SOURCE: transmission

Well ,

If the fluid is dark, burnt , or has metal or dark clutch material.
The transmission has a burnt up clutches ,the sun shell in most cases with this transmission is the cause of failure inside.The sun shell holds the clutches and steels in place . When the sun shell breaks the transmission is loosing pressure inside. Then the clutch are not engaging . This is why the transmission is slipping This is a very common problem with this vehicle. The sensors/ soleniods are located in the valve body of the transmision. There are some cases where a transmission shop can tighten the sun shell or bands. This could be a temporary fix, The best thing to do is have the transmission replaced or rebuilt at your local transmission repair shop

SOURCE: transmission will not go into reverse

There is no sensor. You either have a bad Reverse band or a bad overdrive direct clutch. You could pull the pan and check and adjust the reverse band. But you would have to disassemble the trans to replace it. If the band is o.k. then you might have a bad overdrive direct clutch. To replace this you would only have to remove the overdrive unit from the rear of the transmission. This is all considering that 3rd gear works fine.

SOURCE: My Volvo D5 has a error code P0087 Fuel pressure

There are a few things that could cause fuel pressure:

  1. Clogged fuel filter
  2. Clogged fuel injectors
  3. Bad fuel pump
  4. Leak in fuel rail
You should start with the fuel filter as this would be the most common cause. It would be a good idea to check the fuel rail first, although it's less likely to be the problem if you do find a leak, it would tend to eliminate the other conditions. Best of luck.

The transmission has gone bad and all I can say is that you need to replace it.

Good luck.

Reset radio

Try keeping your key in the ignition and click it on the first click let it stay in there for about 3 hours or until it goes back to code sometimes it may take longer. You can drive that long too but your car can not be cut off. Hope this helps for you.

VOLVO s90 1997 clicking noise from wheel area

If it happens only on turns then its the outer axle cv joint.. If it happens all the time probably something stuck in a tire. Either way have the suspension visually inspected by a technician as soon as possible.

Volvo S90 1998, trying to find service/repair manual.

Here's the answer. Contact a Carquest Auto Parts store(worked there 13 years). They have a division known as WorldPac. They can get you what you need. It will be the best repair manual you could have. It will be a little higher than Chilton, but it will be worth it. And Worldpac can get you any part for your car and they're all OEM parts at 1/2-2/3 cheaper than the dealer, and they're Volvo parts. I'd go with them. Good Luck.

How do I reset the check engine light on my Volvo S90?

That code is for the engine coolant temperature sensor. You need to have a look at the connection to it, if it's good, replace the sensor. This is an important engine sensor, they are usually mounted somewhere near the front of the engine in the water jacket, exposed to coolant flow so make sure the engine is cold when you change it.

I got code 116 on my 1998 volvo s 90 and my engine light is on

I do believe this is the ECT sensor code. This sensor for some reason only on the 960/S90 causes the car not to start. You will need to replace this ECT (engine coolant temperature sensor). On this model I think it is on the back of the head, a gray D shaped 2 wire connector against the firewall. If that is not case, then your sensor is located at the engine side of the upper radiator hose.

1997 Volvo S90 will not turn over, electrical power but no click

I can almost guarantee you that the gear position sensor is bad. I've replace 30 or 40 of these on 960's for these very same complaints! If you check the codes for the transmission, it will give a 3-1-3 or P0705 code. You will however need a code reader to check this on a 1997 model.
