Doing so can reposition the shift points, or at least put the transmission into adaptation mode so it can figure out the issue on its own. The B4 Transmission Servo Update Kit is used to address Volvo hard shifting problems. Had to repeat a few times until I got it right. Watched one or two YouTube videos that were somewhat helpful, but by no means complete. Technician found noise coming from Axle Shafts.
Because this is such a new vehicle, this sounds to me more like a software problem. We have a huge variety of engine mounts, transmission mounts torque mounts , and bushings to refresh your Volvo and get it driving like new again. Examining the old axle leads me to believe there is no trauma to the axle. I am slowly but surely running out of options before I might need to scrap the transmission and install a new one. If I try to go faster it gets to a 5.
Give that a shot, the fluid for your car is Part 93165147. When it flares it acts as if it goes into neutral then will rev past the red line, and will not shift unless I let off the gas, then it proceeds to clunk into gear hard. The degree which the transmission has already been compromised from the current issue, I cannot say. Now it seems to shift roughly on accelerating until I get into the higher gears and then when slowing down, shifts rough on decelerating seems to happen between 20-40 mph. The servo cover itself is accessible on the transmission from the driver-side wheel well. The final drive bearings require no end play adjustment. The mechanic was not able to get it to act up.
There were no directions included with the part. Volvo is supposed to cover this kind of defect to the transmission, if found before the warranty period is expired. Would too much fluid cause a problem? Some people have had success with this, but more than likely for the S40 anyway you will probably need a new auto trans valve body. When the mechanic was resealing it, he found that the 4wd sleeve was broken and replaced that as well. Found to much wear particules.
They refused my demand to just change the oil. It engages with big bang. Reading customer reviews, apparently there are instructions included from other online sellers. I started experience hard shifts and flareups at around 240 000km. I have a 2006 Volvo S60 with 114,000 miles which has given me virtually no transmission problems until now.
Does the 2006 could have the same issue? It really sounds like something is up with the valve body. As was the passenger side front half-shaft. The component is a cover for one of the main servos that actuates the valve body valves, the updated version ensures that sufficient hydraulic pressure is built up to enable the servo to push open the valves, and actuate a smooth gear change. This is a brand new vehicle that stopped working twice in two weeks. I did take a video of the problem occuring and I noticed something that happened too quick for my eye to see.
You can stop there, or do one more, might as well do one more. Car has 99K and been well-cared for. The oil was leaking out the side near the metal band. It idles at a 5 and stays there when im going 60mph. It seems to do it more often during warm weather and it is not as noticeable during the cold days. Since he looked at it, the Transmission has not had the problem. Only repair is to order an entirely new axle.
The dealer or reputable Volvo shop can re-flash the transmission control module with an update, and put it into learn mode. Dealer indicated it was not repairable and that I should just drive it that way. Hello Adam, I have a 2009 V70 3. Dealer wanted to replace transmission. This has the six speed auto. The transmission was shifting erratically on a regular basis. The only two things I saw that are worth some precautions are the sprag one way clutch is not marked and will fit either way so keep track of it if removed.
