I purchased a 1990 240 DL wagon last week. This weekend I gave it a good once over, changed the oil, air filter, and flushed the transmission. While looking over the engine, near the injectors I found what looks like a temperature sensor laying on the block. It is not screwed in and I could not seem to find where it goes. Attached are some picture of it.

Also, I looked at the drive shaft. In the middle of it, there is a rubber type mount. When I shake the drive shaft side to side, it will wiggle in this mount quite a bit. Is that normal?

Thank you in advance for the help.

Here is what is looked like when I found it:

I moved it a little to show you what it looks like.

Daniel,

It is kind of sitting on the center of the motor. Looking at the photo, the black part is the valve cover. The piece is sitting next to the driver's side of the valve cover and is almost dead center on the top part of the motor. The wire connected to the top of the sensor is roped between the two center fuel injectors. Hope that makes sense. If not, I'll take another photo and point at it.

how long is the electrical cable,that is a temp sensor it should fit in the block,half way down the engine on the drivers side, has the head been taken off, that may explain why it is there,some one forgot to fit it, before they fitted the head, as now, will be hard to refit with the head on,can refit with care, as cable can get burned by the exhaust manifold, if you go that way,but need to know the length of the cable, as it can be one of the sensors under the inlet manifold on the left side of the engine, just some one forgot were it came from, and just put it there just to hold it ,in place, look for a threaded hole on both sides of the engine, and look at the thermostat housing,for the two sensors one the top and one on the bottom, as it can be one of them, the length of the cable can tell you.

Robert,

Thanks for the help. It looks like there are two wires that enter a large bundle of wires on the driver's side of the motor. The wires appear to be one that is blue and one that is blue with a red stripe. The weird thing to me is that I would think the car would be leaking something, but the car is not dripping anything.

After doing a bunch of on line research this morning, I think I have figured out what it is. I think it is the item labeled Ignition and Fuel Temperature Sensor in this picture I found on line: (IMG:http://www.vlvworld.com/VolvoRepairManual/repair_pics/temp_knock_sensors.jpg)

I can't confirm it though because I cannot see this part of the block from the top of the motor. My question now is what do I have to do to get this little gem back in? Can it be done from the underside of the car, or do I have to pull the intake off? If I have to pull the intake, what is involved and does anyone have a reference guide?

Thanks,
The Fonz

Yeah I would agree. It is a serious pain to replace!

It will be easier to remove the intake to replace it, even if it is just pulling it away from the block. Consider replacing the intake manifold gasket and sensor if you are going through the effort. But it can be done by removing the distributor cap, etc and making enough room to get under the intake that way. The problem doing it that way is it's hard to get it tight into the block.

Check your coolant level. the car is probably running rich without the sensor.
