What Does Your Volvo C70 Transmission Do?

They're often easy to notice. Volvo C70 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Volvo C70 transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your C70 isn’t working at all.

1999 Volvo C70 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volvo? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Volvo tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your C70’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your C70 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my C70 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Volvo C70 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Volvo's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
