Question about Volvo S80

1 Answer

2001 Volvo S80 T6. Transmission slipping in 3rd gear, but ONLY when A/C is on. Flushed Tranny and new filter 2 times in past 3 weeks. Car has 108k. This vehicle is equipped with the Factory GM transmission (same as Impala). Could this be the shift solenoid? Or with A/C on, is the car drawing too much power/trans slipping. If so, why only in 3rd gear? Please help!! Thanks!!!!! Benjamin

We have a 2001 Volvo S80 T6 that is having some problems. We recently purchased the car and it ran great for a couple months until one day we were on interstate and it went into limp mode. We took it to a...


Well, to begin with this is not a problem that is exclusive to the "Volvo Community". This type of problem that can occur with MOST modern cars that have computer-controlled powertrains.

"Limp Mode" is nothing more than a computer strategy that is designed to help prevent further damage to the vehicle in the event of a powertrain control system failure. The computer system can implement this strategy based on engine control, transmission control, antilock brake control, or traction control system malfunctions.

The only way to determine why this is occuring with your vehicle is to scan your computer network with the proper computer interface equipment (scan tool) and ask the onboard computer network why it has been implementing limp mode. It may still be a problem with your transmission, but then again, maybe not. It may be the result of an engine control problem. - Proper diagnosis required.

I have a 2001 vovlo s80 with the codes p1618 p0705 po733 how can i fix


PO705 is Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Malfunction. PO733 is Incorrect 3rd Gear Ration Information. P1618 means that the ECU and the TCM are not communicating properly. PO705 & PO733 can be related to P1618. Check the wiring going to the transmission. Look for a pinched wire from the car being put on a rack or possibly an accident you may have had recently. If you can find no problems with the wiring or connections then it is time to see a professional transmission expert. It may just be that the transmission has an internal problem.

Transmission flares


NO: 43-37
DATE: 2-25-2003
MODEL: MY 2001-2002 S60, V70, V70 XC
SUBJECT: Shift Quality Issues due to B4 Servo Cover Failure, 2-3 upshift harshness or flare
CHASSIS: These chassis breaks are approximate:
S60: 062000-152000
V70: 116000-230000
V70 XC: 036000-067100
TRANSMISSION SERIAL NUMBER: The first 3 digits of the serial number on the affected transmissions will be between 01C (March 2001) and 01L (December 2001).
DESCRIPTION:
In the AW 55-50, brake number four (B4), is only applied in 3rd gear. The B4 is applied by a piston, which is covered by an aluminum cap. This cap has a steel washer crimped to its inside surface, and a rubber cushion that sits between the cover and the washer.
If this washer breaks free from the crimps it will become concaved because of the B4 piston return spring pressure.
This loose washer can cause: - " 2-3 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 2-3 upshifts - " 3-4 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 4-3 downshifts
Replacing the broken B4 cover with a new one (PN 30651771) will remedy these symptoms.

Transmission valve


All I know is that volvo does not replace shift solenoids anymore. I dont even think you can find that part. I used to work for volvo and the manufacturer would have us just replace the transmission. You can get a factory instruction manual from volvo. Its called a first edition manual. They are not cheap. It might be a good idea to bring to the dealer, just find get a second opinion.

Transmission Service Required message


They are correct as to the Location of the Sensor and, It would be a Time Consuming and Expensive Repair But, If you are not getting the Red Caution Light I would have the Tranny Flushed and Filled and see if it is not Just Buildup on the Sensor. It could actually Release itself. If not you will eventually have to get a Rebuild Buut, Try the Flush and Fill First.

Volvo s80 t6 shifting problem


The cheap fix: Speed sensor connected to the Transmission Control Module (TCM). That screws up the engine control module and could throw you into limp home mode. Expensive fix: Transmission control module. Start with the speed sensor. Suggest that to your mechanic and get a second opinion before changing out the TCM. It's a simple plug and swap, but the module is expensive. I bought a spare on Ebay for my Volvo for $10. The TCU, I believe, lives under the right front kick panel, at least that's where it is on my 740.
