Customer Question

2000 MkII V70 T5 Auto.
Though there is plenty of power from the engine I keep losing drive almost like a slipping clutch on a manual. Gearbox fluid was changed 6 months ago and has been ok since.
Could this be down to the gearbox ecu and would a full diagnostic check give any answers.
Would you recommend a software upgrade.
Many thanks

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 question.if is good after fluid change it can be indication fluid has failed internal clutches going bad trans fluid overheating . You did right step change fluid now if is good I would not do much . I would still try fresh software upgrade for transmission they changed few parameters how it shifts and controlled . But keep changing now fluid every year for best results to prevent any problems internally what can develop. .
