Question about 2008 Volvo C30
So I was driving my volvo c30 last night when suddenly (Without any weird noise or anything) the clutch lost resistance and became super easy and It wouldn't let me shift at all. When the car is turned off, I can go to 1st, 2nd, etc.. without problems but once it is on it is really hard to shift, its nearly impossible. I managed to drive home in 2nd but I had to turn it off and on a couple of times when I had to stop. We changed the slave cylinder and brake fluid but when the car is on i still can't change gears. The mechanic says it is because of the syncrhoniser because I would change gears while the car was lifted up a little bit.
Sounds like the pressureplate of the clutch is faulty or the clutch fork may have cracked

Find a transmission servicer that is not afraid of tackling a Volvo problem. This is probably why the car was for sale in the first place. Good luck!

if you have a hydraulically assisted clutch, check the reservoir. it's located on the firewall in the vicinity of the brake vacuum booster. if it's low/empty, fill it. you may have air in the system which will require bleeding. what is the mileage? you may be due for a clutch. if you google, "hard shifting manual trans" you will gain more insight on the matter.

TCC Solenoid in trans
Changing the fluid won't do anything
I guess the dealer never road tested it
Took your money & ran,as they always do
