Transmission Service Required 2001 Volvo S60 T5

\015 The other day while driving my car suddenly jolted and slowed down dramatically. The check engine light came on and the little exclamation came on with a message saying ''Transmission Service Required.''\015\012\015\012What does this mean?\015\012\015\012I just had an engine coil and spark plugs - along with my timing belt fixed just about a month and a half ago. My car seems to be fine at highway speed but not at slower speeds.\015\012\015\012It has jolted a few times before this, since I have had my car fixed.\015\012\015\012Thanks\015\012T\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 12-03-2018

These cars had a few issues with the transmissions. Sometimes upgrading the software and flushing the transmission will help, sometimes a new valve body will fix the problem, but often the transmission will need replacement due to internal failure.

The first step is to have a shop read out all the fault codes, read all the service bulletins and tech notes from Volvo regarding the transmission problems and then make a decision based on all of that information.

Good Luck,

I have a 2001 Volvo S60. Everytime I come to a stop the transmission acts like it shifting from drive to nuetral back and forth. When I let off brake it goes in gear and runs, shifts etc.. just fine?? I notice it goes away in hot weather and gets worse in cooler weather? I'm in Arizona.\015\012I have checked the Transmission fluid level which is fine and the trans was service 25k miles ago.\015\012What could this be caused from?\015\012Thanks Tom
