1987 Volvo 760 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volvo 760? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. 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.
  • Does my 760's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volvo 760’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Volvo, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
