Your next step is to have the trans tested but yes it sounds like you are going to need a new one and its not uncommon,ps make sure the trans fluid gets changed every 30k regular driving and 15k short trips and only only only volvo fluid

Wouldn't it be premature for the transmission of an 2005 S60 volvo to start to fail? I have 158,000 miles on it and am really hoping it isn't the trainy. IT feels like the transmission is slipping,...

if the engine rpm dont keep pace with you accelerating then your trany is slipping. 158k is alot of miles, not that its there limit but its not unheard of

Transmission slips, 2nd to 3rd

My volvo s60 cuts off while driving

Actually cuts out while driving, or when at idle stopped at a light or something? If it is the latter, have your oxygen sensors checked and maybe your fuel pressure sensor or MAP sensor.

Sounds as if a synchronizer is going out in 3rd gear, or 3rd gear maybe stripped. I would get it checked by a tranny (transmission) shop before it ended up costing you more money. There is a possibility that there may be some shavings on that gear as well, which would just need cleaned.

2004 volvo s60 check engine light on

You could have a bad MAF (mass air flow) sensor. It would really help if we could know the code. Have you ever fueled up with the engine running? How is your fuel mileage? Has it ever backfired?  Why don't you run by an auto parts (they will do it for free) store and have it rescanned and get back to me.
