05 v70 xc shudders when put in reverse

Post by dgcantrellsr »

I'm trying out a 05 V70 xc w 132k and when you put it in reverse it shudders and vibrates the whole car. Don't do it in any other gear. How do these things act when trans is starting to go?

Your problem fits bad front engine mount (under crank pulley) and upper torque mount worn out. I am assuming it isn't shuttering for 1-2 seconds but the wwhole time it idles in R.

After thinking about this would it not quick shaking when the slack gets taken up by the trans and you are not moving and got your foot on the brake.

These luxury cars lure you in with the gorgeous interior and ride, thinking you can get a deal on a top end ride by just fixing a trans problem for cheap.

It rarely works out that way unless you can do Transmissione work, internal, yourself, like Mike. Otherwise it's a parts car at a $500 price
