Why is my transmission not delivering any drive power? The RPMs just race.

Asked by Jan 28, 2015 at 10:21 AM about the Volvo XC70

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The transmission on 1999 Volvo xc70 does not engage after it’s warmed up. It delivers no drive power whatsoever in any gear, including reverse. I shut the car down, wait 5 minutes and I can drive it again, but only a very short distance (few hundred feet) before it disengages again.  The colder the weather the longer it takes for this problem to appear.

Might be a solenoid issue or internal to the trans. How is the fluid? have a shop diagnose it for you. Not a simple answer and fix.

The fluid is not clean red, but more brownish. Is solenoid external or does transmission need to be dropped to get to it.
