1990 240 volvo,no brake lights and rain makes it hard to start


The tail light assemblies were a bad design in these cars. You need to take each socket out, and clean the contact points on them. Make sure they have a secure connection, and they haven't caused the bulbs to blow out.

The ignition module is located on the inner fender on the drivers side. I would check it to see if it is getting wet. It will cause the engine to not start.

WILL NOT START ALL THE TIME


Had the exact same problem with my 240 wagon. There is a temperature sensor up near the manifold on the drivers side of the engine. This is not the temp sensor that feeds the dash gauge, but one that tells the engine control module whether you are starting hot or cold. Mine was cracked, so the engine computer would get a cold start signal even after the engine ran warm, and would flood. This can be a difficult problem to diagnose and an expensive one when mechanics start swapping parts. You cannot see this sensor, but you can feel it (when the block is cold, please) right under the exhaust manifiold. A replacement is about $80 plus labor. Even my very experienced Volvo mechanic overlooked it. But the car would start and run fine, then leave me stuck when I tried to restart it. After calling AAA for a tow, the temp sensor would reset, then the car would start normally. Cheers. The 240 is a great car - I ran mine up to 235,000 miles; now I have a 740 with the same engine.

91 volvo 240 - keeps stalling out, shakes a lot when idling


My 1990 240DL was doing the same thing and it turned out to be the fuel pressure regulator. It, unfortunatley, is a shop repair. $117 for the part and $150 for labor. It runs fine now.
