1994 Volvo 960 Problems
The front control arm bushings wear out, resulting in alignment issues and squeaking and/or knocking noises from the front end. Worn bushings will require replacement.
The gear position sensor on the transmission may fail, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and/or a no start condition.
Vibration problems from the rear brake rotors are common and require replacement of the pads and rotors, and the installation of special shims. The symptoms often occur when the brakes are used heavily from repeated braking, braking from high speeds, and braking while going downhill. The entire vehicle can vibrate and shudder, like it is being driven over train tracks.
The intake manifold gasket will often be a source of vacuum leaks. This will cause a rough idle and the Check Engine Light will illuminate. Replacement of the gasket is required to resolve this issue.
