Question about Volvo 240

1 Answer

My daughter's 1991 Volvo 240 randomly will shut off. Most typically at a stoplight. We just had it tuned up, thinking there may be an arc problem and that did not fix it. It runs beautifully otherwise. I drove it three days this week and it shut off on me twice. We have not been able to connect weather conditions to it either.

Try having the fuel filter replaced. If that does not correct the problem, then have the fuel pump tested and replace if needed.

Where is rollover switch on 1991 240 volvo station wagon


I don't think there is a rollover switch on a '91 wagon.
The ECU supplies ground to the fuel pump relay for only about a second and a half if there is no ignition pulse. This is what shuts off the fuel pump in the event of an accident. The transistor in the ECU that provides this ground signal fails after a couple of decades. Repairing it is not a do-it-yourself operation but there are rebuilt ECUs available from multiple sources. Be sure to get an ECU that is compatible with your vehicle configuration.

Acts like it isn't getting fuel or is misfiring... started suddenly according to my daughter


First check that the timing is set propperly, that all ignition wires are in good shape(not arcing) and connected properly, distributor cap not cracked, fuel pressure, air mass and or oxygen sensors are ok. The last two may have to be done by a pro depending on your experience.

No spark at plugs on my 1991 volvo 240


Did you replace the plugs? How hot is the spark from the coil thin and blue? if it is big and orange it is a weak coil and should be replaced. If it is good try an other wire from a different car (do not put a spark plug in it) and see what the spark looks like if good put the plug in it and check the spark again if this is a good the wires are bad
