Aftermarket seat covers for 850

Hey everyone, I have really nice shape cloth, manual heated seats in my 850, and I’d like to keep them that way. I’m not wild about the feel of the fabric so I was looking at basic pleather or other more slippery all-weather fabric covers at Wal-Mart, Advanced Auto etc. Can anyone recommend a decent...

Re: Confirming PCV compatibility (850 vs V70) Topic is solved

@erik - I've googled left and right to try to find different images of the port on the two different oil traps but I cannot locate them. If I didn't need my car right away, I wouldn't mind taking the 850 parts off, comparing and test fitting, and then ordering anything that doesn't seem like it will...

Confirming PCV compatibility (850 vs V70) Topic is solved

I bought a PCV kit from FCP for my 98 V70 n/a and installed it 1 year ago. I have since pulled the parts and have them sitting here, hoping to reuse some of all on my 96 850 n/a. Called FCP this AM about another order, and was talking about the interchangeability of parts from the two sets. They tol...

Re: 1996 850 - P0300 & P0302 + flashing CEL

Thanks Erik. I am in the process of ordering a complete tune up kit from FCP: new Bosch cap and rotor, new BG plug wires and new Volvo spark plugs. The cap and rotor from my 1998 are pretty much just as bad so no reusing them. With the old BG wires its still starting rough but idling fine now, but a...

Re: Car won't start, worked yesterday. 2000 V70 manual

Not sure if this helps, but does a manual have any sort of PNP switch or any type of switch that kills current to the starter if it malfunctions?

Re: 1996 850 - P0300 & P0302 + flashing CEL

You want all the metals parts on the cap and rotor to be shiny and new, like Madonna. Use a knife and scrape them clean , wipe out moisture and oil, clean with brake cleaner and get it dry. I actually didn’t see too much oil in there, but I was not impressed with the other things I found. First of ...

Re: 1996 850 - P0300 & P0302 + flashing CEL

If you're going to wait to replace the cam seal, buy one from FCP or another online vendor. That's your best bet anyway. And only use Corteco (or Volvo) brand cam seals. Also inspecting the cap is a good start but go the extra 10% and inspect the cam seal itself. And put it back in if its blown out...

Re: 1996 850 - P0300 & P0302 + flashing CEL

After doing some more looking around and thinking about this, I noticed that there is a damp coating of oil around the top cam cover near the distributor cap. I now suspect that the intake cam is probably leaking and after learning that cyl 2’s wire is at the bottom of the cap, it’s beginning to mak...

1996 850 - P0300 & P0302 + flashing CEL

Hello, I have been trying to chase down some intermittent misfiring in my 96 N/A after warmed up. I bought the car from a frustrated PO who had been chasing the problem also and he had other cars and wanted out on the Volvo. He replaced the igniter, distributor cap and wires with purple “Wired for L...
