Question about 2004 Volvo S60

Transmission slips when hot

The transmission does not seem to slip if accellerating hard. It only slips when warmed up and gently accellerating. It seems be be isolated to shifting between 1 and 2 gear. the car will begin pulling away from the stop but when shifting to the next gear it will not engage and the engine will rev to approx 3500 RPM before engaging the next gear. It will most often after a period of highway driving that is followed by stoping and gently pulling away such as a stoplight at a highway off ramp.

Transmission slipping


Your tyranny is either low on fluid or getting ready to kick the bucket... one of the signs you watch for is the car Jerks hard when changing gears while cold but seems to be OK when warmed up... this can go on for months... one thing to try asap.. get the transmission flushed... and don't be a lead foot... if she is slipping it's not going to help if you give it more gas... but a lot of the time a good flush will help ( filter gets plugged and the transmission fluid isn't doing its job

Transmission slips after engine warms up


It isn't when the engine gets hot, it is when the transmission fluid gets hot that the slipping starts, due to wear of the clutches and gears inside the transmission.
First, check the fluid level to make sure it is full. If it is low, bring fluid level to full and see if that helps.
About all the owner can do with slipping automatics is trying a transmission fluid and filter change to see if transmission revives and stops slipping. The bottom pan is removed, fluid (about 6-8 quarts) is drained, and a new filter is installed before the pan is replaced with a new gasket, sealed up, and fresh fluid added. Sometimes it helps. Sometimes the transmission is worn too bad to help, and you are left with looking for a replacement transmission.
Check the fluid level first. Good luck.

On a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire, the transmission slips when warmed up but does not slip when it is cold. Any suggestions or solutions?


when cold, fluid is thicker. When hot fluid is thinner. The thicker, the more pressure if can withstand. Try gettings some Lucas transmission fix. if that doesent work, prepare for a transmission rebuild.

2004 ram3500 transmission slippage when warm


Hi, transmission slipping normally does not occur when the transmission is warm, as warm temperatures favor proper working of the automatic transmission systems. Nonetheless, if problems such as, broken transmission bands, gears or torque conversion already exist, then the transmission might slip even in warm temperatures. Another situation may arise, if the fluid suffers from contraction in cold weather and gradually the weather warms up sufficiently, to expand the internal parts and fluids. Then due to cold weather, a small transmission problem might occur. However, the problem may be too small to affect the vehicle. However, warm weather cannot be directly linked to transmission slipping.

I have a p1870 error code what do i need to replace to fix it


Your Trans is definately slipping even though it doesn't seem like it. If this just started, DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT!!!! drive the car in this state, even with the SES light off it's still happening. You WILL have to get a rebiuld if you continue to drive it like this. Here's the deal of EXACTLY whats happening.... and no, an auxillary cooler won't remedy this problem.

(BEFORE SES LIGHT)

#1 - Valvebody gets stuck closed, insufficient tranny fluid to cool transmission.
#2 - Trannsmission gets HOT due to insufficient fluid, and begins to slip (explains lack of accelleration power)
#3 - Computer detects slip after about an half hour of highway speeds and engages the FAILSAFE which applies MAXIMUM LINE PREASURE to push the fluid to the transmission although this does not work due to stuck valve.... MAX LINE PREASURE is actually what causes your harsh 1st-2nd gear shift... before this it SEEMS to run perfectly fine although it's not...
#4 - The First it detects it in a running cycle, the computer just activates the FAILSAFE with harsh shifting WITHOUT the SES light... however the SECOND time it detects it in the next running cycle...then...

(SES)

#5...You get an SES light with the code P1870 (Transmission Component Slipping or 4X4 Transfer box)... PLUS FAILSAFE mode which activates harsh 1st-2nd gear shifting...
#6 ...You turn car off, turn car back on and everythings running fine??? Nope, problems still there, you just resetted your computer which deactivates FAILSAFE mode until it detects another slip....

You will COOK your transmission if you continue to drive it like this... Trust me I have a 97 V6 with an A4 (Same tranny) and had to get it rebiult because it got so hot in there it fried all the shift solenoids, Ironically I just got it out today. The Sonnax Kit listed above is the common remedy to this issue... After the kit's installed the problem will never happen again...

What would cause these symptoms on a 2003 dodge durango engine stalls sometimes accelleration is affected and transmission seems to slip but may not be slipping


If the transmission seems to be slipping, check the fluid level for the automatic transmission.

If the engine stalls on acceleration, the tps or throttle position sensor may be bad, or the engine is in need of a tune up.

My transmission shifts really good but when im in overdrive driving a steady 60 its slips just a little and slips back, continues till its hot and quits no more slipping


Torque converter lock up clutch is slipping, not good, Its not that it quits slipping when warm, it quits WORKING when warm and is not even trying to lock up any more. Need to have this repaired right away or severe damage will result. Depending on what year it is depends on what is needed for repair. Up until like 2000 it requires the valve be modified and torque converter replaced, after that its seals and torque converter. Any competent trans shop should be able to repair easily.
