Question about 1985 Volvo 740
Volvo 85 740 GLE Non-turbo starts fine, but stalls when put in gear or push down on accelerator. Fuel pumps, filter, pressure regulator are all new AND test okay. Throttle switch is rigged correctly, but do not know if is okay. Please advise.
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.
