Check to see if there are any OBD codes. Might point you in the right direction. Most of the problems I've seen with Volvo trannies are because of shift solenoids, which can cause a host of problems. Dealers tend to always quote a new ($$$$$) transmission, but if the transmission does shift properly when it DOES shift, your "wear items" are probably OK, and the problem is in the "control items" like the shift solenoid, or possibly a sensor. At the very least, I'd try draining and refilling the transmission fluid (particularly if you haven't done that in a while), and would recommend adding 8-12 ounces of LubeGard Platinum (I'm normally skeptical of snake oil, but have seen that stuff "fix" a few transmissions that were acting really badly).

On the early V70, the sun roof refuses to operate if the alarm battery is flat. Weird ... yes but that fixed it on mine.

BETWEEN THE MOTOR AND TRANSMISSION

Volvo XC90 Cars... | Answered on Mar 15, 2019 | 39 views


This is actually very simple, if a bit messy.

Put a couple of rags under the sensor, remove the connector from it. Undo the cap on the Schrader valve. It's on the fuel rail on the opposite side of the FPR. Press the center with a rag over it and let it soak up the gas that comes out.

Then go back to the FPR and undo the T25 screw from it, then with gently pull it out while twisting it back and forth a little and let the rags soak up the mess under it.

Then stick the new one in, tighten the screw, replace the connector and turn on the ignition a couple of times to push fuel up to the rail and pressurize it, then start the car.

My sensor failed by 'hiccuping' once in a while. It would spike the pressure to 120 psi, then drop to 20 psi, then normalize at 43 psi again, all within a few seconds.

If you pull the trim off (use a plastic spatula to get under it, then just yank with your hands) there are holes in there to reach the bolts.

Get an extension and a socket, I think it's 12mm, and then see if you can just tighten them up a little bit.

Also, the bumpers hang on the body with some clips/grooves along the edges, so make sure that they didn't 'fall out' of the grooves and clips and sag that way.

If so, loosed the bolts, pull the bumper away from the car an inch or two and then push it back in place while aligning the bumpers edges.

My personal preference is to check with your local dealer for the Polestar tune. It's a chip tune that not only tweaks your turbo for some boost, but the transmission programming is FAR better.

Then there's Hilton tuning. ARD. IPD and probably some others. I wanted to have a safe tune that didn't cause issues so I went with Polestar.

Sorry , you can't . Unless you have a professional scan tool an factory service repair info. Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.
