Posted by on

There's a wire connector (plastic) near the transmission linkage under the car - that may be unplugged and need to be plugged in.

I recall reading somewhere that one of the fuses was specifically wired to serve the auto tranny's 4th gear. I remember it because it seemed really odd to me. I'm not sure if that's the problem, but it sure would be an easy fix... Worth a look!

88 volvo 240 dl won't shift into 4th


This is common to the AW70 transmission when the rear bushing has been left very worn for a period of time. The rear shaft wear heavily on the main transmission housing causing the pressure not to build enough to engage the overdrive gear.

4th gear disengagement:

The 4th gear is engaged automatically after the transmission has shifted through 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears

at certain speeds and loads. By pressing in the button at the rear of the selector level, the 4th gear can be

disengaged, thus providing a three-speed transmission. As a reminder the


? light on the dashboard

glows. By pressing in the button again, the transmission reverts to four-speed operation and the


?
light shuts off.
This is straight out of the owner's handbook. What this indicates is that there may be a problem with the shift solenoid. On the highway, does is seem to rev high? Can you press the button on the shifter and have the light go out? let me know.

Check the transmission filter, may be clogged up, do not change the oil, keep the same oil when replacing filter, trust me to avoid transmission repair.

940 volvo comes out of overdrive without touching button


IPDusa.com.  If its similar to a 240 (and it most likely is) you can purchase a block off plate for the solenoid so you won't lose 4th gear (actually its OD from torque converter lockup).

1988 4runner wont stay in first gear


Transmission is getting old and will start to do this more and more often. Live with it or have your transmission rebuilt. Personally, I would live with it as long as I could. 1st gear isn't bad. If it was 3rd, 4th, or 5th it would be really annoying. Just take it easy on the old transmission and don't slam gears and it could last that way for a lot longer.
