Re: '96 850 Idle Issues

Here is a broken line I found (pictures). Off the back side of the air box. Where does this one head to, and how do I go about replacing it? http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n51/Osirys/P7240003.jpg http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n51/Osirys/P7240004.jpg The broken line was lying behind the air ...

Re: '96 850 Idle Issues

Well the technician never showed up yesterday and we were so busy I never had a chance to examine my car.

I'm going to replace the fuel filter today.

'96 850 Idle Issues

Hey ya'll. Recently over the past month or so, my 1996 850 (non turbo) has been smelling as if it is running rich. Over the past week it has been idling roughly after cranking it up. While driving under constant slight acceleration, it seems to lose power as if you've taken your foot off the throttl...

PDF for 95/96 850's

I was googling to find out what a certain light was on my dashboard as it was coming on when I made turns and went up hills (was the coolant level light). I found that information in what appears to be a very nice PDF file that gives codes, how to test various things on your 1995-1996 850 and just g...

Re: Recharge AC 1996 850

The clutch definitely engages. When it was not engaged, the pressure was (IIRC) around 40-50lbs. When the clutch did engage, the pressure went down to around 25lbs. I can try to put more refrigerant in the system and see if that fixes it. I'd be lying if I said I am comfortable with shimming my comp...

Re: Recharge AC 1996 850

Thanks for the help JRL, and sorry to resurrect this thread, heh. It is late June now and in Georgia it is quite hot. After some minutes searching, I found the instructions on how to readjust the clutch in this thread: http://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=30543&p=138406 However, t...

Recharge AC 1996 850

A friend and I recharged the AC system in my 1996 850 earlier today. The pressure for the low side was around 25psi when we finished (which was after letting the car run with AC on and off and letting the car sit still while its off for about 10 minutes in each condition). Also, at 25psi, the compre...

Re: Volvo 850 quality suspension parts?

I had to replace my driver's side lower control arm+ball joint 1.5 years ago and I forget what brand it is, I want to say Bilstein. It has been doing fine and if I remember right it cost me a little over $100USD. Fortunately I work at a Ford dealership so it didn't cost me much to install. I have be...
