You can get either a Chilton's Repair manual or a Haynes Manual....here is a link to Chilton's manuals

You can also usually find a manual at your local auto parts store if they do not have it in stock they can order it for you.

I own a 1989 740GL.The engine is the standard "


Wait - you said it has no spark, and then started asking about fuel injector relays. I am confused.
When you crank the engine, do the spark plugs spark? If not, the most likely problem is the trigger mechanism. The '89 740 used a sensor in the bell housing detecting flywheel position. This car is about due for its third sensor as the insulation on those things tends to degrade and need replacement every decade or so. If you are still on your original sensor, you have been very lucky to make it this far.
Find the person with the smallest hands you can find to help you replace that sensor and be careful not to drop the bolt down in to the hole where the sensor comes out. Also, if the sensor is rusted in place, be patient. Don't break it off in the hole.
If you are not getting fuel, you will not hear the fuel pump spin up for a second when you turn the key to the on position. You should be able to bypass the fuel pump relay using a paperclip at the fuse box. Just find the fuel pump fuse and power it from an other fuse. If that spins up the fuel pump and starts the car, then you have to worry about finding the fuel pump relay. I can't help with that because I have never needed to find it on a 740.

I need to know where to jack up a 740GL Volvo and where to place the car stand to do an oil change.


Always jack a car by the frame. Also put the jack stands on the frame.

After driving around on a hot day, my 1989 Volvo 740GL will not start back up. The engine trys to turnover, however. The fluids do not over heat, but I have to wait until later in the day when it's cool to...


Sounds like it could be vapor locking. Especially if it starts after it gets cool. Try adding a can of octane booster to the fuel next time you fill up and see if that helps.
