When preparing for trailer hauling, observe the following: Use a trailer hitch which meets Federal Safely Standards for rear end collisions (FMVSS 301-75). For trailer weights exceeding 2,000 lbs (908 kgs) use only a trailer hitch offered as Genuine Volvo Accessory.

Page 62

Disengage the overdrive ( Avoid overload and other abusive operation. Hauling a trailer affects handling, durability and economy. A trailer air dam (Volvo accessory) will often improve mileage.

It is necessary to balance trailer brakes with the towing vehicle brakes to provide a safe stop (check and observe State/Local regulations).

Page 63

Before a long distance trip It is always worthwhile to have your car checked at a Volvo dealer before driving long distances. Your Dealer will also be able to supply you with bulbs, fuses, spark plugs and wiper blades for your use in the event that problems occur.

1985 Volvo 740 GL, GLE, Turbo pg. 91 Engine Oil Checking the oil level The oil level should be checked each time you refuel. Be sure the oil level is maintained between the upper and lower marks on the dipstick.

Low oil level can cause internal damage to the engine and overfilling can result in high oil consumption.

Page 102

1985 Volvo 740 GL, GLE, Turbo WARNING! The oil may be very hot. To add or change engine oil Add oil of the same kind as already used. Capacity: 4.0 US qts = 3.85 liters incl. oil filter.

After an oil change, the oil level will lie between the two marks on the dipstick i.e. between MAX and MIN.

Page 103

Synthetic or semisynthetic oils may be used if their specifications comply with the oil quality requirements. Volvo does not recommend additional oil additives, as they can adversely affect the engine. Changing oil and oil filter Oil and oil filter are first changed at the 600-1,200 mile (1,000-2,000 km) service.

Thereafter, changes.

Check hoses and connections on distributor vacuum unit, connections on heater control servo systems and hydraulic brake servo. Checking and adjusting idle speed Your Volvo is equipped with an electronically-controlled idle speed system that requires no checking or adjustment. Fuel system cap, tank and lines, and connections The effectiveness of the fuel system to contain hydrocarbons is dependent largely on a leak-free system.

12 Intercooler LH Jetronic 2.2 fuel system The B230F engine (740 GL, GLE) and the B230F-Turbo engine (740 Turbo) both have the same type of fuel-injection system. The LH Jetronic 2.2 fuel injection system is all-electronic and is microprocessor-controlled. It can continually compensate for variations in engine load, speed and temperature to give the best economy and power.

Page 106

1985 Volvo 740 GL, GLE, Turbo This is an emission control system designed to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy. An oxygen sensor monitors the composition of the exhaust gases leaving the engine. The exhaust gas analysis is fed into an electronic unit which continually influences the a frequency valve.

This adjusts the air-fuel ratio to provide optimum conditions for combustion and efficient reduction of the three major pollutants (hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrous gases) by a 3-way catalytic converter.

1985 Volvo 740 GL, GLE, Turbo The Intercooler Boost System The B230F-Turbo engine with the Intercooler Boost System employs a turbo-compressor to force air into the engine inlet manifold and the Intercooler Boost System to cool the compressed inlet air. The resulting increase in air flow raises pressure in the intake manifold by approx.

1985 Volvo 740 GL, GLE, Turbo Crankcase ventilation The engines equipped with positive crankcase ventilation which prevents crankcase gases from being released into the atmosphere. Instead, the crankcase gases are admitted to the intake manifold and cylinders. PCV system, 740 GLE (B230F engine) The PCV nipple in the intake manifold should be cleaned every 60,000 miles (100,000 km).

Page 109

1985 Volvo 740 GL, GLE, Turbo The spark plugs should be changed every 30,000 miles (50,000 km). However, city driving or fast highway driving may necessitate changing after 7,500 miles (12,500 km) of driving. When installing new plugs, be sure to fit the right type and use correct torque, see Specifications.

1985 Volvo 740 GL, GLE, Turbo Rear axle Capacity: 1.7 US qts (1.6 liters) Oil type: API GL-5(MIL-L-2105 B or C). Viscosity: SAE 90 or 80W/90. Replace: at 600-1,200 mile (1,000-2,000 km)service only.

The oil level should be up to the filler plug.

1985 Volvo 740 GL, GLE, Turbo CAUTION! Oil spilled on a hot exhaust pipe constitutes a fire risk. A Cold transmission: oil temperature +105#xB0;F (+40#xB0;C). This is a normal temperature for the transmission after idling for about 10 minutes.

At oil temperature below +105#xB0;F (+40#xB0;C), the level may be below the MIN mark.

Page 112

Check, without removing the cap, that the level is above the MIN mark of the fluid reservoir. Always entrust brake fluid changing to a Volvo dealer. Power steering fluid The fluid level should lie between the MIN and MAX marks on the dipstick (cool engine).
