    So what's the problem? When it doesnt want to shift you should have your transmission serviced because it's possible your transmission could be trying to go out and your transmission fluid could be too dirty...if your oil is dark too you should also get an oil change...Transmission servicing just means your trans filter and fluid is going to be changed but you have to take the pan off the trans in order to get to the trans filter...with your oil you just drain the oil from one bolt locted on the oil pan and the filter should be visible to see and you change that also

SOURCE: Volvo S60 Hesitation

Had a similar problem recently where I would press the accelerator almost to the floor before I got a response and when I ran the A/C it was worse. Also my car kept stalling out when at idle. Volvo dealerships are extremely expensive. I took mine to a Bosch service center (more of a mom & pop shop) and the price was more reasonable. The drivability (sp?) problem was the rear oxygen sensor for me. I also had a fuel pressure sensor and MAP (labeled as pressure sensor from Volvo) sensor replaced. The parts are expensive, but it fixed my issue. There is a front and rear oxygen sensor so it could be either. The parts are $219 each. The fuel pressure and MAP sensor are cheaper, but only by about $40. They are not hard to replace though. Once I had the rear oxygen sensor replaced the car was back to normal. I have a 2003 S60 with 97K miles.

SOURCE: Volvo S60 sensor ?

Sounds like an oxygen sensor (there are two). I had a recent problem where I had a rough idle and my S60 continued to stall out. Turned out to be the rear oxygen sensor. After replacement, car idles nicely and car drives normally.

SOURCE: How do I reset the SRS-Airbag SERVICE URGENT Fault

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.


Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

SOURCE: what kind of power steering fluid for a volvo s60

To avoid foaming and get the best longevity from your power steering unit, I would use "Automatic: Volvo transmission oil 1161540-8" which is Mobil 3309. It is a synthetic and will work well.

You really need to see the dealer about this, your SRS system is not turned on until this problem is diagnosed and corrected, NO AIRBAG RESTRAINT SYSTEM.

Is my transmision going out

If it only does this in third gear and no others then your tranny is faulty in that gear. Expensive fix.. I would make sure that your fluid is full and clean before I change the tranny.

My transmission needs service message is on in my 2001 volvo s60 2.5t what could this mean?

If the transmission isn't giving you any trouble, it's probably a reminder that it's time to change the oil and filter. Check in your service manual but most manufacturer's look to have it done around the 60,000 mile range. You should be able to do it yourself but a transmission shop would be able to see potential problems at that time and maybe be able to make a simple fix that could save you money down the road. Hope this helps.
