Question From carlosm347 on 2001 VOLVO S80 2.9

HOW TO CHANGE SHIFT SOLENOID HOW TO LOWER THE TRANSMISSION ON 2001 VOLVO S80 2.9 NON TURBO

Response From Discretesignals

Are you asking how to change the shift solenoid?

There are a lot of steps and warnings, so you really need to get hold of the service information procedures for lowering the transaxle to get access to the side cover. Your best bet is to try Alldata DIY.

Interesting, but it appears that Volvo is using a general motors 4T65E transmission?

Response From carlosm347

I TRY TO GO TO ALLDATADIY LIKE U TELL ME BUT THEY DONT HAVE THE VOLVO ON THE LIST, CAN U TELL ME ANOTHER PLACE SO I CAN GET THE INFORMATION FOR THAT CAR, I AM DOING IT MY SELF, I DONT WANT TO MAKE ANY MISTAKES. THANK U FOR YOUR HELP.

Response From Discretesignals

I'm surprised that Alldata DIY doesn't have Volvo in their list. You could try Mitchell1diy, but I am not sure how much service information they have for the transmission in your car. You should contact them and ask.

It really wouldn't hurt to have a transmission specialist diagnose the problem. Then if you decide you want to take on the fix, you could. It might require a high end scan tool to do some diagnostic tests and experience in troubleshooting that transmission. Worst case scenario is it may need a complete tear down and inspection to see what is going on. Are you ready for that?

Response From carlosm347

OF COURSE I AM READY I JUST WANT TO KNOW HOW TO LOWER DOWN STEP BY STEP TO DO EVERYTHING THE RIGHT WAY

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

I'm fairly certain that Mitchelldiy has the service information procedure and steps for lowering the transmission to remove the side cover.

Response From Hammer Time

I checked both sites and Alldatadiy is not listing any Volvos but Mitchelldiy does show this vehicle

Response From nickwarner

You also can buy factory service manuals from helm.com, but I will warn you that factory books are expensive. They may not even make a printed one for this, as Volvo has transitioned into an online service at their dealers. The employees at the dealers each have a login and the info comes directly from a secure site at Volvo headquarters. Even the semitrucks were like that ten years ago when I was working at a Mack and Volvo dealership.

Response From kensoncustom

first check connector as it is under battery and septible to corrosion check harness for varmit demage.
those little guys love wires. next drop lower pan check
for meterial in pan,and loose oil feed tubes.
side cover can be removed .remove axel shaft loosen sub frame lower trans to remove cover. its tight but can be done. i would sugest purchacing a solinoid kit.be sure to check internal harness for cracked wires

Response From carlosm347

THANK U GUYS I STARTING TO WORK ON IT TOMORROW,THERE ANY WAY I CAN REMOVE THE COVER WITH OUT LOWERING THE TRANS,MY CAR DRIVES BUT DONT SHIFT STAY IN 1ST IT REVERSE,I WENT TO ADVANCE AUTO PARTS AND PUT IT TO SCAN I GOT P0751 P0756 SHIFT SOLENOID A AND B. THANKS EVERYBODY FOR THE INFORMATION ALSO THEY ARE NO BOOKS FOR THAT CAR LOOK EVERYWHERE NOT EVEN THE VOLVO DEALER. THANKS

Response From Discretesignals

You really need to have that diagnosed before ripping into the transmission. Just because it has shift solenoid in the trouble code description doesn't mean the shift solenoid is the culprit. You could have:


- The hydraulic valve for solenoid S1 has stuck in the open or closed position
- Defective control system (the solenoid binds or is stuck)
- Internal leakage in the transmission
- Warn or damaged clutch driven plates in the transmission.


Default is 3rd and reverse, so it probably isn't stuck in first. You really need to have a transmission specialist check it out before you break it down. There is service information for this because I am looking right at it. You won't find this stuff in a Chilton's manual.

Question From LATONIA on VOLVO STATION WAGON

TIMING BELT BROKE WHILE DRIVING 740 VOLVO STATION WAGON DO I JUST CHANGE THE BELT

Response From piercearcher

I think you over did your car dude. Are always pushing it to the limit, I mean always red line? If so, then your timing belt will surely break because of high pressure that you give. It will have shorter life span. Correct me if I'm wrong, Volvo S70 is the volvo wagon ryt? If so, then you must obtain avolvo S70 part to repair your car.

Response From Indytech Top Rated Answer

If your timing belt broke ,then you have a problem
as this is a interference engine, meaning piston to valve contact
can become a very expensive repair.

Volvo XC60 Radio / IAM REPAIR?

Showing 3 out of 3 Posts
Question From Richie22 on Volvo XC60 Radio / IAM REPAIR?

Hi all
The battery on my 11 plate Volvo XC60 D3 was connected the wrong way,(clever, I know!) and has blown various fuses etc, which have been replaced by Volvo and the car is working fine now. However the IAM radio module is not working including the visual screen and will cost £900+ to fit a new one.
Does anyone know of any companies that can repair these modules, or am I doomed to spend big bucks??
Volvo says that nobody does non patent replacements. Is that true?
Cheers
Rich

Response From Discretesignals

Maybe you can get one out of a salvage yard. Call around.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Ya - techno stuff isn't too friendly with reversed polarity.


US based site so have to suggest a local hunt for "stereo etc.) repairs. I can't know the final cost of the full fix but not really too surprised at the costs unfortunately,
