SOURCE: My Volvo 850 won't run on idle, it keeps coughing

sounds like a locked up torque converter
will the engine run at idle with the car in part
if not... could be the IAC

However, without diagnoses we are just guessing and you are throwing parts... easy... but not cheap

do you have any diagnostic tools like a DVOM and/or scan tool?

Idle speed for my volvo 850 too low. needs turning up slightly? when i start the car the idle revs are too low and car cuts out. but when its warmed up idling is fine.


Idol is controled by the computer. You need to run a diagnostic on the vehicle to determine what sensor is going bad. My best guess at this point is throttle position sensor or erg.

1996 volvo 850 powered down, all panel lights came on, car died, generator not charging light had been on for a month (looks like a battery), what could be problem, is it expensive,


when the generator quits the car will run until the battery is drained then it will stop. You need the constant recharging to keep running. Sounds like you will need an alternator. Seek a volvo shop and get estimates.

1987 volvo 244 intermittent fast idle floods after shut down


The coolant temp sensor sends signal to the ECU and the ECU adjusts the idle RPM. When the coolant is cold, the engine requires more fuel to sustain idle with thick oil (oil gets thicker & more viscous when cold). This makes the engine to idle at faster RPM but it should settle down to 850 RPM or so after the coolant warms up. The sensor is nothing but a thermistor; a device that changes electrical resistance according to the coolant temperature.
