Re: 1996 960 slight misfire

Thanks Bill. No codes and the engine does idle at its normal rpm which I cannot remember right now but it wavers about 100rpm from that good idle. I am cleaning out the IAC and then remove and check the gap on the plugs or if they look like they need replacing do that. Any recommendations for a spec...

1996 960 slight misfire

Hi all, I want to check with you on attacking a 1996 960 slight misfire. The car runs great. No problems at all accelerating. What I have noticed though is when at idle, after fully warmed up, you can see and feel the tachometer wavering about 100 rpms. There is no worry that it is going to stall or...

Reinstalling control arm with new bushings and ball joints

Hope all is well for everyone. I am re-installing my control arms with new bushings and ball joints and wanting to know if anyone has any famous last words. I had the bushings installed by my local indy and am just bolting it up. I know that there is some point at which I need to lower it down on to...

Flaky radio antenna connection

I have a bad connection somewhere between my radio and my antenna on a 1996 960. Sometimes it is connected and receiving fm signals clear as a bell. Other times it is just static and receives absolutely nothing. Just static. I am assuming it is the antenna that is disconnecting but it is possible it...

Need tips on changing out control arm bushings

Hi all,

I am getting into the front end of my vastly improved 1996 960 project car and am wondering if anyone has any tips or do's and don'ts about replacing the two bushings on each side of the control arm.

Thanks very much,
Jim Lee

Re: Searching for 960 vacuum leak(s?)

My mechanic is describing the problem to me and all I know right now is that the AC only works at idle and when you accelerate and change the vacuum situation the AC stops blowing. We did not go into it in detail but my assumption right now is that a climate control door is either not opening or clo...

Searching for 960 vacuum leak(s?)

Just curious if anyone can lineup some primary suspects in my hunt for a vacuum leak on my 1996 960 wagon which is making my AC go away when accelerating. I really want to minimize getting into the dash as much as possible. Any likely places that are not too difficult to get to? The 960 is new to me...

Sway bar links and bushings 1996 960 wagon

Just got off the phone with my indy mechanic who said that the front and rear sway bar bushings and links need to be replaced. Called IPD and they say there are no third party makers of the above because these pieces would be only for the 1995-6 Volvo 960. Anyone have any ideas besides the salvage y...

960 rear end rumblings

Still another nagging issue is something that ain't tight which I am pretty sure is coming from the back end of my multi-link 1996 960 back end. I was thinking/hoping/praying it was my shocks but I have replaced those and the noise is still there. The car seems to ride fine but it is clear that some...

Flummoxed on power steering issue

Hi all, Color me flummoxed. I have been trying so hard to get the steering right on my 1996 960. Just bought it as a project and it is harder to steer left than right. It throbs (for lack of a better word) on a long left curve such as you would find on an off ramp. I have replaced the power steering...
