Has anyone had or heard of a replacement 4 speed tranmission for a XC90 that is not the troubled GM brand, or does it have to be a GM,


sorry to hear of your problems. im no expert, but surfing the net it appears the year range of the faulty 6 cyl turbo transmissions are limited to fitting that transmission only. this is due to limited space. personally, if i had one of those, i would look for a complete motor and tranny swap from a similar year but with the 5 cyl turbo. it has a different 5 spd transmission. later year models have a different type of 4wd system ( from 2006 i think ), therefore it would not be as simple. if you do go for a replacement 'standard' transmission, it would be wise to drive like you're carrying eggs, and ensure tyre sizes, and pressures are always correct. hope that helps.

When it appears on the display "time for regular maintanance" is it just a preset thing or does it means that something it's wrong 'n I should have it checked soon?

thanks for yr help



This is not a serious message. Every Volvo XC90 is programmed with such reminder. As long as you know when you need to service my car. For example, my first service will be at 15000KM. Normally any warning message in yellow is nothing serious. However if you have something in red, then it's serious. Another message you will note is "system engine service required". You can always go to the dealer to have a quick check and have them reset if nothing serious.


Hi we haven't got there yet I'm sorry. But I think I'dresd somewhere it is a reminder?
