Question about 2002 Volvo S60

1 Answer

My mechanic struggles to get automatic gearbox fix - help

I am from Namibia and bought a second-hand 2002 Volvo s60 from Singapore. The local Volvo Dealer in Windhoek has the only volvo specialised repair centre, but is not prepared to service or repair any volvo that was imported from outside Southern Africa.

My automatic gearbox started to give me problems and I took it to a gearbox specialist, but it seems that he struggles to get it fix - the valve body had been overhauled completely, as well as the torgue converter and so on. The gearbox is know going to be removed for the 3rd time - I think is something with the electronic control from the computerbox that might give problems - is there any sort of checklist that you can provide me with so that I can give it to him to go through the smallest possible thing that can cause the problem.

He told me that the car would change up to 3rd gear - than it is if the 3rd and 4th want to go in at the same time and than it would cut out and try to do the same. I think this guy is sharp on the mechanical repair of the gearbox, but lacks a bit expert knowledge on the electronics. Please help me - I miss my Volvo

Probably its linkage mechanism is dirty, stuck with grit, and needing a lubricant.
Spray some light lubricant, such as WD-40 on the trunk lock. Then use a flat-end screw driver to try to pry the lock back-and-forth. This should free the linkage mechanisms in there and allow the lock to operate.

go tt www.volvocars.com select your region (ie United States). Go to sales&service and click on volvo owners info. you will have to register but all that is required is an email address. Put in your information about year and model car, you can click owners information and should be able to download a free copy of your owners manual. I had to do the same thing for my s60. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Sounds as if a synchronizer is going out in 3rd gear, or 3rd gear maybe stripped. I would get it checked by a tranny (transmission) shop before it ended up costing you more money. There is a possibility that there may be some shavings on that gear as well, which would just need cleaned.
