1994 Volvo 850 Problems

Engine Cranks Over and Doesn't Start

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.

AC Not Cold Due To Evaporator leak

The AC evaporator can develop a leak resulting in insufficient AC cooling. Our technicians recommend when replacing the evaporator, have a pollen filter kit installed to help with air quality in the cabin.

Oil Leak From Turbo Return Pipe Seal

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.
