What Does Your Volvo 940 Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Volvo 940 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Volvo 940 transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your 940 isn’t working at all.

1991 Volvo 940 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volvo's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your 940 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 940 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my 940's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volvo 940’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.
