1996 Volvo 960 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Driving in town, car's dash lights all lit up, lost steering, brakes and all power. This happened twice today and once yesterday. Car has 188k miles on it and has been well maintained.
yeah when the car is cold it starts and runs smoothly but after it warms up a few minutes it starts to shake, just curious what causes the shaking cause no check engine light comes on.. thank you for answering..
apparently stuck in Winter mode. Which sensor needs to be replaced?
Jiggling key or pressing and strongly repressing brake will eventually free up shifter.
OK, so I bought my car about 5-6 months ago. Within 1 day had a problem with the transmission - felt like it was slipping, sometimes just staying in low gear. Had a rebuild trans put in. Fine for a little while, than there was a shhhhhh sound after driving about 15 minutes, which would stop if I turned the car off and then back on a few minutes later. Mechanic told me it was probably the computer for the trans. Found another one of those and all seemed fine for a about a month. Shhhhh noise is back and so is the transmission slipping/low gear issue. Have a feeling my mechanic doesn't know how to fix/diagnose this issue. Could there be another electrical issue sending codes to the computer? Incidentally, the previous owner had the transmission replaced with a rebuild also before I bought it I've now been told. Took it to a trans shop and he said it had rust in it from sitting out in the parts yard. I will be taking it to a Volvo shop in the next few days, but would like some advice so I know they are being straight with me. Many thanks!
The constant beeping in my car...how do i make it stop...i understand clearly its an electrical problem however isnt this draining my battery as well??? how do i fix this?? also my dashboard lights dont work can that be fixed too?
however now bringing my car home first of all when i turn the car the engine fan continues to run for about ten mins is that normal?? also theres a constant beeping noise even when the cars nit cranked and ut wont stop plus the radio shorted out..how do fix this??
I've been told it has something to do with the smog system. This has happened 3 times, each time when the gas gauge shows 3/4 of a tank.
The steering wheel vibrates when breaking, but only around 30-35 mph.
my volvo 6silinders after warmup it gets slugeged and smelly with unburnet exaust fumes, Ireplaced two bad ignitors but the problem remains with a little un known vibrant with the engine?
does my car have an o2 sensor and where can I locate it?
Getting on the freeway check engine light started flashing. Engine started running rough, with poor acceleration. When accelerating, can feel engine shaking. Idle surges. Valves tapping loudly. All symptoms occurred very suddenly. Car had no issues, idled smooth and ran quiet then boom.
i am geting water mix with oil and car is over heateing
We changed the head and cams. The motor is now running rough and the #1 spark plug is wet. we dont have the correct voltage at the cam sensor and the cooling fan dont turn off.
