Check the PCV System for leaks. IPD has the system in stock and cheaper than Volvo. This is a very common problem.

Idle speed for my volvo 850 too low. needs turning up slightly? when i start the car the idle revs are too low and car cuts out. but when its warmed up idling is fine.


Idol is controled by the computer. You need to run a diagnostic on the vehicle to determine what sensor is going bad. My best guess at this point is throttle position sensor or erg.

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.
