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.
