AWD Volvo Whining Noise

Hearing a Whining Noise?

Diagnosis Help and Advice on XC90 AWD System

It had a noise when accelerating when cold, it sounded like someone tapping a pan under the car. My friend found the problem to be the rear output CV shaft was lacking grease 1st from the factory and probably the grease was cooked or dried out due to its location just above the exhaust pipe.

We Took the XC90 to the Dealer

Diagnostics at the Volvo dealer showed “TCM-002F LOCKUP FUNCTION. SLIPPING NOT ENGAGED.”

Parts: $4936
Labor: $750
Tears: 100,000

Bonus! More About The Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 is a full-size luxury crossover SUV manufactured and marketed by Volvo Cars since 2002 and now in its second generation.

The first generation was introduced at the 2002 North American International Auto Show and used the Volvo P2 platform shared with the first generation Volvo S80 and other large Volvo cars. It was manufactured at Volvo’s Torslandaverken. Volvo moved production equipment of the first generation to China and ended Swedish production at the end of 2014, renaming the car as the Volvo XC Classic (or Volvo XC90 Classic).

At the end of 2014, the second generation XC90 was introduced. It is based on a new global platform, the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). Both generations of the XC90 have won Motor Trend‘s SUV of the Year award in their debuts.
