1987 Volvo 245 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volvo? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Volvo tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my 245 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1987 245’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
