Have been looking in various places on the web and in a book but have not been able to find the answer. I am needing to know exactly where it is that the freon needs to be put into.
Daughter blew up the original engine and when trying to drop in a used engine, we discovered that the newer engine has an electronic distributor. The old one was mechanical. Since my wiring harness has no extra wires for the electronic distributor, can I swap them out and use my old mechanical distributor?

Once again, the vehicle is a 1960 Volvo PV 544.
well the Turn off signals work . that is about it…. Could it be the relays if so where are they?
after it stalls you wait a few minutes and it will start back up, now when you put on the brakes the brake light come on the dash and the demisdifer light come on and stays onfor a while and then goes out until you use the brake again. i can drive it during the day and it sometime does not stall, but at night when the lights are on it will happen.
Do rotors need to be replaced with new pads.
Engine red light comes on & off. I always make sure I have enough oil in the engine. Does the red light indicate to replace engin oil sense switch. I have checked & cleaned the wire connection to the sense line. The temperature on desh seems to be fine.
when unlocking the doors,it seems a relay is constantly allowing the door mechinism to continue to engage to unlock.While driving a sound of moss code can be heard under the dash area.The doors cannot be locked as a unit, when turnig the key in the drivers door,only that door locks. If I lock the passenger doors,get out and lock the driver door with the key, all passenger doors unlock.
in addition to my previous question. today i was searching the data link connector and ine #2 port received a very strange response. it was steady constant flashing and i could hear a clicking sound coming from the throttle body it happened three different times in the 2nd mode testing, when i unpluged the probe there was still a clicking from the throttle body. now am very confused.
