Question about 1995 Volvo 940

1 Answer

I have a Volvo 940 from 1991, 2,3 liter injection engine. One day was not possible to start. The garage changed the Jetronic computer from Bosch. They say that the fuel pomp was stopped by the Jetronic box. First they say that the alarm burn some connexion in the box. They tested the fuel pomp directly and was ok. After changing the Jetronic box the car started but the Lambda board lamp remained open and they say now is a fuel injection problem but they have to do a research and is very costly. In fact they seam in the limbo of an open choice of problems. Their first reaction was to advice me to scrap the car. I am in Belgium not in a difficult country for those cars. Thank you for your help. Juan

Just bought the 1988 Toyota pickup and don't know what size engine in it. I need to change the oil and need to know what type.

If it's a 4 cylinder it's a 2.4 liter. If it's a 6 cylinder it's a 3.0 liter. The 2.4 liter engine comes with a carb, Fuel injection or even a turbo. Either way the 2.4 and the 3.0 take the same oil filter. The bosch is # 3330. I hope this helped and good luck.

Code 221--- is this usually oxeygen sensor

If it is a Bosch LH 3.2 Jetronic System 221 =long term fuel mixture too weak in part load stage
If it is a Fenix 5.2 System 221=Lambda Operation; also Heated oxygen sensor (mixture too rich under part throttle)
/ long term fuel mixture too weak in part load stage

So yes

Does 1990 Oldsmobile Regency have a ccold start injector?

no this engine doesn't use a cold start injector, only early fuel injection systems (Bosch K jetronic) used this part, this is a "L" jetronic system.

Difficulty in cold starting golf MKII 1988

If it is the EFi model (electronic fuel injection) then change the coolant temp sensor

If it is the slightly earlier Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical injection it could be either the warm up valve or the 5th injector (Blue coloured part on the end of the fuel rail)

Hard to start when engine is cold

The thing you need to do is run a leak down test on the fuel pump overnight, hook up a fuel pump test guage to the fuel injector gas rail test port, run the engine, note the fuel pressure when you shut the engine off, it should not drop more than 5 PSI overnight, if it does you need a new fuel pump. Your car doesn't use a cold start valve, that was used on very early Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection systems, they where last used in the 80's
