What should I do?
Hello and welcome to our web page here my name is***** a Certified Volvo Car Expert Mechanic.I'm going to try today to answer your can problem with trans internal . But what you should do first before any repair . Run fault code scan on trans computer see if any error codes are stored if yes fix them . If that is good next step you will do . Best step now is use at VOLVO dealer transmission software update , then reset adaptation what will delete all shift points then you re learn transmission with new shift points for all gears . You also check fluid condition replace if it needs at same time . If that don't help then you move to internal parts like transmission control valve body !
