Re: 1993 Volvo 240 not run in two (2) years!

Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site. Your car should have the On Board Diagnostic (OBD) Unit in the engine compartment. Look at the top of this forum and click on "RWD Major Topics (repairs, parts, common problems)". Then go to "How to use the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) unit" for full instructions on its...

Re: 1993 940 Cylinder head has some plugged holes?

Quite normal. That head could be used for different engines and need the closed holes open and the open holes closed. Depending on its use depends which holes are drilled out. the rest of the caked up carbon I already scraped and chiseled away in other areas of the head. I do hope you didn't use a c...

Re: 1998 S90 Oil drip from rear of the engine

Where exactly is the oil coming from? On my 960 I had a similar problem but before I started throwing money at it I did a very thorough examination and found that the head gasket was leaking oil out of the engine. No trace of oil in the coolant. The oil only came out on hard acceleration, especially...

Re: 1993 940 Head Gasket bolts, reusable or no?

The head bolts can be re-used up to 5 times if they are not stretched. One very important point with Volvo heads is to check them for height and warpage whenever they are removed. This is best done by a machine shop with the correct tools. The head height must be at least 5.752" (146.1mm). If it is ...

Re: Idle is Low, and lf need to adjust the idle

The idle on the 740 with the Jetronic LH 2.4 is not adjustable. It is computer controlled. Low idle is usually caused by a dirty throttle body, a thing that is always overlooked until it causes a problem. I am curious as to how your dad did reduce the idle speed. One possibility is that he adjusted ...

Re: 740 GLE ECM numbers that cross ref. with Bosch

Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site.

The Bosch part number for the '90 740 without EGR is 0 280 000-561. Known substitutes are 0 280 000-933, 0 280 000-935 and 0 280 000-951.

The 561 is for cars equipped with a cold start valve. The 933 and 951 eliminated the cold start valve circuit.

Re: Charging question

Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site. That is how the alternator is earthed (grounded), although I can't recall the exact location, the idle speed bracket does not seem familiar. However, if the wire is getting hot it is either not strong enough or it is failing. I would replace it with something heavier...

Re: What seats are interchangeable on 1984 244 Volvo

Any 240 4 door 1978 to 1993.

Many of the 240 parts are interchangeable over different years. Body panels are a good example although not as flexible as the seats.
