Question about 1993 Volvo 850

1 Answer

A/c works only for about 15 minutes, at idle or moving.

I'm guessing either the cut out switch or the a/c relay.

Hi we have a linde h70d 7 ton forklift that cuts of every 2min then you remove a grey relay then it starts again for 2 min

Well, I'd have to guess that the relay is bad, overheating and when you pull it out for 2 minutes ,it's getting cool enough to work again, then it heats up and cuts out again, have it tested.

What goes a idle position sender do on a 97escort

Low oil pressure switch is designed to cut off engine to prevent damage. If you are sure oil pressure is good when light starts blinking, replace pressure switch. Idle position sender IDK.

Drive to work is 35 miles one way on Los Angeles Freeways engine is warm/hot when this happens usually after idling in gridlock after 15 or 20 minutes it will start again and run well

When it starts ti get to warm on the gauge, open the windows and crank the heat up that will alleviate some of the engine heat. That will help a little.
Now since your saying the car doesn't get to hot when moving im going to guess that there is an airflow problem with you radiator.
1. check to see if there is a blockage of the fins (looking in from the grille).
2. Does the fan come on either when hot or the A/C is on.
If not check fan circuit (fan, relay, and other sensors that activate it).
Coolant may be old and need of a flush to get nasties out of engine and rad.
Just some things to look at. Dont hesitate to ask questions to your mechanic too.

1991 VW GTI 8 Valve 1.8 Starts ok, then will die on me after a few minutes of idling. A few months ago, the problem wasn't as bad. Past few days it would make a clicking sound in the dash area and...

There are only a couple of relays that it could be. One for the fuel pump and one for the computer. It they aren't expensive, I would replace both. If they are expensive, I would put a voltmeter on the fuel pump positive side to see if the power is cutting out. If that is ok, then I would do the same to the computer. The wiring diagrams are available on

2003 lincoln tc ac problem AC compressor does not engage for 10 to 15 minutes or not at all

No solution, but have same problems. Takes 15 to 20 minutes to even start producing cool air. Ford place said Evaporator. Could this be true. Works pretty good when the compressor finally engages, also works better if I am sitting still. Seems like more stress on motor causes it to get warmer and very humid.

I have a 1991 oldsmobile cutlass ciera

Igniton module prabably is the problem. Without testing it when it does not start we are just guessing but usually when it acts up only when the car gets hotter it usually points to an ignition issue.

Just need to know where the fuel cut off relay is

I guess on the Carb, at the idle port, its a solenoid I suspect.
