Hi Looking for a new transmission for my 07 xc90 v8, has 127K and runs great, i was wondering of anyone knew if the v8 is a special transmission all its own, or if i can use any 07 or 08 transmission
Hi, The Transmission does this kind of hunt thing, i'm going to first get the BG Flush, and the software reprogrammed by a Volvo Dealer, and see if that takes care of it, the car runs strong with no missed shifts, or flare that i can feel. I have been told by a few shops that it needs a new transmission (Not the dealer yet, i think if these local shops that dont know the car very well, they just suggest replacement, but no real diagnostics have been done.) but the car has been running great, and never hunts when cruising at 75 MPH down the highway, only under part throttle, or when i release the throttle to coast. I think that a safe tranny fluid interval is 30-45K miles, i have done this with our 08 XC90 6 Cyl, and have had zero issues in 101K miles. I will keep you updated as to what happens, going in on FridayNot that I have any answers for you but more interested in what went wrong with your original box.
Am new to volvo and just purchased a 2007 xc90 v8 myself. Has 105,000 on the clock. Plan on doing intermediate services with mine 15,000km seems a bit long winded
Can you describe it more accurately?Hi, The Transmission does this kind of hunt thing ...
I had an auto trans which did similar things. Was short on trans fluid! It did leak!Also had another car that had the trany removed and rebuilt. They had it for a few weeks. They adventually gave it back saying they couldn't fix it. Took it to another mob who re built it again. They bagged the last mob saying they didn't do a good rebuild. They put it back together and then still showed similar symptoms. They replaced the trans computer and problem solved. Very costly experience for us. $200 flush is a small % of replacement/rebuild. Fluids and 1 hrs labour if that.
Would that help with the tranny trying to drive over the brakes when stopped at a light, (when i'm stopped at a light the transmission is still under load trying to pull away)it got much better after fluid flush, but you can feel it stillYour transmission needs a new valve body.
