Question about 1985 Volvo 740

1 Answer

I was driving my 1985 volvo down the street, I came to a red light and suddenly the engine just cuts, it won't start, the engine turns over and it tries sooo hard to start, it's almost as if the engine isn't getting gas. It's not that my tank is empty, that I'm out of oil, that my battery is dead, Could it be the ignition relay?

No, not if it tries to start. maybe crank sensor, maybe fuel pump relay. Listen for fuel pump and check for spark. See my tips posted here and let me know if you have questions: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines

98/88 delta oldsmoble cuts off while driving what could it be


The warning lights on the dash will come on when the engine dies.
If it dies and starts up like you turned the key it could be a relay or other electrical problem. May be tough to find if you can't test components while it is not starting.
I assume the check engine light is not on when the engine is running.

Volvo 1998 S70 headlight and indicators won't always turn on


I have had this happen before - this is the multifunction switch on the steering column. The one on my Ford took about 10 minutes to change (two bolts). My problem - I would turn my lights off, then turn them back on and nothing, then they would suddenly pop on. after a bit my lights would not come on at all. I had to drive with my Flash to Pass lights for a couple of days when driving at night.

I hope this helps!

Not to scare or offend you but it could be many many things. It does help that the check engine light is on, though.
If you can go to a place like Autozone, where they check your check engine light for free, and post what the code was, I can give you a place to start.
I do not mind helping you further with a proper diagnosis procedure either, if you can share your vehicle information.

Sounds like a MAF(Mass air flow sensor, you can start by pulling it out, it's inside the intake box on this car. You can clean it with a high percentage isopropl alcohal or MAF cleaner, this sounds to be the problem, if it is really bad, you can unplug it temporarily, it will not have as much power but it will run better. If cleaning it doesn't fix it, then you will need to replace it, ensure not to touch the sensor itself at all.
