SOURCE: 2005 XC90 T6 AWD making a whirling noise upon acceleration

Add me to the list. Just got back from a Volvo dealership in Chicago and was told the 'winding' noise we're experiencing during deceleration in our 2004 XC90 is due to a failing transmission,so i would suspect the same accelerating. hope all works out for you

SOURCE: reverse is rough, with intermittent grabbing, not

It sounds as if the seals are bad in your transmission and they are allowing fluid to slip past them. This results in the transmission not completely engaging in gear and being extremely slow to shift into gear.

You can try a few capfuls of break fluid in the tranny. This will swell the seals and allow them to seal better. This is not a permanant fix however, this will only temporarily get your tranny working for an undertermined amount of time. I used this fix on a turbo trans 350 and I got about a year of life out of it.

Beyond that I believe you may be looking at a tranny rebuild or replacement.

Could be a catastrophic failure in the mist, especially if the front side of your driveshaft falls while cruising down the road and then your car pole-vaults itself like an olympian. There are remote audio+video systems that you can install under the car to use as an extra set of eyes and ears to help pinpoint the problem. But, yes--get it looked at quickly.

I'm replacing the shift solenoid in my 04 Buick Rendezvous but I can't find any diagrams showing the location or how to change it out. Can you please help?

Shift solenoids are located inside the transmission behind the valve body. If you have never been inside a transmission before I would advise taking it to a professional. If the valve body is not put back in correctly, more specifically the check balls, the car WILL NOT shift correctly. If you are still interested in doing this I can get you the diagrams and steps you need. However, I will need more information about your vehicle. A VIN # will give me the correct Engine and Transmission combination to help you. Again, I would strongly suggest that you bring this to a transmission pro.

Location diagram transmission shift soleniod & photo of soleniod.The car stays in first gear to long before it changes.Could this be the problem.

We do not have diagrams of this setup, but the shift solenoids are all one piece or rack of solenoids you could say, they are located inside the transmission attached to the valve body of the transmission, to access them you must remove the pan on the bottom of the automatic transmission.

Car doesnt move when in gear

sounds like it probably needs a transmission. volvo has been warrantying the transmissions in the 6 cylinder xc90's so you may get lucky if you have a t6. take it to a dealership and they may warranty the whole job or they may pay for the new transmission but you have to pay the labor to install it
