1992 Volvo 740 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volvo? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volvo? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your 740 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my 740's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Volvo 740 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.
