more fun

In this chapter "In the workshop" we have put together all the technical information that is important for a relaxing and carefree journey, be it on a short trip, on the way to the in-laws or when taking part in a demanding rally

Many of the articles are based on the workshop manuals and service notices from VOLVO AB on the one hand, and on the other hand, on the experiences, information, tips and tricks gained in daily practice.

We divide the contributions into three groups.

            Konstruktion und Funktion
Beschreibung von Aufbau und Wirkungsweise der verschieden Bauteile.

            Störungssuche, Reparatur und Instandhaltung
Anleitungen zur Fehlerermittlung und Beschreibung der regulären Reparatur- und Instandsetzungsarbeiten.

            Überholung
Anweisungen zur Generalüberholung von ausgebauten Motoren, Getrieben, Achsen, etc.

Alle Beiträge werden laufend überarbeitet, ergänzt und erweitert. Für Anregungen und für Hinweise, auch auf sachliche Fehler, sind die Autoren dankbar.

The D-Jetronic fuel injection system has also been installed in vehicles from other manufacturers.

For care and maintenance of the D-Jetronic system, we recommend the VOLVO Service Manuals (SM). Those who have read up a little will realise that the injection system and its components are not as complicated as some people report.

The customer service manuals from BOSCH are available as PDF files on the Internet or as antiquarian booklets.
