Welcome to the Forum, Mike.

Your "new" '89 240 may have the first-year crude OBD although a non-running car seldom talks.

The classic "won't start" issues include failed fuel pump relay, fried air mass meter, no fuel to injectors, no spark to plugs, severely out of timing, failed electronic control unit (ECU), faulty pickup in the distributor,...

Below is a link to everything 240 including service manuals (download then save), wiring diagrams, etc.

Alabama, eh - balmy, ain't it?!

Hi Mike,

I can't help much in the repairs department, but my first car was a 240 manual and I loved that thing! Have fun with your new 240.
