1991 Volvo 940 Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

The transmission overdrive relay often fails, preventing the transmission from shifting into overdrive

Engine -- Verified

The fuel pump relay may fail resulting in a "no start" condition, the engine will crank over but will not start and run. Checking for proper fuel pressure would be the first step in diagnosing this concern.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

When braking, a loose feeling from the front end can be caused by worn strut rod bushings. Worn bushings will require replacement. After they are replaced the wheel alignment should be checked.

Engine -- Verified

Engine stalling/stumbling problems can be caused by a failing mass air flow sensor.

Drive Train -- Verified

Delayed and/or erratic shifting can be caused by the transmission kick-down cable sticking. Since the oil pan has to be removed to replace the cable, have the shop replace the transmission filter at the same time

what could be the cause of gas getting into the oil? Had the oil changed 1 week ago and it's showing about a quart over full now, unmistakably gas in there. What could it be? TIA.

Oil is leaking out the front of the engine at about 1 quart in 300 miles. Consequently, there is a lot of smoking. THe oil fill cap is tight and the valve cover is tight. This just started recently...

1991 Volvo 940 Reviews

A tremendous driver on the highway, the car gets up to speed fast fast and is smooth at speed, and sports are very forgiving ride around town. The car is heavy and in town driving fuel economy reflects that. Plastic trim/fitments eventually fall apart, disconnect, become the victims of plastic fatigue, etc. and this is the most noticeably sub par aspect of this model/year. Mine has an automatic transmission. It shifts smoothly, and keeps the car's power band in play appropriately under all driving conditions. The car was rated very safe in 1991, although watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBDyeWofcLY for crash info on today's highways.
