Question about 2001 Volvo V70

1 Answer

2001 V70 add around 40mphr it shakes and shudders.

The car seems to have a transmission issue. a message change transmission oil at next service keeps coming up. Took it to a transmission guy, he said the fluid looked good and it did not need changing.
One dealer said nothing came up on their computer, Another said it appears that we have a transmission issue.It shudders at about 40 miles per hour, when you get past 40 it stops. Could this be throttle problem?

It may be your torque converter, or you may need a simple fluid change. Make sure they use the EXACT fluid as mentioned in your owners manual. get the fluid changed first, as replacing the torque converter can cost a couple thousand dollars.

My 2004 Mazda tribute has started shuddering in all gears, not contuously but seems when it drops below the 2 on rpms. Had just had it serviced and oil changed 2 weeks ago

Did you have the motor oil changed or the transmission oil? Your check engine light should be on and you should have it scanned by a professional. Did it start to shudder immediately after the service? Its very hard to tell without seeing the car to diagnose myself.

2001 hyundai xg300 when shifthing form 3 to 4 there is a sligth shutter before full engagement

This is pack clutch shudder and is often an indication that you have waited to long to have the automatic transmission fluid and filter serviced. I would also add 1 ounce of limited slip friction modifier to the fluid after it is changed, the brand I'd use is made by STALUBE, this aids in smooth clutch engagement and eliminates the shudder completely in most cases.

it sounds like u have transmission torque converter clutch shudder, I recommened you change the fluid and add 2 ounces of gear oil friction modifier, this works very well at curing this type of shudder issue.

Oil pressure warning on 2001 Volvo v70 with 220Km

2 things i would do professionally first. 1. change the oil using a higher weight and a volvo oil filter(there is a difference) 2. have a "wet" gauge installed at the oil pressure sending unit to verify oil pressure from cold to warm. a "wet" gauge is a gauge that reads actuall oil pressure and not the use of electronics. it is usually very acurate. if the oilp pressure still drops, then you are looking at an oil pump issue most likely.

Just purchased a 2001 Volvo V70 XC wagon with auto transmission. Took it to local oil/lube shop and asked about servicing the transmission (change filter/fluid). They said that I would need to take the...

Most oil/lube shops use a process of suctioning the old transmission fluid through the fill tube. On older cars, this process can damage the transmission since any metal fragments in the bottom of the transmission pan will be "sucked up" through the system. Since they won't perform the service properly (remove the transmission pan/filter and replace the filter). This is why they referred you to a dealer. Any transmission shop should be able to service your transmission. Best of luck!

2001 Towncar Shudders while accelerating

Yes, it's a torque convertor shudder. Flush your transmission fluid and add an additive to help shudder (shudder fix, etc). That fixes most of the vehicle, the others will need a convertor. Try to keep transmission serviced around every 30k will help this concern.
