Question about 1996 Volvo 850

1 Answer

My volvo 850 just had a tune-up but now when I turn the ignition-

..when I turn the ignition I hear the engine trying to catch but it doesn't on the first try. Usually after trying a couple of times it will catch. As the days go by, it takes me more tries to finally get the engine to start. Is my tune-up to blame? Do I need to maybe replace the distributor cap? I am NOT a knowledgeable mechanic and I have had this car for 6 months without problem. Any suggestions?

My 96 volvo 850 gtl2.4L ENGINE CRANK OVER BUT WONT START I REPLACED THE INGNITION COIL \ POWER STAGE WITH NO RESULTS.PLEASE HELP


Reasons for engine turning over and not firing are simple. Spark or fuel. If you've changed the coil packs then chances are it's a fuel issue. Get in cab and turn ignition to second position whilst listening to back seat. You should hear the faint noise of the fuel pump working. If you can't, I suggest you firstly check your manual to find the fuse/relay for the fuel pump and check that. If they are fine, you need to replace fuel pump.

If you can hear it working and it still won't start, remove the fuel line going to injector rail and point into a jar whilst someone turns engine over. You should have fuel coming out. If this is fine, go back to ignition, remove a spark plug and turn engine over checking for a spark.

My bet is your fuel pump has packed-up. Good luck diagnosing.

I have a 1994 volvo 850 GLT. Radio reset code


You will need to turn the ignition to the number 1 position and turn the radio on. It can take several hours, but the word code should come back on. When that happens, you will need to put the correct code in. If you don't have it, a Volvo dealer can give you the correct code from your VIN.

Odometer & trip meter stopped working.


Hello, We had the same problem about a year ago: 1996 Volvo 850 20V 2.5 L. We turned the ignition switch several times, and all the gauges was came back. I think the ignition switch cause the problem. We haven't had this problem since than.
