S60 T5 Tiptronic Gearbox - transmission problem

I can go in reverse, but I have a problem in drive. Delay from park to drive, then a sudden rush forward. After a few minutes, the revs go higher as the connection gets worse. Came to a complete standstill, with transmission light on dashboard coming on too.

Vibrations through the accelerator too.

Any ideas - other than a new gearbox.

Thanks

    I am also having the same problem, took it in to Volvo and they told me that there is an internal leak. problem is that a new gearbox is half the book value and sending it to a 3rd party repair shop is not much better.

    my car is a 98 prelude automatic and sometimes it just started reving up without changing gears or moving and sometimes the reverse works and sometimes it doesnt' but it only happens when i use the tiptronics or do sudden take offs.

Make sure that you have the transmission software updated. Volvo has had many upgrades on their transmission's control software to address these exact symptoms.

SOURCE: Tiptronic/auto gearbox in galant. When gearbox

It could be the thickness/condition of the fluid and if its been changed recently is it the correct fluid,as Mitsubishis are known to be fussy about the fluid they run,check the color ,it needs to be a reddish pink,if its brownish it needs to be cheanged/flushed.Of course check the level carefully,this should help sort the issue!

I changed the gear box of my 2007 corolla about 5 months ago. Then I noticed the car jerks or kind of pushes forward whenever i change my gear from park/neutral to drive or reverse. Please what do you...


A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission. If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox. If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine.

I drove the car in to Costco to get tires. Everything worked just fine. The week before I had the timing and serpentine belt changed. However, when we went to pick up the car, the man at Costco Tire...


the simplest way to diagnose this problem is to take it to a dealer and get it on the diagnostic computer,(they dont have to do the work)the tiptronic gearbox is a computer controlled gearbox(auto mode)with a manual overide.i could give you lots of answers but once diagnosed properly its cheaper than guessing.

Volvo 2006 S60 refuses to move in reverse direction


your problem lies in the internal parts of your transmission which are the clutch linings, they are already worn out and starts to slide.

What does it mean when an automatic transmission slips gears?


hello. Here are some of the transmission slipping signs you should be looking for:
  • A delay of more than a second in shifting from the neutral to drive or reverse gear, could mean that there is a problem with the transmission. If on changing from a neutral or park position to the drive or reverse gear, the car does not immediately catch the gear and move forward or backward, then it could mean a problem in the transmission.
  • If you change gears, and you hear a sudden clunk or sudden jolt or shudder, then the shifting is not smooth and there could be a problem with the gearbox.
  • If the engine rpm keeps increasing but there is no increase in the speed, then it could be a sign of the transmission slipping.
  • Another one of the transmission slipping signs is oil or automatic transmission fluid (ATF) leakage. This could damage the transmission.
  • If your car has suddenly started sounding noisy, then it could also be because of a problem in the gearbox.
  • Most automatic transmission systems, nowadays, have a check engine light or an OD light, which flashes if there is a problem with the engine. You will need a code reader to diagnose the problem by reading the code.

Suddenly automatic transmission would not go into reverse


seems like your gear linkage is either broken or come off, if the linkage is ok then u are looking at a replacement gearbox
