2001 Volvo S60 Q&A
2001 Volvo S60 Question: The car periodically will rev without power transfer to the wheels.
The car periodically will rev without power transfer to the wheels. This happens infrequently and without anything else being associated with the event. After stopping for a traffic light or when waiting to turn left, when I attempt to accelerate, the engine will rev without power transfer to the wheels. After a few seconds of reving the power is transferred to the wheels. - RBok
This sounds like the transmission is acting up. I suggest you have a Volvo shop/dealership look at it, make sure the software in the transmission computer is up to date, the fluid is in good condition, and there are no faults with the transmission. They should perform a full diagnostic of the computer system to ensure everything is in working order. Good Luck.
