1996 Volvo 850 ProblemsEngine 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.
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.
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.

Is this limp mode
It runs great out on the road, and it idles good too, but when I put it in gear or turn the AC on it starts to lope like it has a racing cam in it..it has a recent full tune up.. I can unplug the idle control sensor and it kills the engine, same with the mass air flow sensor..any clues?
