Question about 1994 Volvo 960
Thought I would give you a few comments as an owner of two 1993 Volvo 960s, one in Texas (summer car) and one in Sweden where I live.
My Texas 960 thumps as I accelerate. It can be the center drive shaft bearing that sits in a rubber holder. You can check it by putting your car on a lift and grab hold of this center joint and see if it is loose.
Or the noise can come from the front exhaust pipe vibrating and hitting the frame (symtom). Can be that the motor mounts are weak and worn out (problem). Best check is to put the car on a lift and have someone start the engine and check to see how much the engine vibrates. Look for scuff marks on the exhaust and frame. I will do the same on my 960 and will report back.
Remember this, 70-80% of the faults you can see or feel. Bad contacts due to corrision or just loose connections are very common.
