Default 95 940 slicktop white race wagoon.

Picked up this 95 940 slicktop white no sunroof sleeper wagon for the kid. 180k, 1500 dollar. One owner, some lady. What a car! Dueling air bags! Cloth interior! Turbo? Ha ha ha..


What's weird is it doesn't have a turbo gauge on the dash is that normal for 95 940?
















Plan is drive it around fix everything and give it to kid when she gets back from France foreign exchange. Has leaky exhaust manifold gasket blown out on number one. And heater core is by passed. That's about it and ohh yeah the strut rod bushings of course..

My '95 has no boost gauge, cloth seats, only driver power seat, no heated seats, no sunroof, etc.

That heater core is a fun job. Took me 8 or 10 hours my first go around.

Heater core took me 8 hours also... never again lol. Looks nice, white is my favorite on these. Factory boost gauge is useless anyway, it just tells you that there is some or none.

95 lost the boost gauge for some reason, dunno why they went that route unless it was just to be able to use only 1 cluster for turbo and NA.

It idles so smooth it's hard to tell it's running. I've done heater core in a 740, I don't remember it taking 8 hours. Maybe the 940 is different. I guess I'll find out.

Other problem the cloth drivers seat one side doesn't move forward or back with the letric thing. Gotta fix that also I guess. At least it's gray so gray leather seat maybe a good fix. There was a real nice one on a 940 at pick in pull few weeks ago. Might have to go check that.

It does have heated seats and they work.

Volvo started to really cut back on the "fully equipped" items in 94-95. My 95 Turbo wagon is fully optioned with the sunroof (glass), leather interior, fog lights and roof racks. MSRP was in the mid to high 30K's.

Looks like a really clean wagon Simon.

Not true, 95s are unique in a lot of ways including the moonroofs.

Update! Blew the headgasket after blowing the plastic heater control valve behind the head in the heater hoses. DAmmit, forgot about that thing. I normally just ditch that. Then drove it from Linton to Scappoose (15mile) after it blew and after I decided to run away from the cracker in the bmw who started after me? So now gotta take head off. Thinking about it almost easier to do that then take exhaust manifold off. For one, you don't have to jack up the car.

Ohh and kid says she coming back next week... Oh boy...

I think maybe get some yellow blue pacific wonderland plates...

Nice! I always loved late model 940 Turbos! Not sure why they all never received no boost gauge. Hopefully the head is salvageable and nothing is too warped.

Okay got the head off, looks okay other then blown gasket. Ditching EGR crud, let me know if you want it. Got it all off without breaking anything.
