  1. Volvo Maintenance and Repairs
    Hello friends, I recently was given my first car, a 1989 240dl. A dream come true. I quickly learned that it had a giant rust hole beneath the driver's seatish area(see pics). I am almost done patching it up but here is the thing: I don't know how it began. Here's what I know: it is only on the...
  2. Volvo For Sale
    As a known Volvo sucker, ah, enthusiast, I took this project over for a widow friend who needs the money more than the car. It's still titled in her name, and I have the original purchase docs but only some of the maintenance history. Mostly serviced at The Volvo Store in Winter Park but they...

  4. Volvo 100 and 200 series
    My car has been stalling at low speeds or when idle, and sometimes not starting. My remedy is to push the accelerator upon starting and give it some gas for a minute, and this will get the car going.

  7. Volvo 100 and 200 series
    Hi, I've got a 92 240, w/ 112k miles on it, second hand cared for lovingly by a relative who died. It's run flawlessly for the year I've had it, and I really love it. However Ive had my 1st problem with her and want to try my hand at repairing it myself. Now, I started her up, ran an errand...
  8. Introduce yourself
    hey guys! My name is StevieB and i'm new to this forum and new to the Volvo's. But so far I love my '92 240 wagon! My roommates are fanatics, and they finally convinced me to buy one (one has a '78 242 gt, the other has a 240 wagon and a 940 race car). So far, other than a poor stereo install...
