I have a 2004 Volvo S80 T6 with about 170K miles. This

I have a 2004 Volvo S80 T6 with about 170K miles. This morning, it jolted when starting up at a stop light. At the next stop light, there was little to no power being transferred to the wheels, even though the RPMs went up. After turning off the engine for a while, I was able to hobble to a parking lot, but once stopped, it would not move in either direction. I am assuming a transmission failure, but am looking for validation because I am still trying to decide where to take it (AMCCO, the Dealer, or the dump). I had the ABS module rebuilt about six months ago for another issue. Since everything is interconnected, I am wondering if that could be the problem.

Today it was 37 so freezing should not be aproble.. thoughts?

I have a 98 volvo v70 R AWD turbo and am having to replace

Hello, I have a 98 volvo v70 R AWD turbo and am having to replace the front axles, considering I live in an area where AWD is never necessary would it be possible to delete most of the front axles(gotta leave at least half of the cv shaft in correct? so it doesn't leak) so I guess my question is "is this possible without screwing things up? thanks
