1981 Volvo DL, GL and GLT Depress gas pedal half-way. If the engine does not start immediately when hot, depress the gas pedal to the floor and keep it there until the engine starts. 5 Turn the ignition key to start position. Release the key when the engine has started. 6 Push in the choke until best idling is obtained. Push it in more and more as the engine becomes warmer. The choke should be pushed fully in when the engine is thoroughly warm. Do not race a cold engine immediately after starting. Engine warm-up - initial driving procedure Experience shows that engines in vehicles driven short distances are subject to abnormally rapid wear because the engine never reaches normal operating temperature. It is therefore beneficial to reach normal operating temperature as soon as possible. This is achieved by driving with a light load as soon as possible. WARNING! Always open the garage doors fully before starting the engine inside the garage to ensure adequate ventilation. The exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, which is invisible and odorless but very poisonous. TURBO CAUTION Especially important for cars with turbo engines: Do not race the engine immediately after starting. When cold, oil flows less rapidly and will not reach all necessary parts immediately. Before switching off: Always let the engine speed drop to idle before switching off. After a hard drive let the engine idle for a few minutes before switching off. If the turbo is rotating at high speeds and the engine is switched off there is a great risk of heat damage or seizing due to lack of lubrication. pg. 37 Gear shift positions file:///K|/ownersdocs/1981/81_dl_gl_glt/81DLGLGLT_02.htm (4 of 13)12/22/2006 10:28:34 PM
