The air mass sensor is bad. 960's engine is electronically control and requires no tuning-up. The problem exists due to fuel/air mixture incorrectness.

Could be your cat converter is breaking apart.could be your air flow sensor is dirty. Could even be a dirty fuel filter, plugs or your coil going bad.

1996 volvo 960 cranks and runs but will not idle


Take the fuel line off the fuel rail , or depress the schrader valve on the fuel rail if you have one to see if you are getting steady fuel flow, OR hook up a fuel pressure guage to inspect your fuel system. You may have a bad fuel pump.

The egine died like it was of gas, changed the fuel filter, gas pump, sending unit and it wil not start and the engine still turns over ?


run fault codes and check for cam/crank position sensor. Check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt/chain) check that the immobiliser is operational.

Have a 1994 Volvo 960...sputtered & died with 1/2 a tank of gas. Wants to turn over but sounds like it is out of gas. Replaced the fuel filter, no luck. Battery is new...Please help!


well fuel and spark is all that makes them run,So make sure your getting spark first! if you have spark to plugs then it will be fuel related... 9 times out of 10 if your not getting fuel it will be the fuel pump( in gas tank ) and 9 times out of 10 if you don't have spark its the coil or coil pack( under hood.) but it can be other fuel/spark components bad also...if you can do the work yourself, have a dealer tell you what parts bad(will cost about $100.00 to run a diagnostics on it.) then go to auto-zone,napa,ect. and buy the part and replace.....if you can not do the work yourself then you will have to let dealer or mechanic shop do the work. make sure once you know what parts bad to get a price from 3-different places to get best price......good luck...

Volvo 960 intermitent rough running


sounds to me like you might need to change your fuel filter, i had an Isusu P'up a while back that had a pebble in the fule filter and when fuel would get flowing the pebble would be pushed up into fuel path when fuel stopped flowing pebble would fall so on and so forth, my recommendationis to change fuel filter first

Fuel Sending Unit


You do need to replace the guage sending unit in the gas tank, u must remove the gas tank, this is not really a job for a DIYer.

The fuel pump of 960 is inside the tank attached together with the floater. There is a screen filter attached to the floater which need to be cleaned/changed from time to time. The outside filter is situated under the carriage. To know when the pump about to give problem, there will be a grinding/hissing sound.

1993 960 no start problem


Is there fuel pressure at the fuel rail ? will need a electronic fuel pressure tester. Rough idling sometimes is a indication that the fuel pump is going south , could also be the fuel pressure regulator.
Also , electronically , check the diagnostic plug for codes.
