inch below the rubber grommet it was supposed to be inside. I drilled a hole in the fan support near the base of this pin and wired the whole thing up to the engine compartment brace above it. I also suspended the air deflector at the centre up to the hood safety latch bracket and screwed the passenger end of the deflector to some unrusted metal I found. This 10-year old Minivan was rustier than a 20+ year old Volvo I have. I though only Fords rusted that fast.

Trans code number automatic tranny 88 volvo


Hello. i have owned many 740's, 240's, 122's, and 850's. I have done my fair share of transmission swaps. The transmission tag is located right above the trans-oil pan and directly below the od seloind on the drivers-side. if your volvo 740 is a non-turbo, the transmission is AW-70L, if it is a turbo-model then it is AW-71L. Good luck :)

I HAVE A 86 740 INTERCOOLED WAGON AND THE TRANNY SHIFTS REALLY HARD FROM 1 TO 2 ALL THE TIME I AM MECHANIC JUST NOT TO MUCH ON VOLVO'S IS THIS SOMETHING I CAN FIX, ADJUST OR SOMETHING OR IS THE TRANNY...


hi chris, this is one of the first fuzzy logic auto boxes to be fitted to a european car,followed by vw(zf make them,as do borg warner)
try this, just to make yourself aware of whats happening,without touching the gas,put the car in drive and let it accelerate itself ,right upto top gear,stop, then using 1/3 pedal,do the same,stop, then floor it,you will feel the differances right away,(the car will try to make you drive more smoothly,saving gas).other than checking fluid level,
every 6k,the only fix,if needed, is a rebuild.
but,if you know why it baulks in 2nd,(big drop in revs,between 1st and 2nd),you will feel better.
this is not in any handbooks.
regards
geoff

'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 instructions....you have to slide the pump on, and then rotate it a few degrees clockwise to make the upper o-ring seal. Good luck!
