Question about 1999 Volvo S80
When i switch to D and accelerate the car doesn't move, only the rpm goes high. In manual mode it only works on 3rd and 4th. The R (reverse) works without any problem.
Thank you for any help.

I think when you push acselerator on D you here some very low noice from the gearbox like "tstststs" :). It means that something in your gearbox is burned out, there is a lot of reasons why it happend. First: The oil in the transmission is old. and second .... the 1999, 2000 volvo cars has the same problem, these cars main radiator and gearbox radiator is the same (If you see the hoses coming from the gearbox goes to the main radiator) there is a lot of events when this main radiator fails inside (you can not see it from outside) and it starts transphare water into gearbox. The second reson is very good reason (I think so) it maybe in electronics maybe the SELECTOR (part in the gearbox whitch says the computer that you had switched to D position. This is my opinion becouse i have the 2000 volvo S80 too and had the problem with my transmission.
Good Luck my friend and wish to solve your problem without any troubles
