Hopefully just temporarily.

I knew the transmission needed service, but it was... unhappy last night. Slight delay between shifts, little bit of flutter at one point... all bad things.  No codes, though I haven’t checked the transmission ECU recently, but clearly the signs of needing service.


Getting the pan/filter on order today or tomorrow and will get after it next week. In the interim it gets it sit in the driveway and think about what it did.

Luckily these transmissions, allegedly, respond well to a good service.... hopefully. Because I’m used to the horror stories about Volvo’s that get an ATF fluid change and then stop working altogether.
