Could be that someone stole your drive shaft or it fell out OR the linkage or cable release system is bound up or adjusted so tight that it keeps plates apart or the plates are just totally worn out or something internal to clutch release broke. Or someone put your vehicle up on blocks so the tires are just barely off the ground a very dirty trick but not as bad as stealing your drive shaft Seriously, the most likely is that your clutch is worn out. Also check the linkage/cable/etc. for any ability to adjust it to get the clutch working again--the length of the cable/linkage matters. Clutches do wear out and fail.
If it does not have a Hydraulic clutch, then it has no fluid. If it has a Hydraulic clutch the clutch master cylinder is normally located on the firewall, driver's side, near the brake master cylinder.
take it to the clutch guys 713-783-0006
From Spokane Volvo Jag and Land Rover......the initial timing is 10 to 12 degrees!
The same way you would for brakes. Pump the clutch 4 or 5 time and hold down then open the bleeder valve to release the air. Is it the 2.8L V6 motor?
My Chilton Volvo repair manual ( 1970 to 1983 ) shows ( DOT 4 brake fluid )
Not sure what you're asking about. I have a 1998 S10 standard shift that still has a clutch pedal.
There is NO adjustment. It is adjusted automatically through the hydraulic slave cylinder. Probley time for a NEW clutch kit.
There is no adjustment for the starter clutch. If it isn't worknig properly you replace the rollers, springs and other parts as needed.
As i believe, from experience of owning one, 1984 is when the hydraulic clutch came into place. You shouldn't need to bleed the clutch on an 83' S10. Not unless its not the stock transmission.
If you were born in 1983, how old would you be?If you were born in 1983, you would be 27. To get that answer, you would do 2010-1983.
According to my Chilton's Volvo repair book : The ( 1980 to 1983 ) DL , GL , Diesel takes : With engine oil filter change : ( 7.4 U.S. quarts ) * my book only covers up to the 1983 models *
Type your answer here... 10 to 12 degrees BTDC
Most of the Volvo 240's FM 1983 -1991 use .028.....but just call any auto parts store and they will be glad to help.........
Try FCP Groton. Search for it on Google or Yahoo.
Make sure there is a ground wire from the transmission to the frame. Most likely is has been un hooked or misplaced .
u must bleed the system . fill the clutch master cylinder with dot 3 brake fluid and keep an eye on it when bleeding so it wont run out ,have someone pump clutch pedal 3 times and hold to floor and oper bleeder valve on clutch slave cylinder till no air comes out then go to clutch damper and do the same ,follow clutch line fromclutch master cylinderto damper.
1 - 3 - 4 - 2 The distributor rotor turns clockwise
It should be down below where the slave cylinder connects to the tranny
First adjust the knurled adjuster at the lever all the way in then adjust the cable at the lower end until there is 1/2" or so of free play at the lever.
I have the same car and had the same issue. the SOND light is your oxygen sensor.
Begin by removing the wiring harness from your 1983 Volvo 240 turn signal lamp. Remove the turn signal lamp assembly retaining bolts. The turn signal lamp assembly will come out. Reverse the process to install the new turn signal lamp assembly.
wires on the starter are criss crossed
The clutch master cylinder is under the hood, drivers side, on the firewall. It is between the brake master cylinder and the drivers side fender. The cylinder is very small in comparison to the brake master cylinder. It goes through the firewall and connects to the clutch linkage under the dash.
Someone born in 1983 would be 27 years old in 2010.
