What Does Your Volvo 245 Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1985 Volvo 245 transmission problems could include shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Volvo 245 transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your 245 isn’t working at all.

Questions About 1985 Volvo 245’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volvo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 245 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 245 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my 245's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volvo 245’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Volvo. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
