2001 Volvo aw55-50sn rebuilt but no gears

Post by Kaweh »

Hello, this is my first post! I have rebuilt my 2001 Volvo V70 FW Turbo with an aw55-50sn transmission. It's my first tranmission but not my first time working on a car. So i rebuilt it fully (all seals, clutches, valve body, etc.). Put it back in, put oil in, fired it up. I have no leaks, I had a snap on computer attached and so i have no codes, there is no grinding noise and here it comes..... the transmission does nothing. I can hear a small amount of rpm changes when i change gears. The front of the car is off the ground, I haven't put the brakes and wheels back on. I tested the oil ports on the transmission they all seem to have oil flowing through them. I put a gauge on the main lube shaft port and the SLT but didn't get a response at all. But I didn't reve it up too much. I put it in a new torque converter as well and it is attached to the flywheel. So i have no movement at all. Does anyone know what other tests i can do before dropping the transmission and subframe again? Thanksf or your help in advance!!

You sure you put enough transmission fluid in? Maybe the torque converter isn't full enough?

I just noticed this topic. It's a duplicate, so I'm locking and adding the URL of its mirror.
