    I do not know whether yours happen after some travelling. It happened to me and the only remedy at that point of time was to siwtch off the engine and let it cools down for about 30 mins. The gear will engaged after that just to allow you to send to your nearest repair shop. I changed to a used one cos the old one is confirmed that there was not pressure at all.

SOURCE: 1996 volvo 960 engine turn off suddenly when I was driving

it may be a fuel pump fault. Cutting out and restarting is a classic sign of a failing fuel pump.

Here in the UK the VOlvo 960 is a 3 litre car (may be a different model to the USA version of the 960) and has 2 fuel pumps. One is situated in the tank and lifts the fuel into the pipeline system. The 2nd fuel pump is located underneath the car alongside the fuel filter underneath the passenger side (UK) and gives the fuel a boost to shove it up to the engine.

To check fuel pressure, find the pipe that goes to the injectors ... there usually is a connector where the metal pipe connects to the flexible rubber pipe. Undo the connector and switch the ignition on ... fuel should spray out at high pressure .. .high pressure .. not small squirts and dribbles.

Fuel pumps are damn expensive. It could also be a sensor at fault - like a crankshaft sensor. The cheapest way to get it sorted is to ask a workshop to identify the fault for you (you can do any work required) - they can check the sensors and electrics on their computer. Changing parts one by one to try and cure a fault can work out damn expensive .... get the fault identified for you first. Its worth the money ..

I think there are still photos of UK Volvo 960 fuel pumps on my website at :

I changed the 4l60e twice in my 2005 Chevy Silverado and it still doesn't shift at all....I checked the pump and it has the correct pressure....what is wrong

Did you consider that the control module may not be commanding it to shift . The E in 4l60 E stands for electronic . Did you check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
Diagnostic Starting Point - Automatic Transmission
Begin the system diagnosis with Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle . The Diagnostic System Check provides the following information:
The identification of the control module or modules which commands the system

The ability of the control module or modules to communicate through the serial data circuit

The identification and status of stored DTCs

The use of the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle identifies the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and the procedure location.
Symptoms When it has been determined through Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle that no DTCs are present, begin symptom diagnosis by reviewing the Transmission Component and System Description . Reviewing the Transmission Component and System Description information enables you to understand the operation of the system. This helps you determine if the condition described by the customer is normal or if a malfunction exists. If it is determined that a malfunction exists, identify the concern by referring to the table Symptoms - Automatic Transmission . The table Symptoms - Automatic Transmission provides common diagnostic categories which relate directly to diagnostic information or procedures.

What is wrong with a 2001 Volvo SD40 1.9t if it gives a code P0700 TCP Mil Request

That means there is an electronic fault in the transmission and the transmission control module has requested the service engine light to come on. You'll need to use a scan tool that can communicate with transmission controller in order to diagnose the issue.

My 960 1996 volvo not seclecting into drive

Since repair in any automatic transmission is way beyond the skills of any home do it yourself mechanic I suggest you find a local transmission repair shop and have them look at this problem and rive the car, they will do this for free in most cases in the hope of getting the job of repairing the problem. If you do need a transmission replaced go for a factory re-manufactured unit from the dealer or from a parts store like NAPA or Carquest, they have all the latest parts and upgrades and are far better quality than the ones you get at discount auto parts stores like O'Riley or Autozone for example. Yes they cost more but you get what you pay for. Get more than one estimate for the price to install the transmission if you get it from an outside source. Hope this helps.

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.

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.
