I have approx. 130,000 k on my Volvo and the tranny is sleeping between 2 & 3 gear.Can this be related to a broken or disconnected tranny breather tube??


Please help.

Thank you,
Silvester

Not normally.

Only way the two would be connected is if it were spewing fluid where the break was and low on fluid.

When was the transmission last serviced?

How many miles have you put on the car?

These newer cars are very fluid sensitive. If you don't know, I would take it to the dealer for servicing.

There is some hotly debated conversation about whether a flush is appropriate.

I, personally, believe that powered flushes (done with the proper machine that does not over pressurize the fluid but uses a fluid transfer bladder so as to duplicate the same line pressures) are great.

Depends on the vehicle but take it to the dealer ASAP.
