1996 Volvo 960 Problems

Worn Sway Bar Bushings Causing Knocking From Front End

The sway bar bushings commonly wear out, causing a knocking noise from the front of the vehicle. Replacing the worn bushings should correct this concern.

"No Start" and Check Engine Light Due to Gear Position Sensor Failure

The gear position sensor on the transmission may fail, resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light and/or a no start condition.

Vibration from rear brake rotors are common

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.
