Volvo 960 service & repair manual

On this page you can find the complete service and repair manual for the Volvo 960 with 6-cilinder engine (although most sections can be used for the 4-cylinder version, except the engine repair manual: you should use the 940 or 740 service manual in case you’ll have a 4-cylinder engine in your Volvo 960). A lot of sections of the Volvo 960 service manual is the same as the Volvo 850 repair manual since the 6-cylinder engine of the 960 is basically the same as the 5-cylinder engine of the 850 (the only difference is that the Volvo 850 has one cylinder less).

These service manuals will help you to repair your Volvo 960, fix some small things, check airbags and brakes, service the car and how to install or repair accessories and upgrades. Follow the step-by-step instructions of the service & repair manual to maintain your Volvo 960 in perfect condition and your car will last much longer!

  1. Dear Volvo Tips Admin ,

    I brought a RHD “96 960 Executive Volvo 3.0L Saloon 2 years ago from a business friend of mine. When i bought that car , it strike me of the comfortable looks and spacious rear passanger legroom. Well that time the car is in a bad state, i spend much effort to self maintain and repair it . Now here is the problem. I have to pour about 30-50ml of petrol into the manifold to start the car ever time and every morning once the engine gets cold. my foreman said that it has some engine wiring problem. Please advise whats wrong with it.
    My email is charles@greengaya.com or skype me at charleswkpek

    A sincere thanks to Volvotips and hope for your soonest reply.

    Thank You

      Hello Charles,

      I’m glad you’re happy with your 960! It’s a great car and those cars are very nice to cruise with. About your problem: it’s not really safe to pour petrol into your manifold because it could cause a serious fire! Have you checked the injectors and the rubbers of the injectors? It could be the cause of the problem you’re having.

      Best regards,
