Volvo Manual Transmissions
MVS Forums member Someguy3331 wants to know how to identify Volvo manual transmissions so that he can order the correct clutch for his:
“I recently picked up a ’95 T5R that had a manual transmission swapped in it in about 2002 I believe, the guys I got it off of started parting it out for some reason. Basically it has everything left in it for a manual swap but not much else. I know the car was originally and auto, I was hoping someone might be able to help me identify which transmission it was when I order a clutch for it for when I swap the trans into my other Volvo.”
Bonus! Volvo Facts
Volvos go the distance
The highest recorded mileage on a Volvo is three million, which has been clocked up by American Irv Gordon in the P1800 he’s owned since he bought it new in 1966. That’s a lot more than the figure needed to join Volvo’s high mileage club: 150,000 miles gets you bronze membership, 300,000 secures silver, and 500,000 makes you a gold member. In each case, a special badge can be ordered to share your vehicle’s achievement with the world. And of course, the existence of such a club tells you everything you need to know about the durability of Volvo’s vehicles.
