Jason, thanks for the feedback. If you look in my first post you'll see i've done just about all that you have mentioned aside from the coolant temperature sensor. Going out of my mind, i've double and even tripled checked the vacuum tree, throttle body, and idle air valve,etc & they all are very cl...

UPDATE

UPDATE! Couldnt get the dealer down any lower, he just rambled about checking the distributer cap and spark plugs and MAF to justify the 2 hours of labor. $160 after taxes. Ordered new rear oxygen sensor from IPD ($130), arrived thursday, installed today (Saturday) and guess what? The car still stal...

UPDATE: Ok, here I am, 3 days and $150 later, and the volvo dealership has finally gotten around to " diagnosing" the 850 stalling issue. According to the "experts" the reason the car is stalling, witout question, is due to a :!: BAD REAR OXYGEN SENSOR . Now, i once again turn to you for your input....

POLL: Which issue caused your volvo 850 to stall?

For 2 ( :!: EDIT: 3) weeks now i've been trying to diagnose & fix my '94 850 turbo (250+K miles) from stalling at low rpm's, i.e. wide turns, stop signs, at idles, etc. The car would keep alive if i put it in Neutral and gave it gas (while holding the brake for good measure :wink: ). At times when i...

CEL Mystery?!

Ok, get ready for this one. My intent on cleaning the pcv system, throttle body, and egr was to obviously enhance the performance and life of the engine. FYI, the CEL has been on since i bought the car 2 years ago('94 turbo 850 2.3l), and always had some "not so serious" codes set (i think MAF or O2...
