Well, you've probably noticed by now that things look a little different around here. You are a keen observer!

The whole site is new and that includes all of the software that drives this forum. With probably over 10,000 settings and hundreds of back-end programs trying to talk to one another, there are bound to be a few glitches that we haven't discovered yet. So, if you happen to stumble upon anything that just doesn't seem right, give us a shout and we'll try to sort it out.

Thanks for using the VCOA Forum and enjoy the new look!

Welcome to the Forum, Mike.

Your "new" '89 240 may have the first-year crude OBD although a non-running car seldom talks.

The classic "won't start" issues include failed fuel pump relay, fried air mass meter, no fuel to injectors, no spark to plugs, severely out of timing, failed electronic control unit (ECU), faulty pickup in the distributor,...

Below is a link to everything 240 including service manuals (download then save), wiring diagrams, etc.

Alabama, eh - balmy, ain't it?!

Hi Mike,

I can't help much in the repairs department, but my first car was a 240 manual and I loved that thing! Have fun with your new 240.
