Re: Sources for Catalytic Converter [1997 Volvo 850 GLT]

I did manage to find a few catalytic converters for my 850 on partsgeek with the note "Not legal for sale or use in California and New York" or "Not Legal In NY For Vehicles With California Emissions." Most have this note. If the catalytic converter is illegal in NY maybe those 'delete' videos on yo...

Are you sure FCP 204226 won’t work?
Do you mean FCP Euro ID: 202466 or Part #: DEC-VO93523? This part doesn't come up when I set to my car (found via Google search) and I didn't see fitment info so I contacted FTP and individual told me they don't carry a cat for my car.

Thanks.

Sources for Catalytic Converter [1997 Volvo 850 GLT]

I'm looking for a catalytic converter for my 1997 Volvo 850 GLT (LPT). My current muffler/catalytic pipes have been welded a few times and one of the welds recently split open (the one where muffler/cat pipe come together just behind flat support plate). Spot where pipe is welded to back of cat stil...

Intercooler hose to throttle body [1997Volvo850GLT]

I have a 1997 Volvo 850 GLT that has developed a problem where it stalls when I come to a quick stop. My indie suggested there might be a large leak in one of the hoses. Initially I did not find anything but poking around I discovered that the hose coming off the throttle body (and also connects to ...

Re: 1997 Volvo 850 GLT Coolant Question

The little details matter. That's why I usually try to look at a couple tutorials/videos before I try a job. I don't recall seeing anything on depressing the foam but it seemed to give an extra inch. I thought it was a hard insulation covering until I leaned my arm against it during the heater core ...

Re: 1997 Volvo 850 GLT Coolant Question

Funny thing is my 850 comes 'standard' with a large green bin in the trunk containing a 5qt jug of oil, funnel, transmission fluid (power steering?), brake fluid, distilled water, mixed coolant, coolant, washer fluid, air guage and pump, jumper cables. This is just in case I run into a stranded moto...

Re: 1997 Volvo 850 GLT Coolant Question

Update: I picked up the o-ring set from Harbor Freight. They didn't have one that was a close enough size and they seemed lighter weight than originals. I could not bring myself to install the HF o-rings so I washed off the original ones, played with them a bit to see if they'd fall apart, then rein...

Re: 1997 Volvo 850 GLT Coolant Question

You can also reuse your orings and run water only for a few weeks if you promise to drive at 55 and be aware Then swap them out when you and I do that AC evap core After all the 'you must install new o-rings' warnings from everyone I'm terrified to 'reuse' o-rings. :) Are the HF o-rings good? I'm n...

Re: 1997 Volvo 850 GLT Coolant Question

I'll stop by HF tomorrow. HF HNBR kit has eighteen sizes. I'm looking around web for o-ring size specification for heater core o-rings. I expect snug but not too tight is good enough. Or is it better to use closest fit to o-ring slot in heater core inlet/outlet? I believe seal occurs when heater cor...

Re: Coolant Leak and System Issues [1997 Volvo 850 GLT]

I noticed this old thread and see that I never brought it to closure. The leaking hose I had to replace was about five inches long and located in back of engine on passenger side (As I see Sommerfedt also identified above). This appears to feed turbo. The other metal line runs into block. This was a...
