1995 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.

1995 Volvo 960 Reviews
The Good: Car runs like a top, great engine and transmission, and at 151K exhaust is finally starting to go. Seats are super comfortable.
The Bad: Brakes don't last in stop and go traffic. Steering wheel linkage replacement was worst repair. Rear wheel drive, had to get snow tires to make it driveable. Are they really made in Sweden? The LED's on the radio are about half gone. The leather is cracking on the seats. Rack and pinion replaced around 110K. A/C leak in condenser @ 120K. Batteries every 4 years on the dot.
Bottom line; Getting really cheap miles in a comfortable,safe car that my kid drives to school every day.
just bought a used 960 year 95 i hear a high squeal sounds like the power steering pump but not sure on the drive home the check engine light came on but the car seems tobe running fine. The fan cuts on and stays on awhile after thecar is turned off is that normal? Im going to get the light checked out to see the problem.
