Question Asked: Transmission failure.
August 24, 2009, 06:20 PM
I am reading where the transmission in these have a high failure rate. I just bought this car with 91k other than a little quick shifting around 37 mile an hour I haven't had any problems. I had a flush done on the transmission just to be safe at Volvo. They installed the 150.00 oil so do I need to get rid of this car or is the 25 whinners on the internet the only ones who have had this problem?

I was adding freon to my car because it wasn't blowing cold. I was using one of these do it your self cans with a gauge attatched. I took it up to what I thought was the correct level. Disconnected lines and closed the hood and suddenly I saw a blast of freon shot out from under the hood. What did I do blow a line. Not blowing cool no more. One hose looks grey at the end.

I would buy my spark plugs from Volvo, and make sure I gap them according to manufacture. If you call Autozone they have the specs for that in there computor if you ask. Your biggest chore is removing the plugs from the deep hole buy a 99 cent magnet at Autozone. P.S. I own this same car. retired army mechanic and former Autozone store manager.
