Questions About 1983 Volvo 245’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volvo's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Volvo tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 245 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my 245 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Volvo 245 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Volvo's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
