Question about 1993 Volvo 850

1 Answer

My volvo 850 GLT

I have changed the dist. cap and rotor because they was dark brown and some black around the inside and it helped out but it still some times stalls ! Should I change the spark plug wires too ? I also bought pulse plug wires from www.pulsestar.com web site and it has a capacitor in it so what do you suggest ?

The factory plug wires last about 200,000 miles/if the cars runs ok other than stalling at idle and has no check engine light on the the next step is on the drivers front of engine remove the air intake hose and clean the throttle body with carb spray cleaner and remove the idle control valve mounted to the front side of it and also flush it out

    This car timing is the issue because I had one and the timing issue is that it is an interferrence motor in which if you do not change the timing belt every 50 to 60 thousand miles would cause this problem. if you do not change the timing belt on time would destroy some of your valves and piston heads as well !!

If you need the security code, you need to call a Volvo dealer and give them the VIN number, provided it is the same stereo the car came with.  Most dealers will do it for free, if you can't find one, call Boston Volvo Village.

Hello,
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.
