Unfortunately, many vehicles of the P1800 model series are now being sent on winter holidays. Especially to protect them from road salt. There they should be covered carefully and professionally. Certainly not with sheets and duvet covers with questionable patterns.

For interiors we recommend the protective covers Auto-Pyjama® from J.F.Stanley & Co.in SATIN or COTTON quality..

Both versions can be washed at 30 °C! This is especially appreciated by those whose parking space is contaminated by soot from diesel vehicles.

wa volvo p 1800

Warren Townsend (Volvo 1800-120 Club Australia) had some time ago very carefully edited and coloured the electrical schematics of the 1800E and 1800ES models. They are available in PDF format and can therefore be enlarged or printed in sections as required.

During the revision of his Volvo 1800E Warren also noticed that the original wiring diagrams in the workshop manuals are not so easy to read, only black and white and pressed into A4 format. So he first draws the plan for his car. In the Volvo community his work met with great interest, he was asked to draw a schematic for a Volvo 1800ES. And that was the start of the project "All schematics of the models P1800, 1800S, 1800E and 1800ES, from 1969 to 1973".

A back-breaking work, to gather all schematics together, to sift them and then to create the different layouts in vector graphics! The names of the components are entered in the plan and do not need to be searched for in a separate table.

We would like to thank Warren, who provides the electricians with such clear circuit diagrams free of charge!

A tip: Print out the desired plan in A3 format and laminate it.

Perhaps not the typical Volvo P1800 owner, Neil's hankering for the model derived from a life-long exposure to Volvo cars in general – not from "The Saint" TV show, as some might suppose!

The autor Neil Murray: His father was in the Volvo Owners Club, and Neil accompanied him to many rallies, where the P1800 gradually became the focus of his attention. He has owned several 1970s-era Volvos since the early 1980s; in fact, his first Volvo, a 1973 144S, was his first car, bought before he could even drive.

Neil acquired his first P1800, a 1970 1800E, in 1988. He has owned and worked on them ever since, and now shares his first-hand experience and expertise in this book.

STOP! Don't buy a Volvo P1800 without buying this Essential buyer's Guide first!

The articles and information on the electronically controlled BOSCH D-Jetronic petrol injection system are becoming increasingly comprehensive on this site. The articles, documents, tables, lists and illustrations for maintenance, care and repair are systematically arranged in a special chapter. We have also included information for owners of a VOLVO 140 or VOLVO 164E with D-Jetronic.

As the problems with the maintenance of the D-Jetronic also affect vehicles of other manufacturers, we sometimes refer to these models as well.

The supply of components of the D-Jetronic has become more difficult, here we want to help you with our hints.

One request: Please help with your tips and comments to ensure that the BOSCH D-Jetronic can be well maintained in all vehicles. After all, the knowledge of the technical precursor of today's injection systems should be preserved for the owners of these special classic cars.
