Question about 2004 Volvo S60

1 Answer

Transmission slips, 2nd to 3rd

We have a 2004 Volvo S60 w/automatic. Transmission slips, seems like 2nd to 3rd. I want to check the fluid level but I think the tranny is a sealed unit. Is this true?

    I had the radiator changed on my 2001 Volvo S60. Now the car will drive about a quarter mile before it slips out of gear. The transmission will not engage again until the engine colds. The transmission fluid level is fine.

No, no such animal. Trans oil needs a means of ck'ing. lokk for a dipstick more to the rear of the engine close to the firewall.

I have a 91 volvo 740 I am having a problem with the transmission possibly. Its an automatic with only about 150k miles. It starts and takes off in 1st and 2nd but is sluggish and feels like its switching...


check the oil level of the transmission
that transmission does have an overdrive relay
that relay may be faulty

get the transmission serviced and if found in bad condition
cheapest fix is
source a good used automatic transmission and have that fitted in


cost of a full rebuild on these transmission is more than the volvo is worth
its a lot of km./miles
sounds like the third /overdrive part of the transmission
is slipping or worn

Where do u check the level


Levels:
Transmission fluid level:
The transmission dipstick tube looks like a slightly large oil dispstick tube. It is located near the firewall on the drivers side.
Set parking /emergency brake.
With engine warm and running, pull dipstick and clean off with rag. Insert disptick and pull out. Check fluid level.
To add transmission fluid, use the same dipstick tube and a kitchen funnel (good time to purchase a new funnel for the kitchen). Auto stores also sell "special" funnels with a short rubber hose attached to the end.
Not all transmission fluid is the same. Purchase only the one made for your vehicle (Volvo?)
I hope it was the transmission fluid level that you needed.

My volvo 2003 s60 transmission slips when the car warms up. I live in Nevada. What to do?


I'm assuming you have an automatic trans. So the first thing is check the transmission fluid. To do this have car warmed up, idling, and sitting level. Pull out the transmission dipstick and check level, add if necessary. Also check and see if the fluid has a burnt smell. If the fluid was low and you added fluid road test and if it still slips, and/or the fluid had a burnt smell the transmission needs to be serviced or overhauled. To have major transmission work done go to a good transmission shop, unless you have a lot of mechanical know how and experience I don't reccommend trying this one on your own. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Yes....check your fluid level. It sounds low. Does it do it in a turn when you step on the gas as you are turning, slip?

Sounds as if a synchronizer is going out in 3rd gear, or 3rd gear maybe stripped. I would get it checked by a tranny (transmission) shop before it ended up costing you more money. There is a possibility that there may be some shavings on that gear as well, which would just need cleaned.
