Hi there,

My name is Nick and I'm a Volvo 360 co-owner with three of my mates in Australia. I'm actually a Jaguar enthusiast, so Volvos are a foreign thing for me to be involved in. Our 360 has some issues, so it would be good to hear your advice on any issues!

Thanks,

Nick.

Hi there,

Thanks for the warm welcomes. We're planning on making the car into a track/autocross car with the hopes of doing hill climbs as well. The car has been a bit of trouble from the outset as we can't actually get it to run for any length of time. We think it might be the Renix ignition system, but we're not sure. Any thoughts?

If there is a good spark, I would say fuel pump. Is it carb or injection?

Welcome to the forum, if it has a good spark then I would say fuel pump too.
