Re: 1996 850 Turbo Wagon White

Great looking 850!

What kind of paint did you use? I looked through your posts and couldn't find any - looks like it works well.

Re: 1995 850 Turbo Wagon - $500 Adventure

I've been busy getting my self setup for school in Florida and I'm glad Acknar (the owner of that fine 850) is keeping this thread up. That is one clean engine (especially the valve cover)! Looks just like the one I found. The bumper cover is really not so rare for the fact that there are visible te...

Re: 1995 850 Turbo Wagon - $500 Adventure

Bags519, I hope you did well. I think we got lucky today. Today we found a donor car - same year and engine, with slightly more miles. It was the only Turbo 850 on the entire lot. http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n51/Osirys/20130623_102743.jpg We freed the engine in just an hour and a half. Not to...

1995 850 Turbo Wagon - $500 Adventure

This is what my friend recently bought - a 1995 850 Wagon, Turbo, with 190k miles on the clock... with a "blown headgasket." Here are some pictures from the fun - the beginning of the adventure. The car itself - body is in fairly good shape. http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n51/Osirys/20130617_173...

1995 850 Turbo Motor Mount - Tips...

With a friend, I did my motor mounts in my 850 Turbo. Along the way I learned a lot (like the fact that some write ups on 850 motor mounts may have been completed on non-turbo cars or cars that are unlike your own.). The passenger side motor mount: - You may have to jack the engine up higher once yo...

1995 850 Sun Visor!

Yeah, not your normal thread - my mom broke the sun visor... off. I went to pull a part and found a nice one to replace it with. I got the screws off but I was unable to find where to unplug it. After a few minutes of careful examination, I tugged on the wire to try to get some slack and the plastic...

Re: 1995 850 Turbo No-start

It lives! It was indeed the pump. But I'm still replacing the relay. Later I did the timing belt/pulleys/tensioner with a friend. You'd better believe I kept referring to MVS! Although, I kept having to tell myself "I like my 850. I like my 850. I like my 850." Front wheel drive... man. Edit: Also, ...

Re: 1995 850 Turbo No-start

I did fail to check the fuel pressure at the schrader valve because at the time I did not have a torx 25 to gain access to it. Later, however, a friend and I did check the electrical signal from the relay back to the fuel pump with a tool that emitted a sound whenever it received power. It buzzed fo...

Re: 1995 850 Turbo No-start

Well I ended up calling AAA and got it towed across the street to the dealership I work at. Once I got it parked, I hopped in and turned the key to "on" and noticed there was no fuel pump noise. I looked at the fuse for the fuel pump (number 3 I think) and it was not blown. I will check the schrader...

1995 850 Turbo No-start

Hey all. This morning I was making a left turn into the Waffle House across the street from work and had to gas it to prevent from being hit. I go in and get my food, 5 mins later I come back out and my car turns over but it won't crank. The battery is good, plenty of power to get it going. The car ...
