Re: Delayed start when cold.

The last couple of winters my 93 850 had been reluctant to turn over when the ambient temp was in the lower teens F. I knew the battery was okay. Last summer, I cleaned up the ground terminal behind the left side headlight and the negative connection to the block, and rebolted them with a dab of ele...

CV Axles - accurate fitting CV axle boot Topic is solved

I found the best place to get the most accurate fitting cv axle boot (that I could find) is Advance Auto (owns WorldPac distributor). You can order from your car's VIN. The boot I repaired with GKN/Lobro fit perfectly on the axle shaft (small end of the boot), I did have to stretch it more than I li...

Re: 850 rear bumper bracket bolts

I bought mine a couple of years ago from Tasca Ford. They had the complete set of bolts for brackets-to-chassis and bumper to brackets, as well as the brackets for post 93 850's, which are the same for both sides. For the 93's, the brackets are different for each side and only the right side was ava...

Re: Volvo 850 T5-R on wheelers dealers

If you buy a used R, isn't it likely to be run hard with lots of engine wear—and everything thereto attached, even if it was fairly well kept up and still looks good? Really, don't people buy a hot rod to run it like a hot rod?

Re: Cold start issues.

Easy fixes are wonderful :) If that doesn't fix it, I agree with above suggestions that the electronic coolant temperature sensor (ECT) is suspect, especially if it has never been replaced. Why the ECT? Others might correct me, but as I understand it, that sensor sends information to the engine cont...

Re: The How "Volvo" is your area? Fun poll

Minneapolis: very Volvo. When I bought my first one, the 93 850 in 2008, there had been 4 or my block. Once I started to notice them, I was seeing them all over the area and still do. 850's are getting scarce but there are still quite a few around, and on up from there.

Re: Water on my front driver side floorboard.

I had this problem with my 93 850 when I first got it. After a deluging rain, there was an inch+ of water in the drivers side footwell. It also flowed under the seat to the back floor. After cleaning out those soft rubber drain tubes (above discussion) it didn't happen again. My theory is that given...

Re: Replacement CV boots for crenulated retainer? Topic is solved

If there's an Advance Auto parts store near you, it might be worth taking your vin number to them as a means of identifying the correct boot made by GKN/Lobro. Advance owns Worldpac, a worldwide distributor of aftermarket parts. Worldpac might be able to get a match for you. You need to order throug...
