Question about 1988 Volvo 760
I have a 86 volvo 760 turbo with over 183,000 miles, and recently it has trouble acclerating on hills, and some uneven surfaces when it the car will almost drag itself to the top of the hill and then suddenly shift into gear downhill. When l tried to acclerate, black smoke was coming out of the exhaust. On the interstate the car would not go any faster than 50 mph, the engine would stall if pushed. Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

i wouldgo to the garage and get them to look at it.
It sounds like its near the end of its life and 1 of your cylinders may have broken.
Does it make a different sound?
You may just need a new cooler or most likely a new battery.

SOURCE: Oil type for a Volvo S-40 turbo
Hi, I read your question and you dont have to worry about the convencional oil at the moment, but sinthetic oil is higly recomended and it realy help to protect not only the turbo but the engine too ,allways try to use the same brand and type of oil ,Mobil 1 is a great choice but you can do your own research.....good luck.......

it sounds like you c.v axles are grinding this is normal where and tear on a car that is front wheel drive the best way to check and be sure is turn your wheels on way and drive in a circle if you hear a clicking noise then that's your problem i would take it to your local shop to have them replaced if you do not here a clicking noise get back to me and we will go from there
