xc70 2008 transmission

Post by volvomadness » Wed Jun 19, 2019 10:27 pm

I had a xc70 2007 that developed issues with its valve body. Typical thud when slowing down or delayed shifting at lower speeds.

Had drain and fill twice and software updates resolved problem a little but still there

I am looking at a 2008 xc70. Do they have same tranny issues?

I'm not familiar with your transmission but going off available information online the 2007 can be repaired without having to do work on the VB according to Trango. "Good news! No need to buy a $1200 Valve Body to FIX these complaints."

My first experience with a shift kit was on a 78 Cougar XR7 with a 351 Windsor. A B&M shift kit was put in during the transmission rebuild. The second is recent with a Transgo Kit for my 03 S80 T6 GM 4T65E Transmission. Not as harsh as the B&M but very solid positive shifts when pushed.

The 2008 XC70 has the TF80-SC according to IPD. It does not look like the transmission for the XC70 is listed as being troublesome? It is also not listed as needing a Transgo Kit? Hopefully someone with more experience and qualified can chime in.

A cursor look at the list does not show the 2008 XC70.
