Questions About 1992 Volvo 960’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • What can I tow in a Volvo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your 960 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system.

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.
