1993 Volvo 940 Question: Gas Leak
My car has i gas leak, i think its coming from the front. My husband looked and said its kinda spraying out by the driver side tire. When i turn off the car the smell of gas is very strong. The check engine light has been on for a while. Is this kind of problem fixable? - ashley80
Get your Volvo 940 to a repair shop now! The fuel leak is a SEVERE fire hazard. Am am sure the problem is repairable. I would recommend you have a qualified technician pinpoint the cause of the leak, only then can an estimate be made for the cost of the repair. The check engine light may or may not be related to the fuel leak. - Oakman
If you go to the volvo dealer get ready to pay. I had a similiar issue my 1993 volvo 940 turbo idle was going up and down and my check engine light was on. I took the car to the dealer for a diagnostic to try and pinpoint the problem. It turn out I had a leak on the fuel line that was connected to the fuel pressure regulator. The regulator was also bad it was leaking fuel into the engine. The fuel also contaminated the oil. It cost me $400 to have the dealer fix the problem. If I had known I would have taken the time to fix it my self. They charged me $100 for diagnostic, $165 for the regulator and $26.00 for a piece of fuel line the rest was labor. I checked and the exact regulator cost $60.00 and the line cost a few dollars less than what they charge me. Do what I did buy yourself a volvo service manual on ebay. - Visitor
