Question about 1993 Volvo 850

3 Answers

My coolant light came on about a week ago. I am busy and trying to get in some where. Today it reached freezing temp outside. And about 3 days ago my blower stopped working. I am now unable to defrost the windshield. Are these related and what is the fix? I have checked some fuses and they are good.

If it isn't over heating, then the coolant light means it's low on coolant, just add some to it, but don't fill it to the top.
As far as the blower, if the fuse is good , have the relay switch checked, or the blower motor it's self might be no good.

Daughter while driving temp light came on. However less then 3 days ago had all fluids and oil changed any thoughts?


Hello, if the water in the radiator was quite low, before topping up, there could be an airlock in the system. Does the internal heater blow hot air? If it only blows cold air, even when the control setting is set to hot this indicates either low water level or air lock in the heater matrix or pipe feeds to it. Quite a few models have bleed valves on the pipe runs under the bonnet just before the bulkhead.
Hope this helps you.

My check engine light is on, and today my temperature gauge stopped working and we have replaced the engine coolant sensor and the connector and temperature gauge still not working. PLEASE HELP


Could be the thermostat. I know nothing about cars but I noticed my 2000 Grand Prix temp gauge was not going to the normal level. My wife drives this car so I didn't notice it for a month or so. Eventually the Engine light came on. Took it to Autozone and the code came back as P0180... (1) low coolant (2) bad thermostat (3) enginge fuel temp sensor. They used a code reader that was about the size of an Ipod nano.

Coolant was okay, so took it to my mechanic. His netbook sized computer showed it was the Thermostat. He reset the codes and the temp guage went back to normal. Was short on $40 for the fix at the time, so I parked the car and promised to bring it back in 3 days. Went out and checked the car a day later at 25 degrees outside without starting the car... gauge still sitting at the normal level. No question it's the thermostat. That car will not be driven again until T.stat is fixed in 2 days.

Heater quit


Thermostat regulates coolant temp so that the engine doesn't run too cool, It has no effect on the heater temp once the engine has reached operating temperature. Check that the hoses running from engine cooling system to the dashboard are not blocked, bent or broken. (Actually if broken, engine would lose all coolant fluid, and you would notice the mess). Check that the heater switch is doing its job, and actually activating the heater. All that said, If your car happens to have NO thermostat, engine will never reach a normal temp, and the heater will not work.

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Hi guys,


sounds like you have some bubbles trapped in there somewhere. try bleeding the cooling system by letting the car idle with the radiator cap off. when the engine reaches operating temp the thermostat should open, and you should see a drop in coolant level. top it off, and wait to see if more air bubble come up, and repeat until you;re satisfied that there are no more air bubbles left.
