All of these are built to isolate vibrations while absorbing and maintaining torque application. Changed broken engine mounts some difference. Indeed - can't see any downsides, only positives. They may unfortunately tell you that the valve body has an internal leak causing poor shifting performance. Now that most of the scary stuff is behind us, we can focus a little more on the cars themselves.
Very clunky shift from 1st to 2nd. Flush the fluid with a and have the transmission control unit reset. Please don't chose a make because you like the colour, because you will look silly when someone asks you questions about the car you don't own. I would've never guessed an 04 v70r had issues. I tried to pull with a plier. Unfortunately the car has stopped twice, always due to transmission problems: 1. The result of all this is an aching back, nothing more.
Complete shipping and return policy information can be found in our. Various years got various upgrades like brushed nickel accents in the air vents, around the radio and shifter and on the stalks etc. Honestly if it has been banging around that hard for that long, I assume the transmission may be coming towards the end of its life. They then replaced the map sensor and breather box. It smoothed out the ride, but continues to flare. It was the cheapest fix.
Note the picture below, use a 10mm bolt to act as a fulcrum against a screwdriver to aid in compressing the piston and cover. Remember you are only tightening into transmission aluminum so don't overdo it, use torque wrench if you are a newbie like me. It helped a bit but next year it got worse. I tried doing this today, without success. If it inflates, you have pressure. This definitely sounds like an engine mount to me.
Should I just not drive it until I can get to a Volvo dealer to have it serviced? I have a 2003 V70 with 144K that iPhone for 10 years and 100,000 miles and have had no issues with transmission. It turned out to be quite a task working in such a tight area and it took me ages to just remove the clip. There have been mulitple porblems with these transmissions and volvo has released tech notes to address each one. Through the decades Volvo became synonymous with safety, owing in no small part to ad campaigns in the 70's showing Volvos stacked six high or crushed into cubes with perfectly functional cabin doors. Bumpers — instead of the large black plastic, the new bumpers are more one-piece and body-colored. I've heard good things about Volvos but I know absolutely nothing about them.
Afterwards, sometimes when the car shifted from 2nd to 3rd, or from 3rd down to 2nd when slowing and braking , the shift would be harsh and clunking. So if you have a '01-'02 tranny with hard shifts in or out of third gear, do yourself a favor and upgrade the servo cover. My questions — 1 Is it better to buy a rebuilt or an after-market or a Volvo valve body? How does the 55-51 differ from the 55-50? This took me 12-13 quarts. What did you use more specificly? There was some light glazing on the valve stem photo presumably from hot fluid which I am sure would affect the valve movement? Interior: Center console is slanted and more streamlined, with a cover over the cup holders. Would too much fluid cause a problem? Good post, I'm thinking of doing this operation.
I would like to share my experience with this transmission. Once off, it was very straight forward until I had to replace the new cover. The only other problem I have besides that is a leaky vacuum air pump. Your Aisin Warner transmission takes around 7. A bit late with this but I thought relevant for future reference. Locate the B4 servo on the back side of the transmission.
Start the engine and with your foot on the brake and the vehicle stationary shift the gear selector from Park, Reverse, Drive, Low with a 30 second delay between each selection. Mine just easily dropped out, no pressure, sounds like yours has some hard rust to contend with, maybe take it to a local independent garage to do and save yourself further stress ; I tried to do this today. Volvo came out with an updated valve body to fix multiple concerns. Some people have had success with this, but more than likely for the S40 anyway you will probably need a new auto trans valve body. Dear Volvotech I realize you wrote this some time ago - but browsing the net I found that I am not alone with my Volvo gerbox problems.
I can't say enough good about Seafoam, it solved my problem. If the original item or suitable replacement part is not available, then this warranty is void. These transmissions really need regular changes to avoid the issues pointed out by other commenters in this thread. Use some transmission fluid to lubricate them. They did a trans flush, software update and it seemed to help. This has the six speed auto. Can you verify the linkage is in good shape by looking at it on top of the transmission and having someone move the shifter? It has a very loud reving sound when im at 60mph on the highway.
