Re: 2002 S60 (Non-turbo) Charcoal Canister/J Hose Replacemen

I had the same issue w/ my 2001 S60.

The whole rear axle assembly has to be dropped and lowered to gain access. I had a split hose, probably $4.00 worth of parts and almost $300.00 in labor to gain access and replace the hose.

It sucks but had to be done.

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

UPDATE:

Finally found a used transmission out of a donor V70 and hot damn it's working again.

Took a full year to find the transmission and have it swapped out.

Car runs/drives well for now.

Car is for sale.

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

"The OP seems to be having an emotional reaction to the situation rather than a logical one, but no one really blames him for it do we? It's a pretty bad situation." This might be your opinion in which your entitled but with all do respect when a situation such as this occurs and the manufacturer e...

Re: Should I buy a new tranny, have the old one rebuilt, or

The dealers won't rebuild those trannies, it's a replacement with a remanufactured unit. Your old one will be sent back for rebuild and later installation into someone elses' car. The old parts that can be reused (case) got though an inspection process. Most of the other parts are probably just repl...

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

Sorry the car is a "pile of ________! Worst vehicle I ever purchased and I won't give another dollar to Volvo. I've got a 1993 GMC Jimmy SE with 317,000 miles and the motor and transmission have never suffered any major mechanical failures and the cars have been used nearly in the same identical man...

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

Common answer from someone who bought a used 2001 and did not do their homework! It has been stated almost everywhere since about 2006 that 2001 Volvos are/were, for the most part, total crap. It came out underdeveloped with bad transmissions and other smaller, (mostly electrical) yet anoying fault...

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

I can say this for certainty, based on the experience that I've had with this car and what i have learned over the last year or so dealing with Volvo and their dealerships, I won't be supplying them with any more of my hard earned dollars! The car is driveable as it sits right now and I will give it...

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

Just to let everyone know, I (ME) was the beta tester for the stop/neutral software. I had an early 01 (new) with almost immediate clunking issues. I complained starting in August 2000. The head engineer from Rockleigh came down. We have been friendly after I did some beta testing on an early 98 XC...

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

I doubt seriously that if anyone requested a authorized Volvo mechanic/shop to disable the stop neutral feature the answer would be emphatically "no". The liability for knowingly disabling that feature would be seriously opening someone up to some potential legal problems so I don't think that's an ...

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

Probably all you needed was a new ETM and new transmission fluid. Just a guess. Yeah, I wish it were just that simple. Those recommendations will only have very minimal effect. With this particular year and model - there are major - MAJOR - transmission design flaws. It's an engineering - design fl...

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

As a rule of thumb I don't pay much attention to what I read on the web. It's a coin toss as to the validity of some of the compalints on vehicles. Now if a vehicle is re-called by the manufacturer for a mechanical problem, that gets my attention. Sort of what Toyota has gone through over the last y...

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

I'm expecting to be refunded the cost of the used transmission. I think thats covered. I'm out the cost of installation by the independent mechanic. I may persue legal action against a party to recoup the money spent for the installation. My intuition is that I was sold a bad transmission from the b...

Re: 2001 S60 Auto Transmission trouble

the original tranny would rev up when shifting from 2nd to 3rd and then "clunk" into gear. I've heard some say that this is called a flair/flare - not sure. On the 2nd transmission install I have'nt driven the car yet, I'm just going off of what the mechanic has told me. He did'nt indicate that it w...

The car has been regularly serviced at the Volvo Dealerships in WA State. About 1 year ago, the HUD indicate...
