How do you find and replace the distributor cap on a 1994 Honda Accord 5spd?

Being a beginner in the DIY (do-it-yourself) area in the automotive world may be a little difficult. If you don't know where your distributor cap is on your Accord, it is probobly best to consult a professional or an Accord owners manual.\

:

The owner's manual probably doesn't say much about where the distributor cap is located. Is your car a 6 cylinder or 4? that question first, go to your local parts store, purchase the new cap and they will be happy to show you where it goes. Be sure and put the spark plug wires back on in the proper order, by doing them one at a time.

How do you replace the distributor cap on a 1991 Cavalier?

It depends on what engine you have. Some don't have distributers. GoodluckJoe

For the 1.8L & 2.0 L OHV Engines (For diagrams e-mail me: LanceRViolator@aol.com) <From a Chilton's> ON Chevrolet V6 models the distributor body is involved in the engine lubrication system. The lubrication circuit to the right bank valve train can be interrupted by misalignment of the distributor body. (Know your firing order to have correct position)

The '87-92 Chevy built 4 cyl 2.0: & V6 2.8L engines do not have a distributor. (They are DIS)

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. 2. Tag and disconnect all wires leading from the distributor cap. 3. Remove the air cleaner housing as previously detailed. 4. Remove the distributor cap. 5. Disconnect the AIR pipe-to-exhaust manifold hose at the air management valve. 6. Unscrew the rear engine lift bracket bolt an nut, lift it off the stud and then position the entire assembly out of the way to facilitate better access to the distributor. 7. Mark the position of the distributor, relative to the engine block and then scribe a mark on the distributor body indication the initial position of the rotor. 8. Remove the holddown nut and clamp fro the base of the distributor. Remove the distributor from the engine. The drive gear on the distributor shaft is helical and the shaft will rotate slightly as the distributor is removed. Note and mark the posistion of the rotor at this secod position. Do not crank the engine while the distributor is removed. 9. To install the distributor, rotate the shaft until the rotor aligns with the second mark you made (when the shaft stoped moving). Lubricate the drive gear with clean engine oil and install the distributor into the engine. As the distributor is installed the rotor should move to the first mark that you made. This will ensure proper timing. If the marks do not align properly, remove the didtributor and try again. 10. Install the clamp and holddown nut.

--> You may wish to use a magnet attached to a extention bar to position the clamp on the stud.

11. Installation o fthe remaining components is in the reverse order of removal. Check the ignition timing.

1.8L and 2.0L OHC Engines ( For Diagram e-mail me)

1. Disconnect the battery ground 2. Mark the spark plug wires and remove the wires & coil. 3. Matchmark the position of the rotor, distributor body and cylinder head. 4. Disconnect the wiring from the distributor. 5. Remove the two distributor holddown nuts. 6. Remove the distributor. 7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Torque the holddown nuts to 13 ft. lbs.

Where do you find a diagram for the air conditioning unit in a 1980 Volvo 242?

Get a copy of "Haynes Motor Repair Manual"---for your model they"re really good. The books are published in England but are available. in the haynes manual for the 1980 thru 1983 is very hard to read it leads to a alot of dead ends and leaves you asking more questions then you started. if you can get a "Chiltons" manual is more helpful or a dealer diagram is more helpful.

Where is the recharge port ac Volvo 240 dl?

the valve is usually located on the back of the AC compressor itself. If not there, you could also look for it along the line by the AC dryer. Look for the port that is on or closest to the LARGE hose line for the a/c. This is the only one you use to recharge the a/c. On most 240's it is sticking out of the lower back of the a/c compressor and is tough to get to if you don't remove the mass airflow meter. Of course the car won't run without the meter so I actually remove it, then replug it while charging the a/c.

Where would the fuel pump relay be located on a 1986 Volvo 240 DL?

I may be way off, but in my '85 240, the relay is beneath the dash on the passenger side. I don't know if it was moved after 85. Good luck. Yes that's right, its under the dash , its easiest to take out the glove box to get at it. You don't have to take the glove box out to remove the fuel pump relay. If you're thinking of the overdrive relay you would be correct. To remove the fuel pump relay, you have to remove the cloth cover under the passenger side of the dashboard. The relay is rectangular, and attached to the firewall by a metal clip. It's white in color and the part number is 3523608.

If your 1990 Volvo 240 Series will not go into overdrive what can be wrong?

Check the overdrive relay switch.

Check O/D switch by all means....but the most common problem is usually the Overdrive Relay. It's located behind the centre vents on your model, replace with EXACTly same part no. .....other similar relays will drive you crazy by disengaging each time you turn engine off - requiring you to remember to click it ON again.

How do you change the brake pads on a 1987 Volvo 240DL?

Put the car on jack stands and remove the wheels. Locate the calipers and brake pads and remove the pins and clips from the calipers. Slide out the old brake pads and push the piston back to make room for the new pads and shims. Slide in the new pads and shims and put the pins, clips and cotter pins back in. The front and rear replacement process are very similar, but have different pads and shims.

How do you replace the voltage regulator in a 1988 240 Volvo?

The regulator is internal to the alternator! Just replace the alt.

The alternator has an internal regulator that can be replaced by itself; however, when there is an issue with the alternator, it often involves diodes in alternator instead of or in addition to the regulator.

better repair shops will often take an alternator to an automotive electrical repair shop for same-day rebuilds, with the value much higher than a cheap rebuild in a chain parts shop, and hundreds less than a dealer replacement. You want Bosch or your own Bosch rebuilt

Fuel Filters
Volvo 240

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1989 Volvo 240?

It has two. The first is in the fuel tank, look under trunk mat for cover. Then to remove the filter you must knock the spin lock counterclockwise with a hammer and chisel carefully. The second is in the fuel line in front of the rear driver tire, a little bit in there. Its underneath a securing plate and the plate has three bolts that need to removed to show the filter and pressure fuel pump. Sometimes it mite be hard to find the plate because of years of gunk and filth so you also follow the fuel line from the tank there. It is a can looking filter in the fuel line. The in line fuel filter doesnt need to changed often, but dont just forget about it. A plugged fuel filter can leave u stranded, it happened to me, dont let it happen to u!

The power windows do not work on your 1985 Volvo the 16a fuse is good is there another power source?

Make sure you have the power connected to the switch, by taking a flat head screw driver and pop the whole plated that hold the buttons and make sure it's connected. ========== In my 1990, I had a broken power wire in between the door and the door mounts. Open your door and look for an accordion-like black wire protector. Remove it and check the now revealed window wire harness. The black wire is a power jumper that goes to all window up, down, on and off switches. Volvos are notorious for corroded wires and casings.
