Question about 1990 Volvo 240
Hey i got this problem with my volvo...it's been actin up recently the past few months by havin a tendency to sputter and choke out goin up hills pressin on the gas...eventually it just cuts off and when i start it, put it in drive, and as soon as i press the gas, it cuts off again....however when i put it reverse (after im havin problems with it cuttin off goin up a hill) it seems to be doin just fine...i've tried the other low gears to give them a try when i encounter this problem but yet again when i lightly press the gas it cuts off...it's strange though because in reverse when i press the gas it works fine...although now, i've gotten to the stage where it will not start at all, for instance when i try to crank it, it won't even try (kinda like its in gear but it's not)...any suggestions?
Have you tried changing your fuel filter,if so and it didn't help much-there's two fuel pump on the '90 240.ones under the car just about under rear passenger seat drivers-side(it's the rounder of the 2 that's there & has wires to it).the second is in the fuel tank.
Also check your fuses there's a fuse for both pumps(read the cover for fuse box(by the hood release lever.)Hopefully that will help you fix the problem.How's your air filter?spark plugs etc.(good tune-up does wonders!!!)
peace be with you yankeecatter
