Seems unlikely, as when it happens I can crank and crank (while it's warm), then come back when it's cold and it fires right up.

The cold-start relay has 3 wires, one to the injector, one to...

Thank-you!
It's not a big expense, but as the least fun thing I could be spending my money on, I'd prefer to get it right the first time :)

Did you ever get this sorted out? Mine is having the same issues, it's a 1981 2442 Turbo that looks to have had the relay added, likely when the dealer did the intercooler retrofit.

I'm curious if you found a good solution. Other (older) threads are just piles of dead links and obsolete parts.

I have found the canisters without a purge valve using GM part# 17113148 on...

No, there is definitely supposed to be a washer included in the Meyle upper strut mount kit. Unlike the oem upper strut mount, the bearing doesn't have an extended nose which would cause the spring...

242 Turbo spring options? (for handling, not looks)

Let's just start with this, I'm pretty happy with the stock ride height of my '81 242 Turbo and I'm not looking to modifying it in a way that really hurts the collectibility/future-value of it, if...

Finally got a Flickr account setup so I can share some images on the forum & updated my original post with embedded images to replace the links.

My suspicion is that I'm dealing with a combination of vacuum leaks & a pretty heavy flywheel as when I tap the throttle it bogs instead of blips. I don't think I'd go the 2.2LH route if I switch to...

I'm always a fan of more lighting, good to know.


I know I'm largely driven by the nostalgia factor of my old 245 and roadtrips in a friend's 244. Is it worth enough that to justify limiting the...

Thanks for the picture!
I like your old-school, 3-piece wing paired with a trailer hitch, that's some classic Volvo ;-)

I actually added your grille to my watchlist earlier, I'm just not sure about the extra silver.

Thanks for the feedback!


Thanks, I'll check into the junk-yard route. I haven't seen any 240's around in some time, but maybe I just wasn't looking. I was a little worried the sedan and coupe...
