1990 Volvo 740 Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1990 Volvo 740 based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The fuel pump relay may fail resulting in a "no start" condition, the engine will crank over but will not start and run. Checking for proper fuel pressure would be the first step in diagnosing this concern.
Engine stalling/stumbling problems can be caused by a failing mass airflow sensor.
When braking, a loose feeling from the front end can be caused by worn strut rod bushings. Worn bushings will require replacement. After they are replaced the wheel alignment should be checked.
A rattling noise from under the vehicle can be caused by a loose exhaust header pipe heat shield. Properly securing the shield should correct this concern.
Transmission oil leakage from the rear output seal is common, caused by a worn output shaft bushing. Our technicians tell us both parts should be replaced to correct this concern.
