1996 Volvo 960 has low air conditioning flow while accelerating

Posted by on

  • offani Mar 29, 2009

    I have a 1995 Volvo 960 wagon and I have this same Air Conditioning problem. While accelerating, the air flow through the vent is reduced to almost zero and returns when you stop accelerating and the car slows down. Its frustrating.

    When accelerating it looks like heater vents are blowing less and less .. everything return to normal when speed become constant or if I stop ...

    After 10 to 20 minutes .. my IDLE become sporadic, missing usually on 5. Temp gauge shows normal ..but I don't trust it 'cause air blows so hot it is rally annoying. (I have some hissing sound when I turn AC on..under the dashboard)

    When car sit for a while, cools down .. Idle return back to smooth ...

    (checked coils, replaced plugs, ignition amplifier, checked fuel pressure,)

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.

Most of the time it's the vuccum leak under the hood . but more times then not it's the bellows in the dash that open and close the flow door you have to pull the dash sorry

Volvo 960 gle estate self leveling suspenstion 1995 model. car lying low onto wheel arch when not loaded


IF self leveling (gas struts) are faulty,when you come to a stop after driving for about 10 mins,the rear will not have risen to level.(still low).then they will need replacements fitted,they are not that expensive,compared to some air suspension types.(just in case im not clear,the rear pumps itself up AFTER moving off/driving and will settle when stopped for awhile after.)

1995 volvo 960 AC problem


Car has vaccuum leak(s). If you remove the panel under drivers foot area, look to the center area. You will see some vacuum chambers with different color vacuum lines running to them. the yellow one is faulty 80% of the time. Carefully remove it and plug the line itself. you dont need to plug the chamber. this should fix problem, and you wont notice any function lost on climate system.
