Question about 1996 Volvo 850
The car starts and runes fine in the mornings which have been cool. My drive to work is short so the gearbox doesn't usually heat up a lot. Lately during longer trips the transmission starts to exhibit problems. 1.downshifting harshly during an aggressive stop 2. accelerating away from this sort of downshift is like the gearbox is spinning but not engaged, car moves into gear abruptly and drives as normal 3. The worst seen to date is that the car was in gear on a residential street, warm car, warm day...I could rev the engine, and not really move faster. The car did also shift 1-2..?? Parked car for 45 mintues and drove. Does this sound like a diagnosis can be made quickly? Is this a $100 problem or a $1500 kind of problem? Thanks I have 96 850 wagon that is doing the same type of thing intermittantly. My called me and said that it feels like the car is reving to high and can't get any speed out of the car. Could it be the ECU? Econo/Sport with the Winter Traction button problem? Need help fast. Thanks.
Whtat is happening is the engine temp is too hot and is probally sending a code to trans computer and car shifts eratically tthe normal temp is 180 degrees and if it gets too hot the engins a code to trans computer
