[RWD] [900] [1993] 1993 940 wagon a few repair questions.

Hi Griff951, Answer1: The "brake line junction block" below the MC is the brake proportioning valve. This valve is to prevent the rear-end "fishtailing" in the event of hard braking. So it is a safety item. Both brake lines from the MC go to it. From the valve it would then branch out to the ABS control unit or straight to front/rear brakes (for cars without ABS). First tip: Try tightening all the brake line nuts at the valve first. Use proper brake line wrench. If tightening doesn't work t...

[RWD] [200] Squealing interior vent fan

The fan motor is not the worst, and no, the 240 is not built around the fan motor! The first part on the assembly line is the heater core which is then magically suspended in mid-air while the heater core assembly is placed around it, and then the fan motor is installed to that assembly. The rest of the car then follows. So no, not the most hateful job out there, but a very, very close second. Matt

[RWD] [900] Anti-Freeze Change schedule

your schedule's correct but the coolant is wrong. zerex g05 is what volvo says to use. it has no phosphates to react with the aluminum in the head. phosphate will leach out and in some cases, will clog the radiator. good luck, chuck.

[RWD] [900] A/C reduction on acceleration adjustable?

Your problem is most likely related to a vacuum leak where one of your vacuum valves looses vacuum and opens a flap causing you to get hot air. Try putting the fan on position 1 and turning off the radio and when you accelerate and then let off the glass, listen to see if you hear one of the vacuum valves. Also check under the hood to see if there is a vacuum leak on one of the hoses that go thru the firewall on the passenger side for the air conditioning.There are some little valves in the ho...
