1999 Volvo V70 Problems

Automatic Transmission Shifts Very Hard and Erratic

There are several common complaints regarding Volvo V70 transmission shifting issues. Long shift times between gear shifts, hard shifting, hard downshifting and a loss of transmission operation to name a few.

If the issue is minor, a transmission software update may address this. If available, the software should be updated before any repairs are made. After a software update or repair, the shift adaptation needs to be reset. A good quality Volvo repair shop will know how to perform this task.

There are several technical service bulletins (TSB's) available from Volvo that address these shifting issues and they should be consulted by the repair shop during the automatic transmission diagnostic process.

Regular servicing of the transmission fluid can help with preventing transmission failure, but not in all cases. Follow the suggested fluid replacement interval recommended by Volvo. You will find this in your owners manual, or find it here>>

Door Lock Assembly May Fail

One or more door lock assembly may fail and cause door locking/unlocking problems.

Vibration and/or Noise from Worn Upper Engine Mount

The upper engine mount may wear prematurely. Symptoms may include a harsh feeling when the transmission is shifting and roughness when the engine is idling. Worn engine mounts should be replaced as necessary.

V70 1999, Purchased at 18K, now at 220K, Overall great car..kept up scheduled maintenance (belts, hoses etc.,), at 200K plus replaced radiator/heat core, new struts, control arms, had driver seat leather upholstery and headliner replaced for around $500, looks great, with a little new car smell. Exterior body holding up well (wax it 1 x year) especially in an ocean front area.
just got the car about 3 weeks ago. it was a gift from my darling brother. loves the way that it drives, just all of the warning lights that keeps on popping up.
My 1999 Volvo V 70 is a fantastic car. I bought it just over a year ago from a family that really maintained it well. I bought it with 170,000 miles on it and have driven it over 25,000 miles so far. I had to do brakes on the car, and I charged the AC myself- cheap $26 fix and now the AC is really too cold, I need to turn it off. It is safe, sturdy, and has a really comfortable ride. The ...
