Are you saying that you have 12 volts to the coil but no spark out/if this is the case first make sure the cam is turning by looking in the oil cap hole,next yes the cam sensor is a common failed part and can cause the problem, you also have the crank sensor just below that and it would not hurt to replace also

What is ignition circuit, where does it locate in 1994 volvo 850?

Did you check all plugs for fire? If fire on some , not others, coil pack bad. If no spark at all cylinders, I would lean toward a distributor cap and button.

I have a 93 volvo 850, it starts fine, but going down the road it chugs and tries to stall, I have to keep my foot on gas and brake to keep it from stalling at stops..My Husband replaced the fuel filter...

It definitely sound like a fuel starvation problem. Your hubby is on the right course by changing out the fuel filter. If the injectors are not getting enough fuel pressure from the fuel pump it could cause the condition you discribed. A new pump is fairly pricey but you could get one at a junk yard for far less.

Have you made sure the rotor is turning in the distributor, as this sound like a cambelt failure.
Sorry to bear bad tidings if this is so.
