Heavy rubbing sound whenever making a turn. A log showing the failure they are reporting was not an isolated incident may be helpful when trying to negotiate some assistance to fix. Leak slowed, not all the way gone yet Ventilation fan failed. Repair was easy, once problem was identified, but that took a while. I bought kit to restore plastic lenses polishing them and a film to protect them. This Volvo dealer has told me the problem cannot be repaired because: 1 the vehicles diagnostic system does not report any diagnostic codes, 2 their own technicians cannot diagnose the problem, and 3 Volvo technicians cannot determine the problem.
I think actual control arm was replaced too? First visit 1 day : battery replaced. It is a low level noise but nevertheless a noise. At this point, if there's no remedy, we just as soon dump the vehicle then keep driving it. Shutting the vehicle off for a short period of time and restarting may allow it to move again but only for a very short distance. When this happens you get similar symptoms as you have described with lost drive to the rear wheels, grinding and torque steer.
Often times the 2nd clutches are badly burned and damaged in these vehicles as well as 3rd clutches. Dropping the lower pan for inspecition often shows heavy amounts of dark colored debris in the pan. Has anyone had success getting any action out of Volvo over this or is that like fighting city hall? Problem solved after sensor connections were checked and fastened. Front left and right fog lamp bulbs replaced. Loss of movement, Possible whine noise: Another problem that we see often with these models is complete loss of movement after driving and wont move in any shifter range.
Their are multiple people with the same problem. Fuel door plastic locking latch broken, in search of replacement door. As with the S80 models- if the transmission has failied then there will be a lot of debris in the system and the cooling system needs to be replaced. Shop in Fl has done 2x on this vehicle. Tightens another cooling hose to stop leak.
I have also problem with xc90 awd, Front wheels are spinnig and rear not. Most often in this situation you can feel the vehicle wanting to shot off to either the left or right on hard acceleration from stand still starts as the thrust centre line is way off spec. Yup, we already did the alignment thing, new tires, etc etc etc. It will help me understand how everything works? Replace engine torque mount Replaced engine torque mount. After much research this is a known problem with the Volvo transmission in this model manufacturer refuses to acknowledge. One side of 3rd row seats would not go down when in the up position. It is mounted very low and can collect a bit of dirt and debris, also rocks and other chunks of debris you don't plan on running into.
When the plug falls out of place the transmission fluid enters the axle and cv grease mixes and goes back into the transmission. Also replaced oil temp sensor for rear diff. Drivers side front axle leaking: This is not a problem that you may even know is going on, but one that should be taken seriously and inspected. The failure mileage was 500 and the current mileage was 65,000. My suggestion s would be the following: 1. . I'm actually getting quite disappointed with the vehicle's reliability now.
Often the rear stay bars on the rear lower control arm can get bent from backing into a low object. Next day fan continued to run after car is off result-dead battery. Hope you resolve the matter soon as I can appreciate the stress it is causing. After 10 years of Landrovers this car is a dream to drive except that it has an annoying rotational noise which I think is generated within the automatic transmission. Cleaned up standing water on front passenger side and removed carpets to be dried. I changed the tranie fluid every other oil change 10K miles that would be every 5k miles I change my oil. The noise is new and was not like anything we have heard before.
The factory design didnt allow enough compensation for wear- so the result is normally poor shift feel and long or lazy shifts, especially the 1-2 shift which leads to eventual failure. Has anyone out there experienced the same? On the little module forward of the rear differential? Our test drive did not reveal the issue. A shift kit does not make up for excessive clutch clearances but does speed up the time the clutch will apply. Front tires were just over a year old, so we knew the problem was beyond bald tires. Within 1,500 miles, I detected what I thought was road noise.
This improves the overall traction of the vehicle and helps it do better off-road or on slippery surfaces. When you remove the bolt you experience dark colored transmission running out that seems like it never wants to stop. If they remove the driveshaft and the noise goes away, that probably means the driveshaft is making the noise. Who knows what would have happened if I was on the highway. Replaced coolant and spark plugs too. I put Bridgestone Potenza tires on the car and it was like a new car again.
