Had same problrm with 88 240. Turned out I have bad wiring to main fuel pump. It's a simple check. Crank the engine then turn off before it stalls. Put on some goggles, put out your cigarette, and carefully crack loose the gas line fitting at the fuel rail (17mm & 14mm wrenches). Gas shouls come flying out under high pressure. It seems the tank pump provides enough pressure to idle the engine. If the gas is not flying out like mad check to make sure you have voltage to and through the main fuel pump.

It is not adjustable, it is computer controlled. Clean the throttle valve and that should help./

I have problems when I shift from 2 to 3. It make a metal sound just when I shall put it in the 3 gear. The rest of the gears are ok. The Volvo is a 850 GLE 2.5 l 288 000 km.


It sounds like you have a worn syncroniser gear.
You may be able to double clutch between 2 and 3 to get a gring free gear change.
A reoair would require a tranmission d removal and repair.

How to double clutch
push clutch to remove from 2 and stop in neutral-let the clutch out while in neutral.
Wait a second, then push in the clutch and put in 3 and let the clutch out.

This is how transmissions in old trucks without syncronisers are shifted.

Hope this helps

Flashing upside down arrow/ slow acceleration


This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.

1) Turn off Engine
2) Turn key to "On" position (Not start the engine), you will see the panel light will on
3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.

Hope this tick help
Good luck

1988 volvo 740 gle non-turbo loud fuel pump


Have you tried replacing the fuel filter? It is located under the cars center on the left side ..

You will find it alongside the main high pressure fuel pump on a metal support plate held up with 3 bolts.
Remove the 3 bolts with a 10mm socket wrench to lower the plate. Place a catch pan below the filter to catch any leaking fuel.
Be careful not to get fuel in you eyes or running down your arms. Remove the 2 bolts holding the banjo fuel pipe connections to the filter.
Note the direction of the filter.
Loosen the clamp holding the filter to the support plate and slide out the old filter.
Install the new filter in the same direction as the old one and use new copper sealing washers on the banjo connections.
