If you are technically minded buy a bluetooth OBD2 plug and download Torque Pro Android app. This will allow you to reset the codes yourself and ensure there is a genuine fault and not an intermittent issue. Cost was around $30AUS.

The tranmission is shared with the Toyota Cressida 82-87 model (that's the A43DE in Toyota speak if yours is a AW30-43) Yours is either a AW30-43 or AW30-40. Go to Wikipedia to get the equvalent of yours. Try Aisin Warner on Wikipedia. No need to pay top dollar at Volvo wreckers when a Toyota one will fit (just swap the bell housing and switches/controls) Remember the labour to swap is only three hours just make sure you totally flush the old fluid out (7.5 litres) & new front & rear seals go on the replacement gearbox and that the extension housing bushing is OK. Good luck.

I would change out the transmission fluid and put some transmission additives in there, see how the transmission shifts after that. Worse case have the transmission rebuilt.
The struts are about $150 apiece plus labor. If the car runs fine besides those two problems I would fix it and keep it, it's alot cheaper than a car payment.
