How many gears does your 1982 Suzuki TS 125 ER have?

My TS 100 had 5, but my TS 250 had 6. I would imagine yours has 5. The TS125 has a weak gearbox and often the 2º axle bearings break, the simphtoms start by a noisy 4º and 6º,later on you lose the 6º , and you discover you have a new dead point or neutral afther or up 5º, that´s probably you´re asking for.

Mark driveshaft, yoke, and splines so that drifshaft is replaced at same location to maintain factory balance

Both yokes (rear end and transmission) are bolted in so you must removal four blots around each yoke 17mm bolt and 15mm nut in order to removal drive shaft.

after all hardware has been removed the drive shaft slides out. easier to pull out from the front of the drive shaft loop.

How do you change out the lite bulb in the automatic shifter column of a 1991 740 turbo?

You need to remove the shift console, it's a hassle. I sugggest you replace it with an LED it's a direct plug in replacment (available from Bosch or Narva) it will save you ever doing it again! Take out ashtray as if to access fuses, remove cig. lighter surrond trim piece......unscrew the 1 screw [ on l.h.s. ] and slide out stereo equalizer [N.B. - this is how you access relays, if you ever need to....the fuses + relay board block slides out, after release of plastic retainer clip on l.h.s. of fuse/relay block. Then unscrew (2) Phillips head screws by going through little brush on shifter,..one at each end [ one near "P", 1 near "1" ] .....Now lift out cover.....changing bulb is now obvious. You can also easily change bulb for cig. lighter/ashtray lamp before reversing steps. Seriously consider replacement of ALL of these pesky little lamps [ one at a time, on a as you need to, basis ] with LED's......that way your Volvo's little warning/advisory/courtesy/illumination lights will ALL work all the time, when they're supposed to...... kudos to the way this was answered leds are the way to go but id replace them all at once for sure and then no problems ... (at least with these bulbs!)

Car Stalling Problems

What could cause a Volvo 740 Turbo to stall after it has warmed up when you push in the clutch and the RPMs are over 2500?

Hello, here is a short list OS solutions which i hope may help you.......1 - Engine Management system fault2 - Vacuum leak at the inlet manifold or associated hoses3 - Fuel filter choked4 - Fuel pump faulty5 - Fuel tank vent blocked of fuel pipes restricted

I hope that this help you.

AnswerAssuming you have cruse control.I belive the cruse control is dissengaged by a vacume system that uses switches under the dash to let the system know if the clutch or brake has been pressed. Check to see if there might be a massive air leak when the clutch is pressed. I would think that there would be a vacume leak that you could hear if this was the problem. Does it stall at lower RPM? When cold?

IF THE CHECKING engine sometimes shoW up sometimes do not show up like when is cold the dont show up when the engines warm up show up any ideas WHY?

THIS HAPPENS MORE OFTEN THEN YOU MIGHT THINK IT WOULD. USUALLY IT MEANS NOTHING, AND A GOOD AUTO SUPPLY SHOP WILL BE ABLE TO TELL YOU IF IT IS A REAL PROBLEM OR JUST A MALFUNCTION IN YOUR CAR'S COMPUTER.ASK IF THEY HAVE A DIOGNOSTIC TOOL FOR YOUR VEHICLE THAT WILL TELL THEM WHY THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON NOW AND THEN. IF THEY DON'T, OR WANT TO CHARGE YOU FOR IT, GO TO ANOTHER AUTO SUPPLY SHOP, AND ANOTHER, UNTIL YOU FIND ONE THAT WILL FIND THE CODE THAT CAUSES THE PROBLEM AND EITHER STOPS IT, BY BY-PASSING THAT CODE, OR RECOMENDS YOU SEE YOUR DEALER OR HAS A SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM RIGHT THERE.

How do you replace the in-tank filter on a 1989 740 Can't get the entire assembly out the inspection port?

it comes out the port no problem. if this is pluged up you have issues. never seen these give a problem. volvodoctor. If it doesn't come out with patient manipulation you can loosen the clip connecter screw that clamps the rubber tube which connects the motor to the metal tube. Gently pull off the rubber tube from the metal pipe and withdraw the motor section first.( the clip connecter small screw and nut shouldn't drop off as the nut is clamped into position. Only undo this clip screw and nut just enough to loosen the rubber tube and this will lessen the odds of anything dropping into the tank) Hold the motor firmly whilst withdrawing it. (don't be worried about dropping it into the tank because the connected wire will prevent this happening but be careful all the same). Once the motor is out of the hole then the rest will come out ok. The whole unit seems to go back through the hole easily. It is very important that you don't test the pump near the exposed tank as sparking could occur with drastic results. Undo leads at nearest plug and test away from the car, but only for a few seconds because these pumps are designed to run in the petrel which keeps them cool. Also make sure the battery is disconected at all times whilst working on the intank pump and the sender unit. when testing (away from the car),if the pump dies after a second or two it doesn't especially mean a duff pump as they will often as not work well in petrel which of course is acting as the cooler.
