1992 Volvo 960 Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1992 Volvo 960 based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
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.
