1991 Volvo 740 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1991 Volvo 740

Engine stalling/stumbling problems can be caused by a failing mass airflow sensor.

A faulty RPM sensor can cause the Check Engine Light to come on and cause a "No Start" condition.

Delayed and/or erratic shifting can be caused by the transmission kick-down cable sticking. Since the oil pan has to be removed to replace the cable, have the shop replace the transmission filter at the same time

have 331,000 miles still a great car

Only have 270K miles on ours. We have had since 1991 and it is a tank. Only problems have been auxillary items, such as antenna, power window buttons, power locks, radio, blower motor, A/C. The powertrain is bulletproof. Still put in 5 quarts of oil and 5K miles later drain out 5 qts of oil.
