Question about 1997 Volvo 960

1 Answer

1997 Volvo 960 6 cyl - Started running rough when I got on the freeway. Up until then it had been great. Very Smooth. I have a check engine light that is flashing. The car idles rough up to about 1900 rpm. Then it smoothes out. The exhaust has no smoke, but smelled rich. I putgas and oil treatment in and changed the spark plugs. Problem is still there. Any ideas.

Check wiring harness to fuel injectors where it runs through intake manifold - these chafe through and cause injectors to stay on or off. Also check engine grounds. 2 at back of head near firewall and one at drivers side engine mount (almost impossible to see)

What are the probable causes of recurrent DTC P0302?


Check the compression on the cylinder. Compare it to specs and to the other cylinders. If the compression is too low, it can cause misfiring. Low compression could be due to piston ring wear, cylinder wall wear, or improper valve seating.

'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.

My volvo 960 1997 wagon at times won't start. when I try to start it, it's like the battery is completely dead, but the battery is fine. what is making it do this ?


Depends on your definition of completely dead.
Do the lights work, but no crank ?
Can you jump start the car ?
A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery, the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch, along with the ground connections to the engine.

    Check engine lite is on:1997 volvo 960 p0705 transmission code


    Just because your Check Engine light came on doesn't mean there's something wrong at all. Various Mechanical functions are timed by the Manufacture to signify Servicing required.

    Sometimes they're set at 50K miles or more, when the light starts going on, all you have to do is take it to an Authorized Service Shop and they Reset the timer. Most places won't even charge you for doing it unless they find something wrong.
