Customer Question

I have a 2004 Volvo S80 T6 turbo. The car will move and drive just fine if it is cold, once it gets warm it won't move at all, like it is in neutral.

I can move it around and drive with no problem for about five minutes.

Hi , Sorry for the Delay.......Had to Leave. Well Anyway, If that's the Case the Filter is Collapsed & or Very Restricted not allowing Fluid to the Pump. However on your Model Transmission it can not be Changed Unless the Transmission is Removed & Taken Apart to replace the Filter......Again Thanks Joey.....Ask me more if you like

Thats a bummer. Do you think it would be economical to remove the transmission, have it repaired and put it back in or replace it with a remanufactured? My local salvage yard wants $1040 for one with 115,000 miles on it, I'm a bit aprehensive about using it. It might fail after 5000 miles, who knows.
