    I am experiencing issues while taking off , turning and on reverse. It feels like something is holding it back from Getting into gear. I have no Check Transmission lights . Anyone have that issue? 870k Miles Volvo I shift Trans.

    Sorry to tell you but no one even in Volvo's dealerships can fix anything with automatic transmission. I personally spent months and more then $40000 to fix my automatic transmission issues and after all my problems wasn't resolved correctly. So I sold my Volvo and bought old designed Freightliner columbia with manual transmission. I learned on internet videos how to use manual transmission and since 2015 had no problems with my transmission. And if I had I know that any shop can install new manual transmission for $3500-$4000 . Do not waist your time and money to fix automatic transmission. That is all I want to tell you.

    I have had 1 past issue before but it was just a harness. It is not easy to swap out for this for a automatic

    I had a problem with the clutch control valve which exhibited similar symptoms

    If it were my truck, I would pop into a dealer and have them run diagnostics/calibration on the CCV. it should only take 20 or 30 mins in tech tool.

    I was convinced my tranny had to come out to have the ribbon harness replaced - turned out the valve was bad. 700$ or so and an hour labor including diag and all was good again

    Thanks brother, i replaced that less than 2 years ago, maybe that is bad. I also got an ABS light that turned on.

    No prob,

    My original one lasted 5 years before it packed it in, if yours is only 2 years old then hmmmm

    I would look into the abs fault. A good volvo guy that used to work on my truck (before he went from being a volvo/mack shop to western star/freightliner shop) explained to me that the tranny uses abs input from (if I remember correctly) the front left wheel speed sensor. In my case, the abs faults weren't the problem, but they CAN throw your tranny out of whack. It's a long shot, but way cheaper than pulling your tranny out to look for things.

    Also, I shifts can be rebuilt now. No more 25k I shift re/re jobs!

    I just checked in into the Dealer. They will look into this matter. As I was driving it to the dealer the ABS light turned on. I changed the Brake switch on the firewall yesterday when it came on. This all happend after changing the brakes.
