1993 Volvo 850 ProblemsCorroded rotors may cause vibration from rear of vehicle when braking
Vibration from the rear of the car when braking can be caused by corroded rotors, especially when braking going down hill. The rotors will need to be replaced and special shims installed from Volvo to prevent this from happening again.
It's quite common for the the fuel pump to fail, causing a no start condition. The engine will crank over but it will not start.
To verify this the fuel pressure and electrical power to the fuel pump should be checked. If the pump is getting power and there's no pressure, replace the pump. If it isn't getting power, check the fuel pump relay circuit.
The turbocharger return pipe seal may develop an oil leak. The leak can begin very small, but will eventually progress into a large leak. Our technicians recommend having this repaired at first signs of leakage.
