Question about 1989 Volvo 740

Open Question

I have a 1991 volvo 740. It stalls on me while i am driving. I put it in park and wait for about 2 minutes and it starts back up. Sometimes it will only do this once and other times it will do it 4 or 5 times. Each time I wait no longer than 4 minutes and it will start and go.

SOURCE: I have a 88 volvo 740 GLE and it wont fire.

The problem wont be your timing belt. you need to take out a spark plug plug it into your HT lead and check for a strong spark or even if there is a spark. check your contact breakers on the distributor as well

Volvo 740 1991 stall


I own a 1992 740 and have been through the stalling issue. Tried everything mentioned in other suggestions. Expensive and aggravating. Finally turned out to be the spark module. My Volvo has the Rex/Regina engine management system and the module sits on the left front fender. The wire to the distributor is very long and runs to the bottom of the distributor. As a start I would check and clean all wires leading to and from the coil module. Sometimes the high voltage lead gets dirty or corroded. Remove each connector plug (one at a time) spray a little contact cleaner, re-insert it a couple of times. Sometimes just turning the high voltage lead will clean it a little.
Also check to be sure the manifold pressure module is properly connected. It has a thin vacuum hose running from the module (on the driver's side inner fender near the firewall) to the top of the intake manifold. If that hose is loose or disconnected, car will run rough and stall.

Driving my 91 volvo 740 and it will stall then wait acouple of min. starts right up why


In my experience this has been one of two things. The first and most common is a faulty fuel pump relay. (located above the fuse panel behind the ashtray) or a short somewhere in the coil/ignition system.
