I personally would drive it until it becomes more prominent. You would hate to throw a transmission at it and find out it's a axle! Both Volvo service departments I use say they wont open and repair or refresh a transmission, replacement only. The new unit does come with a lifetime parts and labor warranty though.MrBreeze wrote: ↑Tue Feb 19, 2019 4:30 amI will be removing the radio from dash and checking if there is fiber optic light coming from the unit, starting there, then will bypass other units if it is working. The Nav unit isn't working either.
Have driven about 200 miles since my original post, the shudder only happens about 10-20% of the time, lots of opinions out there from solenoid to right axle to torque converter, maybe 3rd gear band, or fluid flush. My Volvo mechanic says the dealership just replaces transmissions and rarely takes them apart?? WTH
When my rear main went last year and the transmission was out with 14 years and 158K I opted to put the new unit in since they refused to refresh the unit. In my case the original transmission had no issues yet. I felt the extra $4000 for the new unit as I was already paying the nearly $3,000 in labor. Now if it ever gives any trouble it's on them! Also I am never trading my car in and according to all on here the T6 transmission in my car is a weak link. I didn't like those odds. Oh my T6 is a 2004 and is a different unit but the dealer was clear, no repairs only replacement units. June
