We always have the manifolds surface ground at a machine shop when we do these. The manifold will warp form heat cycling and needs to be flat to seal. Take it to a machine shop and they will now what to do.

SOURCE: 95 850 Coolanl leak

The turbo is cooled by engine coolant and possibly one of the cooling hoses have failed - it's pretty difficult to see back there so you'll need a mirror and a flashlight.

SOURCE: 1991 volvo turbo idles and runs ok exhaust

The Garrett turbo-charger is notorious for leaking oil into the intercooler, and, into the emissions system. This happens because the bearing wears in the turbine assembly, and dumps lubricating/cooling oil into the combustion and intercooler system. It also ruins all of the rubber hoses that come in contact with the oil.

A result of this, after thousands of miles of driving: Your catalytic converter is clogged. The backpressure from the clogged exhaust increases the manifold temperature to cherry hot!

When I had my Volvo service and sales business, I lost money on only one Volvo; a turbo-charged 1988 wagon! A friend of mine who made his living salvaging Volvos had similar experiences with turbo-charged 240's and 740's. I hate to break the news to you my friend, but you will need to spend lots of money on that vehicle.

Trust me, do not try to fix it as it's a black hole---$700-900 for the rebuilt turbo ($250 for the rebuild kit), $200-300 for the catalytic converter and on and on! When I bought that vehicle from the original owner, It had a stack of repair receipts an inch thick!

The only recommendation, if you must keep and drive the car: remove the turbo-charger, intercooler, and all attendant hoses. Replace the air assembly with one from a normally aspirated B230F, and keep the airmass you just installed. Replace the catalytic converter with a good used one if you can find it.

There are actually two gears that you need to replace, a large one and then smaller one that rides inside it. You can purchase them both at www.fcpgroton.com These can also sometimes affect the operation of your speedometer. Do you by chance have an ABS and TRACS light on? If so the speedometer issue may be related to your ABS controller.

SOURCE: volvo 850 smoke coming from exhaust manifold

Not to worry. Run the engine up to operating temp before jumping to conclusions and let the heat burn off any excess oil. A leaf will not do any damage.Do not let the engine overheat while idling and if the oil light comes on switch off immediately.
The smoke from the exhaust is oil deposited by oily assembly hands just burning off. It should dissipate after about 15 minutes at most.(or 5 miles' drive)

Fuel injection relay. It is located under the hood inside the fuse box. It is either red or green in color. It is one of the larger relays. This is classic symptom of these things going bad. The heat causes the relay to swell and not engage properly. They die out every couple of years. Usually the car will start again after it cools down.

It's the map sensor ( manifold absolute pressure) I don't have my manual at the moment, so I can't tell you exactly where it is. There should be an emissions sticker under the hood somewhere showing the location of it.

I need a activation code 4 my 1996 volvo 850 glt


If you mean the radio activation code, you should try looking in your owner's manual, if someone wrote it down like they should.

If not, then you need to find a place that sells that brand of radio, and have them change it and give you the new code. They can't give you the old one.

How do you replace o2 sensor in volvo 850..by the way its a 96..and what do i need to do it?


an o2 sensor is near the catalytic. converter on the exhaust either right before it or right behind it. you can use a wrench, probably going to be larger than a 13-15mm wrench. they unscrew out of the exhaust tube and disconnect from a main line. take them out, and re connect the new ones. let me know how it works!
