1994 Volvo 850 Problems

Intake manifold gaskets leak causing driveability issues

The intake manifold gasket can leak and cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate, idle speed to be erratic and a hard starting engine. A hissing noise can often be heard from the gasket area when the leak is bad enough. Removal of the intake manifold is needed to replace the gasket.

Rumbling Noise From Front of Vehicle While Driving

One or both of the front wheel bearings may fail resulting in a rumbling noise from the front wheel area when driving over 25 mph.

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.
