The diagram I found shows it on the back side of the transmission but I have looked from the top and under the car and canny seem to locate it I am getting a P0502 code vehicle speed sensor A circuit low input

The instrument panel will illuminate and the gauges will work for a few days, then stop for about a week and then come back on. No idea why. Any ideas on how to fix? Hoping it's not really expensive. Thanks

Where is one of the wires, either pos or neg, shorting itself and burning out bulbs?

Now the car doesnt start it is competely dead,i bought a new Alternator and the problem still persists pls can some one advice me on what could be the problem.

Hot o cold same. Restarting car after 5 min. gives another few seconds of normal operation then disengages again. Trany was rebuild 2 times , fresh torque convert, valve body was also serviced though no work 100% reliable. It is Panama... Dealer wouldn't touch transmission.. only replacement ..
I need ideas... badly...

transmission fluid for a 2002 volvo v70 XC?

There is no consistency when the whistling sound occurs. It does it while moving, on take off, and slowing down but does not seem to affect the operation of the vehicle. Could this be a belt?

Want it ready for a 16 year old to drive. Brakes are already done. needs a gas fuel door (latch is broken). All else seems good. Saw the 120,000 mile service in the range of 1280.00 Don't think this was done.

The tranny seems to slip intermittently and when it connects there is often a rev and knock. Especially happens on turns where you deccelerate a bit and then accelerate coming out of the turn. It hesitates to kick into gear then "bam"! Sometimes it happens on the highway when you are in higher gears. It is inconsistent. I checked tranny fluid and it was down 3/4 qt and added it. It appears, somehow, to happen less when the tank has at least 1/4 tank of gas in it... When nearing redline it appears to get worse. Car has 110K on it. Ideas?

Normally, the front end makes noise when I turn like a boat rubbing against a dock. steering seems tight and I feel every bump in the road in the steering wheel. On the highway at about 55 mph the car starts to wobble on straightaways, sometimes and on some turns.

I have a 2002 XC70 with 125,000 miles on it. I bought the car used in March of this year, and while it passed a pre-purchase inspection, it developed a hitch between 2nd and 3rd gear shortly thereafter. I haunted web fora and consulted multiple shops. I'd rather ride my bike anyway, so I resolved to drive the car until it died. The slipping and bucking has become much more frequent, and now occurs between most of the lower gears after about 15 minutes of driving. The car is still sound enough (knock on wood) to drive long distances -- just this weekend I drove it 9h without problems, minus a period when the cruise control wouldn't work.

I've been told that I need to replace the transmission and also that I need to replace the solenoid bodies (NB: I had the B4 servo cover replaced, and I might as well have lit $191 on fire). I inquired about a drain and a flush service, and was told by multiple people that both would raise the probability of total transmission failure to 50/50. The car also has a slow radiator leak (something my mechanic said could wait until I have to add coolant every week, and right now I can go 2 weeks without having to top it off), and the throttle body is failing.

Estimated cost of a transmission repair varies from $2000-4000. Radiator service will be $600, and throttle body will be between $600-1000, for an upper end total of $5600-6000.

As far as I know, the engine is sound. Oil has a tendency to disappear (the turbo was serviced right before I bought the car, and I've been told that turbos consume oil), but other than that it seems fine.

Bluebook value is around $5600. MY QUESTION: given that the beast already has 125k miles, is it worth it to plow SOME money into repairs (perhaps not the full amount required) and continue to drive it until it dies (when would that be, anyway?), or should I trade it in and walk away? My brother is a Toyota master tech, and we have been discussing options.

So far, the only thing this experience has taught me is that the five years I spent without a car were the most blissful I will likely ever know.

Thanks.

at first i had 2 codes 1 for mass air flow turbo control valve I replaced mass air flow.When first start up for first half mile ok then will shut off wile driving start in up some times give it throttle it will die sometimes go very easy to get back to were you were may take restarting 5to10 times to get there
