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 ...

Re: Low idle on cold start Turbo 1992

Hi, I agree with Rachel. the most probable culprit here is that diaphragm valve just before the ICV. Those give all sort of issues. Even if it has not gone bad, I would suggest replacing with a 710N valve. I had a very similar issue (if not the same) in the past. Take a look at Rachel's link You'll ...

Tips on removing rear spring suspension

Hi guys, Last month I decided do swap the suspension springs on the '91 turbo. The front ones went withou many issues. However the rear ones are proving to be harder than I thought. I'm having troubles disconnecting them from the rear axle. There is a bump stop holding them which i cannot remove. On...

Brass throtle screw replacement

Hi,
The slot on the brass throtle screw ( the one covered by the blue plastic protector) is gone. I cannot adjust idle.
Is there any replacement screw? Or do i need the whole throttle unit?

Re: Overhaul of rear suspension and axle

Hi guys,
I'm able to clear the rear springs from the top mounting.
However, the bottom of the spring is stuck due to the bump stop. I'm not able to remove the bump stop (at least in one piece). It does not have a retaining pin that I can find.
Any one knows how to remove it?

It's finnaly happening: Rough idle

Hi guys, So, since last year I've been experiencing some rough idle issues on my '91 Turbo. At first it started as a puff here and there when idle-cold. It was like one or two a second, but very unnoticeable. On the last 2~3 months it got very worse: the idle would not stop going up and down, betwee...

Re: New igintion coil

Thanks Robou for the help, I was looking at one of those coils and although they had more primary resistance, since they were described as High-output (40kV), I was thinking that It would produce a stronger spark (perhaps higher secondary to primary winding ratio). Any more specs I should be concern...
