Re: 940 Radiator question

Looks like you are going to be removing many AC parts. Not sure if the circled part is a radiator or an intercooler. Probably locate some used parts from a junkyard car so you can take it apart first so that you know how it comes apart. Then putting your car back together won't be such a mystery.

A single DIN aftermarket radio will fit that opening. The lower opening was used for a storage pocket. The wiring is easy when using a wiring diagram. You can use the radio console from a later 960 (1994+) to mount the OE Double DIN radio.

Did you adjust the shifter with the transmission and shifter both in Park? I think the proper way would be to do the shifter adjustment with both in neutral.

Re: coolant temp sensor location

Look down between intake manifold runners 3 and 4. You'll find the ECT. But the ECT has no connection to the temperature gauge. The temperature sender is closer to the front of the cylinder head under the intake. If your gauge is wonky check for a bad wiring connection at the sender.

Re: 1990 240 Wagon Fuel Problems

Seems that I've read somewhere about an ECU problem work around for a 240 that involved the fuel pumps.

Re: original radio wiring 85 240

Volvo 240 1985.pdf has your answer.

I think it would be easier to get a radio plug from a junkyard. Better yet, install a reliable aftermarket head unit. After looking at the wiring diagram this radio only powers front door speakers.

Re: 740 not starting after timing belt change

Confused as to why software would be required to sort out a cam timing belt issue. Not sure that expensive software would even be of use with your car. Your problem is directly related to the timing belt not being timed correctly.

Just scroll down the page to diagram of front strut parts. 740 is the same as 760 for front strut parts.

Re: Is this a fuel problem? 1984 Volvo 244 b23f m46

Just shade tree mechanic here....but I'd say if you had serious vacuum issue or low fuel pump pressures (pre or main) you would have issues all the time, not just at start up and warm up. At least some issues when you "go for a drive". Do these have an inline fuel pump check valve? If not, while si...

Re: 1989 240 Wagon Air conditioner

All of the A/C lines need to be inspected. My 1988 760 Turbo wagon had rusted out A/C parts under the front of the car. Never had working A/C in the more than 11 years of ownership. I ended up removing everything under the hood related to the A/C.

Re: Engine running rough

232 is fuel trim (lambda control) too lean or too rich at idle. If too rich, high fuel pressure or leaking injector.

Re: Intermittent Electrical Issues on Startup Topic is solved

Your 960 has an ignition interlock which connects to the shifter by a cable. It is called the Key Interlock System.
