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.

My 2001 volvo s60 slips out of gear and at times goes back in gear hard.

It sounds like a problem with transmission fluid. It could be low (check it warm and on level ground). If it's not red, I would suggest changing fluid and filter, otherwise make sure it's up to proper level.

My volvo S69 2003 the transmission seems to be slipping

You really need to bite the bullet, take it to a transmission place and have it evaluated for about 100 bucks. You don't have to have them do the repair but it will be much cheaper now than thousands. It is probably at this point a shift solenoid which is about 80 to 120 for the part and two hours labor.

Wouldn't it be premature for the transmission of an 2005 S60 volvo to start to fail? I have 158,000 miles on it and am really hoping it isn't the trainy. IT feels like the transmission is slipping,...

if the engine rpm dont keep pace with you accelerating then your trany is slipping. 158k is alot of miles, not that its there limit but its not unheard of
