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.
The electronic portion of the ignition switch may malfunction, causing some dash lights to stay on. When this happens, a wiggle of the ignition key should temporarily return everything to normal.
Volvo 850 Questions
It happens when I shut the car off after having the a/c on
My car has been starting up just fine, but this morning it just wouldn't stay running, as if it was out of gas. The dash lights come on and it tries to turn over, if it does, it's very brief. Does it sound more like the fuel filter, fuel pump or maybe the relay?
