My volvo 240 DL Station Wagon (a 1987) idles high, and there is a frequent delay in acceleration when I press the gas. These issues MAY be unrelated to one another, as my car has well over 200k miles on it...

1987 Volvo 240 DL wagon temp gauge will rise and drop frequently, doesn't overheat. I'm replacing the thermostat, is there something else I should consider?


This condition can be the thermostat or a leak in the system that causes air to enter. I suggest a T-stat and a new radiator cap as both can cause this.

How Do I change the clutch on a 1986 240 Volvo station wagon?


You do not need a simple "solution" from an online forum. What you need is detailed service information. I would recommend spending the small fee (under $30/year) and subscribing to the service information for your vehicle at alldatadiy.com. There. you will find step-by-step instructions along with diagrams and lists of any special tools needed to complete the task.

My 1987 240 dl volvo wagon Engine turns over but wont start. Not sure if it could be bad fuel pump. Any suggestions much appreciated


It's possible that it's the fuel pump relay, bad computers or a host of other causes. The first thing I would do is to check fuses #'s 4 and 6. Rotate them in the holder as sometimes they get corrosion on them that hinders good contact.
You can put in a jumper wire from 4 to 6 and that should turn the pumps on and you can then start the car if the relay was the problem. Don't drive around like this as the pump will be on all of the time and it's not safe to have them in this state in case of an accident.

I was wondering where the fuel filter is located in a 1989 Volvo 240 DL station wagon


Check the left front fender area under the hood. If it is not there, it will be located under the car, right wheel area.
