1990 Volvo 740 Questions & Answers

  • 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 small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 740’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my 740's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volvo 740’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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
