Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

I called him back and I'm having him do a drain and fill flush of the transmission fluid and then monitor it to see how it's performing. This mechanic shop only uses Volvo fluid so I know the right stuff will be put in. rp2005, what's the resolution, or non-resolution of this? Sorry completely forg...

Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

On the money! First step of taking ownership of a USED vehicle is to replace and restore ALL fluids to specification. Reports and records are just what they are. I called him back and I'm having him do a drain and fill flush of the transmission fluid and then monitor it to see how it's performing. ...

Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

One suggestion very early on, because the printout noted that the faults were “not active in the current drive cycle”, was to erase all the codes and see what came back. Was this ever done? Yeah the codes weren't showing when I took them to the second shop and they never saw them firing. My wife th...

Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

I was thinking the high temperature indication could be due to contact resistance in the electrical connectors. Resistance in the wiring would add to the PTC resistor/sensor giving an artificially high temperature reading. Together with the time of year (winter salt spray in the engine compartment ...

Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

I'm looking into some options of buying a rebuilt valve body online seeing prices in the $500s. Is this something I should stay away from? Seems like it might be a decent option if I can't find a place to rebuild one locally.

Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

Couple items: 1) When I looked into this repair on VIDA as another forum member was having issues - VIDA does not require transmission removal to work on the transmission valve body. It can be dropped from below - at least from what I saw. If you have VIDA you can confirm. 2) The valve body swap do...

Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

If you want another look at/verify the diag codes I have the DICE and laptop with me. If you're in the neighborhood- mentioned general locale in previous post. I'm here through Wed or Thurs but might be tracking out to the south burbs all day Tuesday. Appreciate it! Car is at Wizard Werks right now...

Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

Shavings in the trans.. they have no way of knowing that without opening it up. The list of codes together looks suspiciously like an electrical issue to me. Try cleaning the terminals on the electrical connector(s) that plug into the trans, check for damaged/frayed wiring, and verify proper fluid ...

Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

Thanks for that explanation and that makes perfect sense. I did just get a call from the Volvo specialty shop and they said it needs a new Valve Body and quoted me at $3200. He said he would need to drop the transmission so I asked him if he thought it was possible if he could do it without dropping...

Re: 2009 XC90 Tranmission Service Urgent

I picked up my car yesterday and drove it home. It is definitely slipping every once in a while but only when going 10 mph or less so I am going to take it into another mechanic shop on Monday and have the transmission fluid flushed. He did say that it "could help or make it worse". Something about ...
