Re: hardly running 850 glt

The marks are a bit tough to see. On your '95 it likely looks like this: DSC02612.JPG If you zoom in on the picture you can see the tiny notch at the rear of the sprocket. But it may look like this: GEDC1002.JPG On that style there are two tiny notches and the timing mark on the oil pump gets center...

Re: hardly running 850 glt

It sounds like you are unsure of the timing but it is certainly easy enough to check by lining up the marks to see where you are. Line up the crankshaft mark and then check the position of the camshaft marks. If they are off then you need to go through compressing the tensioner again and reinstallin...

Re: 1995 Volvo 850 dash lights come on car stops

I am questioning the diagnosis. Having no compression on all cylinders is fairly common and it is easily fixed by dumping a teaspoon of oil into each spark plug hole and then putting the spark plugs back in. Crank until it fires and runs. It has been dubbed "lawnmower syndrome" and it typically occu...

Re: Four climate control error codes...Help!

I'm really surprised that you didn't pull a 1-5-1 or a 1-5-2. Since the blower does work when hooked up to battery it points to a bad power stage (blower resistor) and that typically posts a code. The ECC is like an elephant and it never forgets any code unless you clear them. I would clear the code...

Re: OBD-1 SHORT!

The OBD-1 button box is has a connector on the bottom of it. My suggestion would be to remove the button box and then take it inside to a well lit area to disassemble it. There are four plastic tabs that hold it together and the outer shell needs to be pulled out at those tabs to get it apart. I use...

Re: Will '98-70's seatbelts & steering wheel fit 96 850?

The seat belt mounts are different between the 70 series and the 850s. They can be modified to fit but it is not a small task.

Re: Wire identification help?

Post back the wire colors, look for a colored stripe when you identify them since many of the wires are a color and then have a different color stripe.

Re: New Axle Stuck in Transmission Topic is solved

That is a bunch, a good bit wider than a chisel. I think I would try a ball joint pickle fork, also used as a wedge and see if that will get it out. I think my pickle fork spreads out at the widest to about an inch. The only problem will be that the pickle fork has a longer tang than a cold chisel s...

Re: New Axle Stuck in Transmission Topic is solved

I use a cold chisel as a wedge. Set it off to the side, offset from the point where the axle extends into the transmission, behind the inner CV housing. From there I use a 4 lb sledge hammer to give it a couple of whacks from below and it will pop right out. How much space is there between the back ...

Re: Cruise control problem 850-95

The manual has an entire procedure for diagnosing and repairing cruise control problems.

After you unzip it see the file named "cruise control system.pdf" and there will be step by step procedures.
