I have a 2000 (new shape) V70 T5 Geartronic with 5-speeds. I have been having problems for last 12-18 months with the gearbox slipping when it is doing a full-throttle gearchange from 2nd to 3rd. The symptom is that the engine revs in an uncontrolled manner during the gear change which can lead to engine over-speeding. This is an intermittent problem.
The car went to the Volvo main dealer last year and they upgraded the software. This did not solve the problem but seemed to introduce another problem. This transmission slipping when changing from 2nd to 3rd now also occurs at part throttle changes. Again this is intermittent.
I do have a double clonk when engaging drive, but I do not have any problems with the transmission going into neutral at stand-still.
Last 6 digits of the VIN are 001060.
Volvo main dealer seems to be saying that I need to replace the whole transmission.
Any help or advice is appreciated.
