1985 Volvo 760 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volvo's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your 760 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • How often does my 760 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Volvo 760 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
