SOURCE: EGR Valve and Cyl. 5 misfire.....???

Hi

If this is an electronic EGR valve which is opened and closed by the PCM, then it may simply have to relearn the fully closed setting for idle, and it can sometimes be done by switching off the ignition, disconnecting the wiring plug from the EGR valve, and then resetting the fault codes with a scanner.

Now here's the important bit, the very second the scanner tells you the fault codes are cleared, quickly switch off the ignition. This will prevent the PCM from setting another code.

You can then reconnect the EGR valve and hopefully the lesson will be steadfast in the PCMs memory!

As for the cylinder 5 misfire, if it is still misfiring then you need to check for spark, fuel, and compression in that cylinder.

Run the engine for a minute and then whip out the no.5 spark plug. Is it dry or covered in fuel? If its covered in fuel then you have a spark problem, and if its dry then you have a fuel problem.

If its a spark problem and the plugs each have their own coilpack, then it is very highly likely the coilpack at fault, and in which case it is best to fit a new plug as well as a coilpack.

If its a fuel problem then it is very highly likely the injector at fault but you should check for a supply and earth pulse at the injector before condemning it, because sometimes the injector loom becomes crimped and damaged.

It could be a compression problem, but I doubt it, however, just to be safe you may want to carry out a compression test on that cylinder before throwing parts at it.

An easy way of determinig injector and coilpack faults is to move the suspect part onto another cylinder and see if the fault code follows it. If it does then you know that component is faulty.

Regards

SOURCE: Pulled Codes Volvo 1995 850 Need Help

I would lean toward the MAF sensor they were known for going bad, which would cause all these codes. It wouldn't hurt to take the IAC off and spray it out with carb cleaner and some WD40, just to cover your bases. Both these units were made by Bosch and the MAF failed alot more often then the IAC.

SOURCE: how do I change out a non working odometer/trip meter?

This has been a problem with VOLVO especially the 850 models what happens is the plastic senssor inside the speedometer breaks off and it will tell you the road speed but ODOMETER AND TRIP METER will not work and the only way to fix it is to take the cluster out and sometimes it can be soldered back in place or get a used cluster and replace the unit sorry but it is not a simple fix

SOURCE: how do you change the pcv valve on 94 volvo 850

It has a flame trap, no PCV valve per say. On your air inlet tube come from the throttle housing you'll see it. Disconnect the hose from throttle and air box.
remove and twist flame trap out, replace plactic screen and reinstall.

  • 1

    Turn the Volvo 850 off and allow the engine and its components to cool for 30 minutes.

  • 2

    Open the hood of the Volvo 850 by pressing the hood release button within the vehicle. Locate the PCV valve; the valve is identified as a small rubber valve located on the engine crankcase. You will also notice a small hose sticking out of the end of the valve. If needed, read the Volvo 850 owner's manual for more information.


  • Disconnect the hose from the valve by pulling the hose out of the valve. The hose will come off the valve with minimal force.

  • 4

    Turn on the engine of the Volvo 850. Place your finger over the hole in the valve where the hose was connected. If you feel a strong suction, the valve is working properly and fine. If you do not feel a strong suction, the valve may be clogged and needs replacing.

  • 5

    Turn off the engine of the Volvo 850. Use needle-nose pliers and grip the valve. Pull the valve off of the crankcase.

  • 6

    Install a new valve by putting the valve in place on the crankcase. Insert the hose into the new PCV valve. Secure the new valve in place by pushing it down until it locks into place. Close the hood of the Volvo; pull up on the hood to ensure the hood is shut properly.

    Car is stalling and idleing irradically.


    I Would Suggest That You Complete A Engine Cylinder Leak Down Test.....(not A Compression Test But A Leak Down Test) this will tell you if you have internal problems....possible worn rings or a burnt valve(s) I would use a smoke machine to check for vacuum leaks also. Good Luck

    1994 volvo 850 - non turbo


    Try cleaning the throttle body and air idle control valve (IAC). The computer kicks the idle up when the a/c is on, if your throttle body or AIC valve is full of crud it will idle very low and feel rough.

    If you look underneath the car, directly beneath the left hand side of the radiator, you will see the drain plug. you can use either a 6mm alan key or a 13mm deep socket to undo the plug.
