Ive recently bought a2006 Volvo S60 2.5T the car ran great

Ive recently bought a2006 Volvo S60 2.5T the car ran great for about 8 weeks. One say last week on the way to town, I gave the car some gas to get across the road and it shuddered and shimied and would not go into passing gear or kick in the turbo. I have since replaced the ignition coils and spark plugs, but the car continues to shutter when I give it gas. The engine light is on but the guy at advance auto said it was an O2 sensor and nothing to worry about. Any suggestions ?

Park the car (2001 Volvo S80 non turbo) and when comeback and start the car everything was normal until I put it in Drive and the car doesn't move. Try Reverse, normal, try 1 moves, try 2 moves, try 3 don't move and of course in drive doesn't move.

Are they corroded?Customer: Perfect condition, like brand new.JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: Yes, I tried. Disconnect the battery, reconnected, nothing, the same problem. Check the fluid looks normal in viscosity, color and level.JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?Customer: Before this problem occurs, the transmission was failing when I make a close u turn, was like it has lower level in fluid. I fill it to the level with fluid and an additive for transmission. Was running perfect until Kaput.

It's fiendish. I'm thinking a drain and replenish, rather

It's fiendish. I'm thinking a drain and replenish, rather than a flush/fill. It's got 178,000 miles and I don;t want a flush to loosen grit and shavings into the transmission. Figure a drain of whatever, 4-6 quarts twice in six months is safer. It's been on my mind because, although my dash says I'm not overheating - even on long drives - the engine has putting out quite a whirring roar at 30 m/h and at 60 m/h - in 5th gear. It settles to a good purr over 70 m/h. So, in the city, the engine is really "working". It 's a 2005 Volvo S40 2.1. Any other possibility it's starting to sound - from the engine, not exhaust - like a a Porsche punching it from a green light?JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?Customer: A year. And the sound is definitely coming from the engine. Again no indication that it is overheating. The tranny fluid is a nasty brown, of course.JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: Yes, myself, if possible. Nothing yet; just was thinking car was aging, but have decided to see if I can give it new life by doing "something" to ease the engine. A mechanic, if necessary.JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?Customer: That's it. Roaring engine as I shift with Geartronic or auto up to fourth; in 5th same working sound until I hot higher speeds. And a fully brown tranny fluid.

I have a 2004 Volvo XC 90 Turbo 6 cylinder with 170k miles

I have a 2004 Volvo XC 90 Turbo 6 cylinder with 170k miles but otherwise in great condition. Purchased used last year from a friend who did diligent service and had to replace the tranny twice due to internal problems. I'm aware 2004 was a bad tranny year for that car as Volvo was using a Buick Regal transmission I believe and Volvo did a class action settlement on that issue in 2012 or 13.The tranny now slipping, has metal shavings noted on tranny flush and my mechanic says his diagnostic device plugged into dash portal reads internal parts problem. Since new tranny $6k and it's a sealed part, any recommendations regarding getting rebuilt tranny vs new tranny vs moving onto next vehicle. We otherwise love the car.Thanx for any advice or experience with this type of situation you can offer.JGF in California
