I have a light on my '93 Volvo 240 that comes on each time I use the brakes. The light is in the lower right corner and looks simething like an upside down light bulb.

This sounds like an information sign that lets you know your brake fluid level is low in master resesivoir. At a point were you push the brake pedal and drops the level ane sensor comes on. Sudden stop and go and on turn driving cane do this if level ids low.

How do you replace o2 sensor in volvo the way its a 96..and what do i need to do it?

an o2 sensor is near the catalytic. converter on the exhaust either right before it or right behind it. you can use a wrench, probably going to be larger than a 13-15mm wrench. they unscrew out of the exhaust tube and disconnect from a main line. take them out, and re connect the new ones. let me know how it works!

Engine swap 1985 240 DG into 1983 Volvo 245

Go ahead and swap the transmissions, and that should be about it. The b230 and b23 engines are basically the same block, so there should be no trouble there.

Check engine light - 240 enfgine running rich

It could be a number of things but must be diagnosed via computer code check. If you are unable to do so yourself, find a reputable Volvo mechanic. It could be the air mass meter, a bad O2 sensor or something related. Mine turned out not to be the air meter but a bad ground wire going to it. Didn't find out until $400.00 later.

Correct flywheel installation '90 240 B230 w/5 SPD transmission

you should have index holes on the flywheel this is to keep the balance of the crankshaft of the motor. the sensor on the back is the knock sensor. your index hole on the flywheel should line up with the holes on the crank. in most instances they should only fit one way. also make sure you put the right side facing the engine. this is important other wise you won't be able to connect the trans and the starter won't match up right.....please rate..thanks
