I have an old neighbor that loves to give me a hand ( 8-| ) whilst I play with volvos. I gave him an 86 240 that i was given for a very low price some time back. It is a tidy old rig but has 3 issues. I have not really even looked yet but figured you 240 experts may just have some pointers before I do.
1. Battery draining - It lasts a day or 2 and the battery is too flat to start the car, nfi what is doing it. Definitely no lights staying on(including glovebox and boot) he has added the battery isolator to help prevent the problem but we would like to sort it properly.
2. WTF is the fuse on top of the P/S bottle, is it genuine? What size fuse should it have in it, is currently a 20A but blows from time to time, when it blows car stops.
3. Cold start... runs terrible when it is cold fine when warm.. usually takes 5 or 6 starts before it will run well enough to drive it.
