94 850 Transmission Problem
Posted 27 October 2008 - 03:40 AM
I just bought a '94 850 non-turbo wagon this past friday and seem to have happened upon some problems that my wife and I hadn't noticed on the test drive. On the first drive down the highway we realized that the transmission doesn't shift into 4th gear. It shifts completely fine in all other gears and runs great. It does have 178K miles on it thought. From start off up to 3rd is just fine, but it can be taken up to over 4000rpms and still doesn't shift. Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this problem before I have to take it in to get it checked out. I am very handy with a wrench, but this is my first Volvo so I still have a quite a bit of learning to do. Anything will be helpful.

Check the backup light if it's on when you place into reverse. Do you get the 'up' arrow light when you place the gearshift into 3 or lower gears?
