Question about 1994 Volvo 850

1 Answer

94 Volvo 850 GLE Sedan with 140k miles. It turns over but will not start. Put 2 gallons of new gas in a very low fuel tank, along with Heat in the tank. The temp has been below zero for the past week, the last time it was driven. Attempts to jump start have enabled the car to turn over but it would not start. Any ideas?

I have a 94 volvo 850 can go about 2 miles then it stops getting gas .. if i give it a min it will start again


hello, volvo had the same problem, if you look under your fuse box, you will find your fuel pump rely. fcpgroton has them for a good price. the cam position sensor will also cause this to happen the next time it cuts off tap it a couple of times while some one trys to start your car

1993 Volvo 850 wont start...help?!


It sounds like your fuel pump is having a problem with getting the last of the fuel from your tank. The pump also has a strainer on it. The unfortunate reality with the 1993 Volvo 850 is that the pump and strainer are located inside of your gas tank. You can look for kinks or pinched areas in the line but from your description it sounds like the pump is going. It has to work much harder when the fuel is low in the tank.

I HAVE A 1/2 GAL DIESEL FUEL IN MY GAS WILL IT HURT IF STARTED


dont do it. fuel injectors fuel filters and plugs may need to be replaced I would not take the chance. some people say fill the tank the rest of the way with regualr unleaded gas I say "NO" there is to much at stake like a complete cleanout of the engine and fuel system and this could cost thousand yes thousands of dollars

If the fuel gauge drops off when you are driving then its a sending unit problem that means you have to drop the tank and replace the float and sending unit. This is a common problem for alot of cars because of cheap gas. If you have to drop the tank check the fuel pump canster for dirt because of cheap gas. Replace the fuel pump strainer and fuel pump filter. If the car or truck has about 100,000 miles you might want to change the fuel pump at that time also just to cover your back. If you take it to a shop they will charge you at least $900 to start. But if you do it yourself it will cost you about $200 dollars maybe alittle more.

I had a similar problem only I was lucky enough that my gas gauge started working after it got lower than a 1/2 tank. It ended up being the float inside the tank. I ended up paying around $90 for the fuel float and it started reading the gas level correctly. But after 2 weeks and some severe cold weather, my engine wouldn't recieve any gas, ended up being the fuel pump. In buying the new fuel pump, along came a new float attached. So if your planning on replacing the float, go ahead and replace the whole pump, it will save you time, money, and hassle after its all over with.
