740 Turbo 2.3L


It hurts some of the posted complaints. I am not a I fixed and solved all of the stalling that I had on my Volvo.

I have one For stalling issues, if the mechanic replacing anything that is not to electrical of fuel supply RUN. he is wasting your $s. is ether a fuel delivery or it is an problem. First step is to try to which. identifying this may be a challenge on intermittent problems.

Any car that is 20 years old, an owner that can fix at least the things. I have

150K on my brick and it is running real I did have several stalling or issues along the way, I give brief description and a the that worked for me. All of these intermittent problems, so they not readily identifiable:

1/ EXTREMELE or very rough idling to the of loosing oil. [ this was an easy one to solve] FIX: vacuum leak: it is in the intake that cracked [ you may actualy the hiss if the leak is BIG ], or you have a vacuum hose.

2/ Starts and runs fine, after 1/2 hour +/- it will After a few minutes it runs and stalls – intermittent and annoying. FIX: Replace the that controls the gas pump. [

$20 behind the ashtray under the ].

3/ After sitting over it starts fine and runs for 5 to 20 minutes, then suddenly After 4 or 5 minutes it starts and well for the rest of the day. OR, in the it cranks and does not start. 5 or 10 minutes, it will start and run for the rest of the day.

FIX: Ignition coil to have an internal short. it.

4/ Idle is varrying up and down and driving you may feel some on how much power you have, if you are down a hill, you will feel variation on the breaking by the FIX: 1/ Open up and clean the Control Valve: When you it, you will likely see a bunch of oil in the interferring with its operation. is a Bosch product, it is well and can be opened up and cleaned several before you kill it from it.

FIX 2/ The MAF sensor may need an adjustment, is best done in a shop can monitor you exhaust mix, to that your mixture is and that you do not mess up you polution settings – this is kind of unlikely. IN A PINCH you can get it by: After you drive the car so it is fully up, chock the wheels, put in drive, put on the brake so the car is SAFELY STOPPED AND NOT TAKE OFF ON YOU.

Using a good grade adjust the MAF for the engine to have the RMP and smooth idle. You will see and the smoothnes of the idle, however you NOT be able to get the slowest RPM by listening.

advice: If the distributor cover, and have more then 70k replace them, this may help with idle If you are replacing the distributor cover, the rotor, the ignition wires and plugs at the same time. I the Bosch+4 spark plugs, you feel extra power and get a mileage! If you have a Turbo the Boch+4 plug is not recomended, I use it, I had no problems with it and it works better then the other – I tried them [ Just tell the guy at the counter you have a GLE model when you are the plugs.]

I can imagine that lot of the advice may apply to any car. However my is withe the Volvo 740 Turbo and GLE

Good luck.
