<p><br> <br>This is just a heads up for those of you who have a 2000 in this forum. Rob at Scanwest Autosport in Seattle Washington has had Great success rebuilding these tranny's. So much so that my wife's 02 XC 70 goes in as soon as he get's back from vacation. Please Do Not be confused we are & have never been the same company. I own Complete Collision & Rob owns Scanwest. if your unsure about the service you'll receive do yourself a favor & do some reading up on them. they've been voted Seattle #1 Saab repair shop for something like 5 or 6 years straight. from my understanding they're willing to service your Volvo. & there trying to take on the line full time. but as many of you know Volvo play's close to the chest. making repair information nearly impossible to get. Rob's working with them to see what they can come up with to ease this situation. Do yourself a favor & read up on what kind of service you'll expect when going there.<p><A HREF="http://www.scanwestauto.com/index.php" TARGET="_blank">http://www.scanwestauto.com/index.php</A> 206-789-2819 I Am in "NO" way affiliated with this company, I hold No interest or share holdings. . . .NADA. just trying to help out those who don't want to end up at the stealer for the sum of 5000.<p><br>............Dave<br>

Re: 2000-2002 tranny's (Scania)

There are a few shops around the Puget Sound area that can rebuild/overhaul the Aisin Warner 55-50SN transmission, just make sure they use the Sonnax brand updated pressure regulator valve kit. They drill and sleeve the bore for the valve. One can also turn the EPC solenoid up a touch for firmer shifts. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

More than my car is worth, certainly.

Jim: where do you get all of your work done, anyway? Maybe I should start taking my car to whatever shop <i>you</i> use (as I'm sure it must know Volvos quite well for you to take your cars there! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> )
