Gearbox oil leak ?

My auto gearbox seems to have a very slow leak and needs topping up every 5,000 miles ish. But I cannot find where it's coming from, I know a little oil would have leaked when I topped up the oil around the gearbox dip stick, but I don't think that is the main source. Have checked the pipes going in...

Re: Auto Gearbox Clunk Issue

@ Katten. The RPM needle does increase and drop down as you describe so I think I have a shift flare between 2nd and 3rd gear @ vtp the level looked ‘normal’ when checking it as you described Rather than replacing the solenoids which seems rather difficult, would it be worth trying to replace the b4...

Re: Auto Gearbox Clunk Issue

Update on this.

I checked the fluid level again and it was very low, which is strange as it was ok previously.

Thanks for the help everyone!

Auto Gearbox Clunk Issue

My 2002 v70 auto has developed an issue where it makes a ‘clonk’ sound and there is a bit of a thud/ single large vibration from the gearbox and the revs rise. This only seems to happen when exiting a roundabout and happens occasionally. If I let off the throttle while exiting the roundabout then it...

Headlight washer/spray fault

Car: 2002 v70 On the left hand side of the car the headlight spray doesn’t spray any fluid, the right hand side does. I cannot see any dripping under the car or around the engine bay to indicate a leak. Any suggestions on where I should look for the fault? Neither headlight wipers work, but I think ...

Re: Car CD reader mod to read mp3 disc

I'm not an expert but the lazer is unrelated to the players MP3 capability, that is a decoding capability and is either done in software or hardware.

I would say your best bet is to sell your current CD changer and buy one with MP3 capability.

Re: 2001 V70 2.4T ATF simple Drain and Fill...

Sorry to drag up an old thread, but I need to change the ATF in my v70.

Is there any chance you could re-host or re-upload the photos from your write up E170_Driver?

Thanks in advance from over the pond!
