Transmission problem

Question : I HAVE a 1997 Volvo 850 T5 experiencing auto transmission problems.

Lately, after draining the ATF to facilitate replacement of the drive shaft. I had the transmission filled with Volvo original ATF Dextron III.

Now the reverse gear won't work at all.

Other gears are working fine though.

I have double checked the ATF level with the engine running and it shows sufficient fluid level at the current temperature.

There is no sign of oil leak.

Answer : It appears that you did not touch the transmission except to refill it.

I think the problem may be just a stuck valve and would mean taking down the valve block and cleaning it out.

It may be just dirt that has jammed a valve.

I suggest that you get someone familiar with A/Ts to have a look at it.
