Question about 1984 Volvo 240 Series
Starts finer when is cooled down......but one trip to the store around the corner and it dies on me....is it possibly a fuel filter...and is that easy to change
I have had simular problems It took about a year to find.
What I found is as these volvos get old you start to run into electrical problem such as the plastic insulation begins to go stiff & hard. What happens is the wire in hot areas in engine bay develop cracks in the insulations & the copper wire gets contaminated & breaks. The wire looks perfect but under load or movement you run into intermittent faults.
How do you find the fault!!
Well wiggle the wiring loom in the engine bay very carefully while engine is running & look for stiff & damaged wires.
If your very keen its a very big job from the grey multiway connector on the fire wall just above & behind the engine replace all the suspect wires down to the engine. Not recomended unless your confident & you have a copy of the wiring loom.
