1995 Volvo 850 Problems

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.

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.

If you hear a loud knocking noise from the rear of the car while driving then there's a good chance the rear upper shock mounting plate is broken. We suggest replacing both rear upper shock plates at the same time because the other one is likely ready to fail as well.

not much power, hesitattion

My vehicle has 275000 miles on it, usually runs great, it was pouring down rain on the freeway and started bogging down. Could it be water in my gas? Used a new cheap gas 2 days prior.

1995 Volvo 850 Reviews

I love this car just replaced some things but overall a great car and gets close to 500 miles on full tank when driving out of town. I am at 121k miles

Still going strong and reaching 300k miles

I own a 1995 Volvo 850 turbo with 200,000+ miles on it. It still runs well for a 19 year old car. Only real problem is the air conditioning - after it failed twice i finally gave up on fixing it.
