Re: Still tracking down acceleration vibration 2003 XC70 Topic is solved

I think I might have found the problem yesterday. The right lower motor mount looks pretty bad and oil soaked. I have changed the upper mounts and transmission torque mount about a year ago. I will now order the two hydraulic mounts and the right lower and report back.

Re: Still tracking down acceleration vibration 2003 XC70 Topic is solved

Yeah new tires last year, the vibration is on acceleration from zero to about 60 kmh, goes away when coasting and decelerating. I’m going to look at the mounts tomorrow, also remove the prop shaft because I have to replace the Haldex pump next week. I’ll take it for a spin without the shaft and see ...

Re: '04 Transmission FWD rebuild?

Sounds like it needs a DIM overhaul. That's about 4-500 USD.

Re: '04 Transmission FWD rebuild?

I would, also see how the maintenance history looks if he has any records, and if the CEL is on. That's generally what I look for when considering a new used vehicle. For many people that cannot do DIY repairs, the cost estimates at a shop or worse yet, a Volvo dealership are prohibitive, particular...

Re: '04 Transmission FWD rebuild?

How many miles on it? I had about 220,000 miles on mine and it was displaying symptoms of a transmission failure/ slipping, etc. After some research I concluded that the symptoms could be rectified with a valve body kit and rebuilding or replacing the linear solenoids. I see a lot of xc 70's and V70...

Re: 2000-2008 AW55-50SN Valvebody re-assembly

I rebuilt mine with the Transgo valve body kit with excellent results. I understand Rostra sells new linear solenoids for a reasonable price. Personally, I would do the Transgo kit again. Once you have the VB off it only takes a couple hours to do all the work.

Still tracking down acceleration vibration 2003 XC70 Topic is solved

I still cannot find the cause of this vibration that occurs from a stop while accelerating to about 50 kmh (30mph). I’ve changed the lower control arms, ball joints, halfshafts, wheel bearings, inner and outer tie rod ends, struts, mounts, and strut bearings, stabilizer links, and the upper and lowe...

Re: Dorman Haldex Pump

I picked one up on RockAuto for $252 CDN to the door. That was the best price I found.

Dorman Haldex Pump

Anyone have any input on the quality of these pumps? I am considering buying one instead of the genuine Volvo part out of financial necessity, they are about half the price.
