Question about 1995 Volvo 850

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Volvo 850 Turbo. I am currently on a road trip and the car "check engine light" came on after I had kicked down the transmission to pass a slow car. Since then the car has run rough with low power output. The first time I stopped to check the engine there was some smoke apparently coming from the exhaust where possibly some oil had sprayed onto the hot exhaust. Since then there has been no smoke. The car will idle fairly well, but quite rough when put into gear. It will run (kind of roughly) up to about 50mph, but the missing gets worse above that. I'm guessing a clogged fuel injector or fouled spark plug(s) but I need some expert advice ASAP. Thanks ...

You need more oil. Add until it says it is full or in the full range. Also make sure you oil plug is tight on the oil pan.

1995 volvo 850 turbo wagon will not start all of a


You can check 2 things. 1., have someone in the car to turn the key to the start position. Tap the starter with a small hammer and see if it cranks. If it does, replace the starter. 2., have the battery tested as well as the connections to the battery. Corrosion builds and can cause heavy resistance to heavy loads(like starting). These are the 2 most likely causes. Let me know if you need further assistance.

MY 1995 VOLVO 850 TURBO STATION WAGON IS HAVING PROBLEM STARTING. ON THE DASH BOARD AN ARROW IS POINTING TO THE BATTERY. IS IT THAT SIMPLE TO IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM. PLUS THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING FOR A YEAR...


If a car has been sitting for that long then the battery is going to be bad 90% of the time. Get a new battery and put some fresh gas in and you will on the road,.when you go to the parts store have them check the old battery to make sure but I bet that it is bad.

JUST bought a 1995 volvo 850 and the engine light


darh,
Not likely...
Have the fault light analyzed at AutoZone, free. You will be given a number code and a print-out with a general description of possible problems.
Have it done and let us know, via a comment, what was found. We will guide you from there...
It could be as simple as a loose gas cap!
