It is on the left rear area under the hood, down low, between the motor and the steering column. The transmission dipstick should be yellow plastic and has a 1/2 inch square hole in the top. Insert a long handled 1/2 inch breaker bar into the fitting in the top of the dipstick, use a two-foot long 1 inch wooden dowel to push back the spring clip holding the dipstick in place, and pull out the transmission dipstick with the breaker bar. You will need a length of 1/2 inch tubing afixed to a funnel to add tranasission fluid. I highly recommend changing the transmission oil often to protect the transmission. Be sure to pump all the old fluid out and not just drain the pan. See Brickboard.

1996 960 volvo trouble code 715


That trouble code is the input speed sensor. It is bolted on externally. If you have had any recent work in the area directly above the trans axel, someone may have unhooked it. It is located at 12 o'clock right about the middle of the trans.

A good diagnostician with a scanner can hook up and drive and be able to see the impulse from that sensor. It can be replaced without a major amount of work, however it is a little hard to see. (I think you will find it under the cooler lines, but it has been a few years since I worked on one.

Hope this helps.

Radio will not power on


I had an identical problem, but i fixed it with a dew fuses, it turns out that these volvos have 3 different fuses for the radio, there are two inside the car in the panel, and the third is under the hood just behind the battery. See if any of those fuses are bad, if all the fuses are good, check the connections behind the radio, i had to pry the connections to make them fit better on the back; if none of this works, then its most likely a bad radio or faulty wiring...

1996 Vilvo 960


you have to get under the car on the drivers side. There is a dipstick, but it's very short and if you do manage to reach it from the top your gonna burn yourself.

Of course have the engine warm and on a level surface when you check it.

It will be a yellow dipstick on the drivers side.

1996 Volvo 960 has low air conditioning flow while accelerating


Faced similar problem. Open up the dash, change all the 4 vacuum bellows and the 2 vaccum hoses connected from the firewall to the bellow on the driver's side. Also replace the 2 valve in the hood which are connected into the firewall. Problem of losing air during acceleration solved.
