Continue your arbitration, <B>you need a new tranny</B><br>You have done all you can do and since that hasn't worked a transmission is in order.<br>BTW miles (km)? and was it ever flushed... until now!

Re: 2005 R harsh downshift? still after approx 12K of warranty (JRL)

Bought the car 12 months ago with 55000 klm now has 92000 KLM<br>Transmission was replaced 80000 KLM with no improvement. However VOLVO canada replaces them with rebuild not new. <p>Never flushed that I know of.....not that it matters now with new tranny in,<p>Spoke to an independant who said its posible that tranny has the same issue but unlikely....thinks its something else.<p>

No<br>Trans/Electronic <B>Control Module</B>/Trans <B>adaptation</B>/valve body/Celenoid have all been replaced.<p>Tranny module onlt (TCM)<p>BTW to the OP, this dealer doesn't know squat. A new TCM never fixes this problem.<br>Why didn't they just install a new trans in the first place, makes no sense?
