2002 Volvo S60 Transmission Service

What Does Your Volvo S60 Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your S60’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Volvo S60 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Volvo S60 transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your S60 isn’t working at all.

2002 Volvo S60 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volvo's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Volvo tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your S60’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my S60's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 S60’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
