Volvo 240 stalls unless giving it gas


Check the rpm in neutral should be around 800-850, this should drop to 500-550 in drive or reverse.

I have a 92 Volvo 240 with automatic transmission. The gear gets stuck when shift to park. I now park on neutral with the emergency brakes on. My mileage odometer is also not working anymore. Is it...


There is a fault with the automatic transmission and hence the lever gets struck with the park because when the car is started the idling governors are holding on the gear notch not allowingit to be shifted.
So if your can continue to park in neutral witth emegency brakes as in the case of manual transmission it is alright.
However whether to replace the odometer depends on your preliminary examination of the unit. Remove and check out if there is any visible damage beffore deciding to replace.However you will need help from Volvo service for the part and so while they remove it can be checked for minor repair before replacing.

level surface, vehicle transmission hot, selector in park, vehicle not running---check dipstick level to be within hash mark lines. Look for orange/red color, and smell dipstick to ascertain a "burnt" odor.

If color is not orangew/red, fluid smells "burnt", and level is low, BE$ CAREFUL!

I have a 1995 Volvo 960 Sedan won't start


Try shifting the transmission to neutral and try starting the engine, if it starts, the gear position sensor is bad, which is very common on this car.
Or, the starter may be bad, not common, but possible!

Try the vaccume control module on the transmission. That is the likely culprit.
