Default s80 d5 auto gearbox problem.

hi all,
The auto box is playing up.its ok or short local journeys.no problem,but on longer trips 30 miles or so the auto box stops changing gears properly.it seems to stick in 3rd or fourth & wont change up or down ,unless selected manually.
any ideas?

Hi,

Any fault codes? Get them read JIC

What does the gearbox oil/fluid look like? Clean/pinkish or dirty/burnt?
Is the level Ok?
Depending on the above a change/flush of the gearbox may be appropriate...

Error codes can be read by plugging a diagnostic error code reader into your car. Volvo can do this for you or most decent independant garages that have code readers.

as Des said get the codes read asap. 'Tranmission service required' message means a fault logged in the gearbox ecu. until that message is erased/checked the gearbox will be in 'limp home' mode. Gear changes will be all over the place
