Someone told me that I can replace 2.9L V6 in my 1993 Volvo 960 with a 2.9L V6 out of a 1995 Volvo 960. I have also been told that it isn't a straight swap and that there are a few things that need to be done to ensure the success of the transplate. One item mentioned was the flex plate; the flex plate from the 1993 needs to be used with the 1995 engine to ensure the ECU doesn't crater.
What are all of the secret handshakes, if any, that one needs to know to replace 1993 2.9L V6 in a Volvo 960 with a 1995 2.9L V6.?

the plug that goes into your thermostat housing may be bridge causing the fan to stay on . its a quick fix when the sensor goes bad most people do it . check thermostat housing for sensor attatchment and see if its bridged

Thought I would give you a few comments as an owner of two 1993 Volvo 960s, one in Texas (summer car) and one in Sweden where I live. My Texas 960 thumps as I accelerate. It can be the center drive shaft bearing that sits in a rubber holder. You can check it by putting your car on a lift and grab hold of this center joint and see if it is loose.
Or the noise can come from the front exhaust pipe vibrating and hitting the frame (symtom). Can be that the motor mounts are weak and worn out (problem). Best check is to put the car on a lift and have someone start the engine and check to see how much the engine vibrates. Look for scuff marks on the exhaust and frame. I will do the same on my 960 and will report back.
Remember this, 70-80% of the faults you can see or feel. Bad contacts due to corrision or just loose connections are very common.
error definitely some issues with the early six-cylinder timing belts. There were some updates, including a dampener for one of the cams. See if you can get copies of the service bulletins for your engine. I think the belt may also be somewhat wider on the later engines. DO NOT use the later interval.
