Question about 1987 Volvo 740
I have a 1987 Volvo 740 .The transmission will not shift to 3rd or 4th until it warms up ( about a mile of driving ) . It doesnt have an electic or vacuum module and I am completely new to Volvo's . Could it be the type of fluid ? Vacuum problem ?
Thank you for any tips you can provide , Sean
Run the engine til hot, check the transmission fluid... If it is dark/dirty red and smells bad, it needs to be changed. If it hasnt been changed in your knowledge in the last 40,000 miles, change it anyway. If that doesnt fix it and the fluid was very smelly even after u changed it and ran it for an hour on the road, the trans may have to be rebuilt. There are some treatments you can add and many do work well, so go to autozone or Napa and check em out. I would recommend high mileage additives anyway if the mileage is high as you'll get more life out of the transmissio...hope that helps...if so rate me..
