Question about 1988 Volvo 740
Got a problem. My buddy bought this car couple days ago and I've been helping him get it going. It's a good running car but it has a problem with the power steering. Someone (i.e. the previous owner) has removed a fitting and possibly a section of line that connects to the drivers side control valve. I dont have any experience with these quirky little cars and would hate to just go ahead and assume it's just a return port. Oh, and by the way is this a metric pipe fitting? If so what size?
Go to am accredited steering specialist shop and they will have/make the right hose for you

Spray starting fluid in the intake manifold with the throat open. Then try to start. if it starts briefly then you have a fuel pump or fuel relay issue. If it does not start after spraying starter fluid then you have a spark issue. Check the ingnition stage module on the inner fender behind the air cleaner and/or swap the radio suppression relay on the radiator fluid reservior.

I'm presuming the B23 engine? Have you checked fuel pressure valve located on the inlet manifold, are your plugs getting soaked in fuel?
If not try looking at the Fuel relay in the block situated behind the ash tray below the Radio.
It might be easier for you to access this by taking out the coin tray, flip the cover plate off the cigar lighter it will reveal 2 screws, take that out and the tray then you'll see a whole lot more relays.
There are different types/colours I'm guessing your could be Blue but there are white ones too.Try Jiggling them carefully then crank the engine if it runs but poorly replace.
You must replace with correct one even if it is Blue some have Copper Lugs others steel and they are different.

the trans pan might just need a touch up on the bolts , cold weather will shrink the gasket a little bit , if you cant do it yourself , find someone thats handy to just touch up the bolts 1/4 to 1/2 turn on any that will move easly good luck

sounds like you have a computer glitch. i would take it to any auto shop and pay 50 bucks so they can take a look at your e.c.u. (engine control unit) we had a similar problem a few years ago with our 1990 volvo 740 gle 2.3l station wagon. it was a glitch with the computer. got a mixed signal with the mass air flow sensor.
