Re: XC70 Transmission AW55-50SN No Drive - Problem found... C1 frictions burned and Drum cracked

I'm still procrastinating on investigating this issue, but in a moment of distraction, looking for some verification of my theory of what's wrong, and a way to assemble without damaging the seal rings, I came across a really good rebuild manual. I'll paste the link here, hopefully it will help someb...

Re: '01 V70 a/c fan stays on

I used VIDA/DICE to turn the "dehumidify" feature off. Just makes me nervous having a fan running full speed consuming battery power when the engine isn't running! I'm sure it has caused me to need my wife to rescue me from a carpark once. All it takes is a battery that isn't quite up to the task an...

Re: PCV Write-up for 1999+ Volvo 5-cylinder

Ok, so I've serviced the system on a 2002 XC70... Found the hose to the banjo bolt on the intake manifold clogged. Everything else tested OK with air. That plastic hose is certainly fragile, it ended up in a few pieces, so I simply replaced with vacuum hose. Also, major oil leak turned out to be fro...

Re: PCV Write-up for 1999+ Volvo 5-cylinder

Wow! There really is nothing to it. Should be pretty easy to flush out.

I think I'll just get some rubber stoppers then fill with solvent, soak and shake, shake, shake.

Thanks for the reply erikv11

Re: XC70 Transmission AW55-50SN No Drive - Problem found... C1 frictions burned and Drum cracked

ok... time for an update on this job. I've been doing it in my spare time, which I don't have much of, so it's taken a long time. 1. Bought a 2nd hand drum from a USA AT dismantler. was very impressed with condition. 2. Bought a Frictions / Steels / Seals / filter kit from Chinese supplier on Alibab...

Re: PCV Write-up for 1999+ Volvo 5-cylinder

Thanks everyone, great thread! I think there's only one issue left unanswered... What is actually inside the oil trap / separator box, has anyone ever cut one open? I'm guessing it just some sort of coalescer. Can it be cleaned? I'm thinking soak in petrol, shake lots, flush out, blow out, maybe use...

XC70 Transmission AW55-50SN No Drive - Problem found... C1 frictions burned and Drum cracked

Ok, so... I'm hoping this will help somebody else who might come across this problem. This is my first auto trans overhaul and I'm learning heaps! Here's a bit of a quick history: 1. For few hundred km's before the car had no drive, I noticed what appeared to be some slip in the transmission with a ...
