Repaired the speed sensor wires and now it is accurate, but the tachometer still isn't right. Any thoughts on where to look? It seems 'lazy' like it's not displaying all the engine RPM

Looks like you live in the La Loma area? I remember this car from a while ago.

It belonged to a local woman from around '95. I got it 3 years ago and live over behind the cemetery in that neighborhood.

Last round of repairs before my trip today.

Trip to Boise was cool. Need to do more maintenance on the front suspension and it will be golden. Anyone have suggestions for springs? Need to stiffen the front up a little more.

One of these plugs is not like the others. I haven't done them in....a while. What does the darkness mean?

I got lured in with a catchy title. Can we have a nsf240owners disclaimer for these cars

First one might be a bit of coolant - maybe not, 3rd one looks a bit rich, leaky injector?

The one in the center was never torqued properly, notice the uncrushed crush ring. Could be why it's a little lighter (sucking a little air).

I have a 242 turbo so it's unsafe territory for both sides when I post. Am I not quirky enough?

I haven't done injector seals or anything yet, will look.

The loosest one was furthest to the left (rear of engine), could it be because it has no heat shield and the other three do? Ones in the center seemed tight upon removal, but good thought.

Thanks Square. Your old 740 was one of my favs and the wagon is looking clean.

Trying to clean the engine bay one step at a time. I won't go all 'Pat Dickman' on it until I find a bottom end to put in and have a reason to make it pristine.


Edit: Should I just get an OEM coil, or is there some spiffy aftermarket one you 740 guys use?

Can anyone suggest to me shock and strut inserts that work well on lowered 740s?

Car has about 3k miles on the IPD upgrades and wheels. Understeer is much improved , and cornering is way more bearable

Met up with ButteryBrakeChecker today and scored some sweet parts (update tomorrow, I just got home). Good dude, cool city from the little I drove around and saw.

Thanks MadDog! I am loving them.

Also scored a K&N filter, sweet!



I still need a few more parts to install the 940 IC. Going to relocate the oil cooler, but not sure what to do about the radiator/airbox clearance. Does anyone know what I need to make this upgrade work? I could really use some pictures of a complete 93/94 940 turbo.

I thouroughly approve of that look. Just don't do it in black like I did in the end.
