1984 Volvo 760 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.
  • What can I tow in a Volvo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 760’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 760 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 760's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Volvo 760 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
