    requires a special scanner. it is better to let a shop scan it for you and tell you the issue and give you a bid. there will be no way of checking the trans as this is way too early for trans codes. a trans shop will help you with that part of the repair.

    It's a little difficult to find a scan tool for your 1993 volvo, it's too old. Better to know the obd port type of your car.

    No scan tool is needed for this car, you can read out the codes manually. Here's some info:
