It is winter mode but it also takes off in 3rd gear to help avoid tire spin

This is the Winter mode. It makes the transmission more slowly shift in order to help your control while driving in snowy conditions.

2001 Volvo s60 D5 very difficult to shift gear


if you have a hydraulically assisted clutch, check the reservoir. it's located on the firewall in the vicinity of the brake vacuum booster. if it's low/empty, fill it. you may have air in the system which will require bleeding. what is the mileage? you may be due for a clutch. if you google, "hard shifting manual trans" you will gain more insight on the matter.

My 2003 Volvo S60 shifts hard from 1st to 2nd gear. This is a automatic trans. where you can shift manually! Help


I don't have that prob on mine but I would suggest you change your ATF asap with Mobil1 or equivalent. Do a complete flush and observe the fluid taken out if there r chunks of metal w/ it. If none you're in luck.After flush, test drive only on "D" and see if the harsh shifting is still there. If no Mobil1 is available just like here in San Diego, use Valvoline MaxLife for cars w/ over 75k miles. Owners manual specifies a certain number on recomended ATFs and it's in the MaxLife. I just used it and seems to be working good. Good luck

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.

1991 volvo 740 will shift out of 4th gear at around 100km/hr and wont shift back


This is a standard shift I am presuming if so this usually indicates a bad synchronizer in the transmission. if it is an automatic trans. it is a speed sensor malfuctioning.

I have a 2001 Volvo S60 with Automatic Transmission. Every once and a while it seems to hesitate when shifting from second to third gears. This happens once every couple of weeks.. I will be excellerating...


When was the last time you had a trans flush ? Sounds like you could use one. Trans fluid breaks down and doesnt work as well as i did when it was new. There are also sensors that tell it when to change gears could also be a sensor. I would start with a trans flush if it were my car. always try the least expensive first. then if u still have the problem look into calling a trusted transservice and ask them if the have any experiance in Volvo trans. if not fluid my bet is on a sensor in the transmission. Good luck and hope this helps ya.
