Re: 850 Oil lamp, no hot air and oil level ok. Death knell?

Hi All, I was right. I replaced the hose and all is well. No lights. The engine probably got a little too hot and the oil was viscous enough to work its way around things (even with the lucas treatment and heavier oil) to lower the pressure set off the light. Also, the heater is working again. There...

Re: 850 Oil lamp, no hot air and oil level ok. Death knell?

HI, Thanks a lot for your suggestions Lee. My mechanic was very funny, said the oil flow was fine- I saw it flowing great looking in the filler cap hole and he suggested I had sub-par recycled bulk oil from my last change, that oil was probably leaking around worn cam seals and to use new bottled oi...

850 Oil lamp, no hot air and oil level ok. Death knell?

Hi All, I was driving yesterday and noticed the oil light coming on at low RPMs. I smelled oil and pulled over to check the level which was fine. I drove a few miles more and the light started coming on at higher RPMs. There was an light burning oil smell. I noticed smoke and a sizzling sound coming...

Re: SC-710 no cassette audio & 'EEEE' from CD changer

Here's a great mod for plugging the ipod directly into a volvo stereo- it works perfectly:

Re: 850 Intermittent Starting - Ignition Switch?

Thanks guys. I'm going to check the switch tomorrow and if its working I'm going to suspect the starter and get it replaced. I don't think mine has the PNP as its a manual. As far as oil burning I'd say 1qt/1.5k which is fine. Its been the best car I've ever had and I bought it with 335k mi on it.

850 Intermittent Starting - Ignition Switch?

Hi All, My 850 wagon (now at about 375K miles) has developed an intermittent starting problem. If I turn the key all the accessories and usual dash lights turn on then nothing happens in the start position. Then I'll try it again and eventually, magically it starts and runs as fine as it usually doe...

Re: First Time Doing Rear Brakes

Hi, I did my rear pads and rotors a while back and now regret not replacing my ebake parts (FCP has a kit) as the rear pads tend to bind on my 850 and drag if I use the emergency brake- have to get out of the car and wiggle the cables under the rear wheels a bit to get it free. You might want to rep...

94 850 front window not closing/seating properly

Hi List, The front pass side window of my wagon doesn't seem to want to close properly. The back of the window stays a little lower then the front leaving a gap unless I rock the window closed going back and forth with the switch. I thought the problem was the window track seal felt thing which I re...

94 NA 850 stalls sometimes in the rain

Hi List, I've noticed that my wagon is starting to occasionally stall and hesitate sometimes when its raining. It'll usualy start back up. No CEL/codes. The beahviour kind of reminds me of when the fuel pump relay was going which I replaced with a new one a few years ago. Any thoughts? Thanks in adv...

How do I take out the pass front window?

Hi excellent forum,

Because of messing around with the trim and widow track I need to take out the pass front power window. I have the door panel off and am looking at the greasy rollers at the bottom of the window. How do I safely get the window out?

THANKS SO MUCH in adavance,

Bradford
