Questions About 1994 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. 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 it is. Defying your 960 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my 960 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1994 960’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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.
