thanks again for the replies

i know the saabs ran the aw50-42 trans as well but not sure if it's a plug/play sort of thing. plus there are a lot of vo-vos at the yards around me so best to stay with what i know.

there was a '98 v70r auto that i pulled the front bumper from a little while back but i'm sure it's gone by now.

since i have no codes and my vss is measuring 462 ohms and i has no flashing arrow
perhaps, i should try a flush before i condemn the vehicle. worth a try since fluid is free from my jobby job.

and opposed to the earlier post: these trannies do NOT necessarily go out around 100k.
my 96R has 200.000 miles on the dirst tranny (knock on wood) as well as my 95 10V with the same mileage. I know quite some people with high mileage 850ies on their first AT.
So you and your friends all have the four speed tranny. I heard they hold up better than the five speeds, dont quote me on that though. Yet again, if the fluid was changed at least once chances are of course higher that the unit will last longer. The 5speed volvos with tranny problems i see rarely has over 200k.

yes, all 4 speeds. the 5 speeds are fragile, of course

i'm not giving up yet. i just got a check engine light and a flashing arrow. along with flashing W and E/S when switched to either sport or economy mode. (CEL was not on before)

p0500 sensor A. i believe i tested the output sensor but not input.

does ANYONE have a picture or link to the location of the input sensor? i tried this link for reference. #37b but not sure. thought maybe someone might have a trans sitting out.

I actually did burn out a clutch on my P2, but I don't think it was me who did. Pretty sure Volvo only put one bolt on the release bearing, and also the PO must have ridden the clutch in bad city traffic. Plate worn down to 4mm.

The longevity of Volvo clutches (by SACHS) is incredible, Im guessing dual mass flywheels take off a lot of the damage to the clutch lining by easing the engagement.

My T5 is at 240k on original and never a chatter or grab

Dude, stick! I grew up driving sticks only and I will never go back! Automatic is the way to Volvo :) Especially in this traffic it's just not possible I think.
