Question about 1995 Volvo 960

1 Answer

A Ticking I just purchased a 1995 Volvo 960 4 door sedan for a steal. The care had been sitting for two years. I went over yesterday and started the engine (jumped it) to let it run for a bit and could hear this ticking noise under the hood. Realizing that the car has been sitting for two years,do you think it could be something serious?

It could be the voltage regulator trying to charge a dead battery. (It could burn out if you keep doing this)

Or it could be a lifter noise, rust on the belt pulley from sitting in one position for two years.
Buy a good battery, change the oil and put some fresh gas and fuel stabilizer. It might be nothing serious!

The motor shakes in my 960 volvo sedan why could that be


A shaking engine usually is an indicator of an engine missfire. Secondary ignition components are the most common failure (Spark plugs, plug wires, etc..). Less likely, but still a consideration are the fuel system components such as the fuel injectors or filter. Further down the list with a vibration in gear at idle are bad engine mounts. If it worsens with engine load such as acceleration then it is likely the ignition system.
Good luck

Replacing an the engine in 1993 Volvo 960


It's an inline-6, not V-6.
I'd think you could just drop in a 95' i-6 and use the 95' ecu.

Though, I was unaware that there are any changes.. it should have 60-2 on both, as well as camsynch.
