1994 Volvo 850 Q&A
1994 Volvo 850 Question: stopped while driving
Since last summer,I had replaced the fuel ejector, fuel pump, spark plug, speed switch sensor , the car still stopped when I was driving on the road. I could restart it but it might stop again , it happened twice, the Volvo shop cannot find the problem. What else can the problem be? - yih
The fuel pump is the main culprit when this problem occurs. I would also replace the fuel pump relay. Is your check engine light on? Have you had any fault codes stored? - Bret Bodas
Usually once the fuel pumps on these cars quit, they are done. Under the hood next to the windsheild there is a fuse box. When you pull the lid off there is another part that has four screws in it. If you take out those four screws and take the top off the part that doesn't have fuses you will see some relays. The fuel relay will be green or red about an inch wide and two inches long. Look at the lid it will tell you which is the fuel relay. Pull it out and replace it. That should fix you up. - johnnyk17
My car will just stall while driving. Not at a stop, but as I am driving down the road. What could this be?
My Volvo 850 1994 just stops...like someone turned off the key while I am driving it or stopped at a light. It ALWAYS starts up again within a minute or two. Been going to same mechanic who only ...
I can drive my 850 wagon, no problem starting up. Drive it a while, stop, inside temperature sensor registers high. Have to use shift override to get in gear and then it moves a bit and stalls.
