Hi there,<p>My 04 R hammers from 2nd down to first when coming up to a stop street. This is only after driving about 5km and it doesn't do it when the engine is cold. I tried going manual but also, it gives a kick when going 2nd to 3rd or 2nd to first. The rest of the gears are perfect. If I change at revs as low as 2500 up to 3rd or down to first, it knocks quite badly.<p>Volvo suggested I throw my box away and buy another one <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> . Yeah right.<p>I was thinking possibly a solenoid or 2 being faulty or dirty? Perhaps the torque converter? There were no TCM codes when Volvo checked it and I have flushed the gearbox and loaded CPU updates from Volvo with no change.<p>Any ideas would be of great help. Thanks

185 000km<p>The knocking has been there for about 8 000km and I have just replaced the engine mounts. I am pretty sure my engine mounts will break again if I do not find the problem with the gearbox.

Sounds like the valve body is going out. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

Re: 04 GTR Geabox Problems? (Franky)

After some researching, I found that it is a crap job but I don't need to remove the gearbox. I can take the valve body out and clean it. If it is dirty, it will cause the gear shifts to knock.<p>The knock is as if it is changing too quickly.<p>Does anyone have any other ideas? I might just send it in to a gearbox place but I know they are going to charge me an arm, leg & a tooth for this.
