Question Answered: 

Start with checking the fuses and then you will need to perform an electrical circuit diagnosis to see what was damaged in the coil circuit.

Question Answered: 

This means the transmission computer has registered a fault with the transmission. A fault can be recorded for many different reasons, so it's best not to guess what the cause, or fix might be. You can read the codes without any tools, just search for the instruction, pull the codes from the engine and transmission computers, post them and we can offer better advice.

Hello Mister Cee, We are adding new Top Shops everyday, but unfortunately we haven't found one in Las Vegas just yet. But don't worry, I'm confident there are great shops in your area that can fix your Saturn for you, and we will help you find one. We can send you a list of a few shops soon with some information about each shop, but I'll need one thing first. What type of service or repair do you need at this time? Thanks, Bret Bodas RepairPal Inc.

Question Answered: 

Hey Neil, Volvo had quite a few issues with these transmission, so it's likely too late to fix this, it may need to be replaced, especially since the fluid was burnt. However, you can stil take a few measures to try and address this. I would make sure the fluid is the correct type and the level is OK, and have the transmission software is up to date. After updating the SW, a proper test drive must be performed to ensure the shift patters are adjusted correctly, this is called "setting adaptation". Best to have a Volvo shop do this. Good luck.
