1994 Volvo 850 station wagon

When I accelerate, it sputters and feels like it's misfiring. It also has a rough idle when sitting at a light, it sputters and the rpm's drop a little when it does.

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.

SOURCE: Rough idle, Car shakes, sputters and misfires upon acceleration

It sounds like you may have a problem feeding the fuel to your engine, I had the same problem with my 89 RS. All the 1989 model's fuel systems were recalled. I think you may need a new fuel pump. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank in the rear of the car right under the rear axle. The fuel pump itself isn't too expensive, but with other small parts such as the electrical harness upgrade and fuel filter and the labor you should be looking somewhere in the $500 range. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2003 Crown Vic Misfiring after acceleration

I just came up with that exact issue in my 2003 with 98K police crown vic. And the last time I had this issue in a 2001 police Crown vic it was the crank shaft position sensor. A $20 part and about 30 mins to put it in. located near the bottom of the engine. I had to un bolt the A/C compressor and push it out of the way a few inches to get to the sensor. If you have about 100K mile on it and its an idled heavy police car, this sensor should be changed out anyway. It can leave you on the road dead and some dealers have a hard time find out whats wrong as the OBD 2 does not see it as a problem when it goes bad or becomes touchy as I think mine is.

SOURCE: Cost and how to repair a heater core on a 1994 Volvo 850 Wagon.

The heater core on your Volvo is an easy fix. The dash does not need to come out. You remove 6 screws from the center console, pull that out of the way, pull back the carpet and there she is. A couple more screws, a tug to the back to remove the bad core and you replace in reverse. Put down a plastic bag or catch-can to get whatever coolant comes out when the core is removed. I thought I was in for an expensive repair until I researched and saw how easy the job was.

It's impossible for anyone here to give an estimate because rates and parts availability vary from state to state. I'd call your local Volvo dealer parts department to get an idea of the parts costs or even if they can find one. You may have a better chance of locating the parts in a junk yard.

1996 850 wagon turbo rough idle and check engine light on


Tough to determine without the OBD-2 codes. A rough idle can be from a number of things. Clogged injectors, bad sensor, restricted airflow etc..
If you take it to your local auto-parts store you can obtain the codes and report back here. They should do it for free. Most of the time with these cars it is a simple fix.

It sounds as thou you have moisture in your distributor.Pull the distributor cap off and let the car sit and dry out for a couple of days and see if that fixes the problem.
