Question about Volvo Cars & Trucks
I have a 2003 Volvo V70 I purchase from an online auto auction for $1200. Anyway the car actually drive pretty good but I notice now that it's hot outside the car start to shift extremely hard in that first or second gear. it only happens when the car is warm.
Start off by checking the transmission fluid when its hot and in park for the proper level,
check the color of the fluid compared to new fluid,
volvos probably use dealer specific transmission fluids and there is a possibility normal shelf trans fluid was used and that can cause all sorts of transmission problems.
hard shifts can also be related to transmission and or engine mounts. visually inspect those for wear and or breakage.
dark fluid or particles of metals on the dipstick can be a sign of major transmission problems
clean the dipstick off with a clean white rag to check that.
if its low make sure to use what the dealer recommends even if its high dollar, but if the fluid is already burnt smelling and or contains metal materials it getting time for a rebuild or replacement,
. at that price the previous owner might of known the transmission was going south.
good luck and hope you get more miles out of it.
