Re: 1995 Volvo 850 non turbo OBDII Code PO179

Did you clean your MAF sensor; it may be possible that the output signal from it is out of cal (it first developed in the low range, and now at WOT); the ECU will therefore account for more air than the engine really gets, and you actual Fuel to Air Ratio would be rich.

Re: 1995 volvo 850 up arrow issue?

Thank you for the valuable info and the link to the site. My Haynes manual was dead wrong. I need to get a decent OBD2 testor. Any model or brand you recommend?
