Question about 1994 Volvo 850
I have a 1994 850 Volvo. When I turn the ignition on the engine will not start. Any suggestion?
Youll need to have someone check the distributer cap and rotor...also when was the last time the spark plugs and wires were replaces? and was this a gradual problem or did it just happen out of nowhere?

I had a simmilar problem with my volvo 850 an engineer ? RAC told me my valves had bent as it was turning over but had no compression ?. I spent £400 having the head done replaced it and after 6 moths same again. Came out one morning not starting turning over but dead not a glimmer .
Then an old guy who was passing said try changing your oil grade ? and squirta a litlle into your cylinders .
I thought well anything is worth a try so I did an oil change and sqiurted some into each cylinder left it ten minutes like he said .
Came back out and with fingers crossed turned the key and she burst into life on the first tunn , seems it's a common fault with the 850 the oil thins drains out of the head and it looses compression , what I want to know where was that old guy the first time around he could have saved me £400 ....Vortash
