Question about 2002 Volvo S60

1 Answer

Transmission flares 2002 s60 2.5L (base model). the car is automatic trans with 75K miles on it and it has trans flares btwn 2nd and 3rd. I have had the trans flushed and the software updated but no luck. when the car tries to shift you feel the gear release to switch and then the tach jumps up about 200 or 300 rpms before the next gear grabs (you can clearly feel that there is a problem with the trans when the car shifts). Every once in a while the car will jolt into 3rd gear with a knocking sound from under the car. It only happens between 2nd and 3rd gears.

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.

Trans bangs into gear on acceleration, feels like 2nd to 3rd gear. I have 98K on this honda. Trans fluid was never changed. Checked trans fluid it is in spec, bangs into gear hot or cold. Also check engine...


In all probability, the transmission fluid has stopped doing its work. You should have changed ATF fluid and filter about 60k miles ago. Auto transmission on 1998-2002 Accords are notoriously weak. ( i own one). I would venture to say that you have abused the tranny beyond its possibilities. If D light is flashing, transmission computer has detected a problem. Change tranny oil and filter to see if you can save it but outlook is not good.

2002 Toyota 4-Runner W/100K Miles. The automatic trans. seeems to be sticking going from 2nd to 3rd gear. Trans. fluid has been checked.


Next step if fluid level is ok would be when was last time it was replaced? Change fluid & filter, see if this helps.
