Thank you again Pierce and Volvodok for your great ideas. I'm encouraged that I don't have to buy a new car (ugg) in order to enjoy a radio! I have a USB port so will fill a stick with music...

I love my 82 Volvo DL wagon I've had for about 25 years, but I really dislike the radio I had to put it in.

For some reason I decided to put a new radio in it about 10 years ago. I thought it...

82 Volvo reved 40 times!

Since this is the same problem, I'm going to add to this original post of mine. Since we last talked in September I think the problem subsided and was actually gone for weeks. Yesterday however, it...

High idle in 82 Volvo DL wagon

I think my car is fuel injection. I looked online for my model and year and they talk about fuel injection parts.

The shop I've taken this car to for as long as I've had it (25 years I think) is...

I've had my 82 Volvo DL wagon in to my mechanic 3 times to fix this problem, and it is still not fixed!

I drive a 1982 Volvo 240 DL wagon. It has been well maintained as it belonged to my parents and then to me. I've had it routinely serviced at what I have feel is a reliable Volvo shop.

On my...
