Re: Yet more engine issues

Hi friends,
Unfortunately the regulator did not solve the issue.
Took it also to volvo dealer but without success.
If I ever find the cause, I'll keep you posted.
Cheers

Re: Yet more engine issues

So, this weekend I started my teardow. I disconnected all pipework form the maf till the manifold (included) all pipes were ok even the ones that attach to the turbo. The throttle body was rather oily, as well as the TPS sensor. The oil came from the cranckcase breeder valve. This, because the trhot...

Re: Yet more engine issues

Guys, one more question. If it is air or vacum leak related, wouldn't disconnect the maf make itba bit better. At least for low revs?

Re: Yet more engine issues

Hi, yeah I forgot its a 91 turbo.

Idles perfectly.
I noticed it about two weeks ago. I think when it appeared, it appeared full on. Perhaps getting a bit worse now.

Yet more engine issues

Hi friends, having sorted the missfiring issues due to a bad distributor isolation, I have been driving for almost an year an almost perfect engine. But from last few weeks I am having yet more issues. This happens mostly on low engine speed and moderate trhottle application: the car as massive flat...

Info center in debug mode

Hi friends, As some of you might know it is possible to enter in debug mode in (at least some ) infocenters. To do so, press the reset button before turning on the ignition. You can see how many litters of fuel you have in the tank. You can also see the sensors values but in the range of 0-255 ( sin...

Re: URGENT: need throttle brass screw

BTW,
Robou: pluging the hole from the outside (and not between the manifold and the intake pipe) a high reving engine. Pluging the hole between the intake manifold and the intake pipe, leads to low idle.

No more original spark plugs

Hi everyone, Volvo has stopped producing the spark plugs for the turbo model. In my case a 91 b18ftm (no cat) I always purchased original ones since in the past I had many issues due to non-original spark plugs. For instance i had some issues with some bosch ones. So does anyone know good ones that ...

Re: 480 turbo boost loss

Hi guys,
What about the vacuum pipes that control the heater.
On the turbo, the heater has vacum pipes to control the direction of the blower.

Re: Wanted crankcase recirculating valve

Thanks James,
However that post refers to the non return valve connected to the idle controll valve.
The valve that I am looking for is the one that is inside the foam cilinder just next to it.
The valves are quite different.

Heavy stutering (seems fuel related)

Hi everyone, I'm having yet, more issues with the '91 turbo. last month it started stuttering heavily. When starting cold on idle I can hear some misfire and the engine is very weak and sluggish in lower RPM ranges. If I push the pedal a bit harder than 30% on lower RPMs the engine misfires. I took ...
