Does this car have the traction control option? If the check engine light is on, you can go to Autozone and they will put it on the scanner to see if the ATR is working properly. But most of the time when the car will go for a while when it is cool, it is the clutches in the transmission are worn out. The reason why is when the transmission fluid is cool, it is thicker. When it warms up it gets thinner and pumps through the valve body much easier. Causing the transmission to slip. And eventually quit pulling the car. So more than likely the transmission is bad. But if the check engine light is on then it would possibly be a relay or sensor. I hope that this helps you. I know that it is not good news. And I am sorry. If you do have traction control then the possibility of the traction control system causing the problem then, for sure your check engine light will be on. And like I said. Autozone will tell you what sensors or relay is malfunctioning FREE of charge. Good Luck!

I suggest check and scanned the TCM (Transmission Control Module) for any fault code there; before to buy a new trans.

Keep us updated.

'97 volvo 960, Orange W-mode arrow blinking, then lost power. What is wrong?


The usual cause of this is a bad PNP switch or gear position sensor.
The "W" is flashing because the transmission control module is stuck in the Winter mode. If you are not familiar with sensor, I suggest you go and have the transmission codes read and reset to begin with and then post back the results.

How to check trans fluid 96 volvo 960


Look way down just behind the throttle body intake assembly, low on the drivers side near the firewall and below the brake fluid container. You'll see a square yellow dipstick which doesn't have a handle on it. It which accepts a 3/8 inch drive extension: stick the socket extension on it, reach down and depress the hold-down clip, and pull it out. It is sometimes easier to reach from the side of the car, reaching down low. Or just reach down and pull it out. You'll need a long funnel to put fluid in. Be sure that the car has been driven 15 minutes or so, stop, move to and stop in each gear about 5 seconds, and back to park. Check fluid level. Don't overfill by even a small amount.

1996 Volvo 960 has low air conditioning flow while accelerating


Faced similar problem. Open up the dash, change all the 4 vacuum bellows and the 2 vaccum hoses connected from the firewall to the bellow on the driver's side. Also replace the 2 valve in the hood which are connected into the firewall. Problem of losing air during acceleration solved.
