Re: Exaggerated AT movement from P to D Topic is solved

Additionally, the techs used standard ATF 1 transmission fluid instead of Dextron III. Be careful of young techs working on old technology. volvolugnut Truth. If you have your tranny fluid changed by anyone other than Volvo specialists, make sure to tell them to use the proper fluid! If possible, g...

Re: '97 855 GLT Can you help me find the for source of oil leak near exhaust manifold on passenger side?

I had a leak similar to what you described, turned out the rear main seal needed to be replaced. How can a rear main seal leak be causing his problem? If you haven't yet,clean everything down. Let it dry, take a couple pics. Drive for a day and get back under there and examine everything. Apologies...

Re: Exaggerated AT movement from P to D Topic is solved

Thank you for tip kallekula. Turns out the filter inside the tranny needed to be replaced. Additionally, the techs used standard ATF 1 transmission fluid instead of Dextron III. Still bucks, but much less. Hopefully it will smooth out the more I drive.

Exaggerated AT movement from P to D Topic is solved

Having an automatic transmission problem in my '93 945: Shifting from P into D causes the entire car to lurch unnaturally although it doesn't affect the running of the vehicle. Might be old age or might be a symptom of something bigger. Recently had a transmission drain and fill, new transmission mo...

Re: Aceleration problem from start Topic is solved

If it still has problems, check the air intake hose for cracks. Also check the idle air hoses for cracks and make sure all of the hoses are clamped down securely.

Maybe check the fuel lines under the hood to make sure they're not leaking.

Re: In tank fuel pump

Was the in-tank pump new or used? I replaced my in-tank pump with a used one from eBay, which was listed as working. Of course, after installation, it didn't work. New in-tank pumps are expensive (think eEuroparts stocks them), but it's the most reliable option. The AC controls and radio run on a di...

camshaft tuning for fuel economy?

Is it possible to tune the 850 camshaft timing for better fuel economy? I have IPD's cam timing tool and was wondering if I could increase my MPG rather than my acceleration.
