Volvo Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Is this a manual or auto gearbox?
Any unusual noises from the engine or smoke , warning lights etc?
Does it feel likes its stuck in one gear or does it kick down when take you foot off the peal and reapply?
Ok.. i think first off - you need to make sur thatnone of your brakes are stuck on and holding the car back..you'd more or less know that if one or two of the wheels feel alot hotter than the rest...so might be worth ruling that out ,just to be sure... One other thing you could try is to get the gearbox serviced..by that i mean, drain out the old oil for inspection and new oil added in..and then see how that performs then
Difficult to say without actually testing it first to prove if its faulty or not, or just stuck with carbon which can be cleaned out..but it maybe something to look into if all else above is ruled out..
