I am a proud owner of a Volvo 850 GLT 2.5 that have a problem of my auto transmission.
The problem is the gear will not change for gear 1st to gear 2nd during cold.
After the transmission warmed, it will have not problem with gear changing at any speed.
Please advise what could be the problem.
Have you followed the Volvo procedure for checking fluid level ??
What color does the fluid look ??
Do you have a check engine light on, a flashing arrow ??
The advise is FREE, you get what you pay for!

if there isnt a flashing light,may be you need to do a ATF change. make sure the flashing arrow dash light works. turn on the ignition, do not start the car, make sure you see an arrow light up on the dash. l think its between the check engine light and SRS. am not sure. but check for that and make sure nobody removed the flashing arrow dash bulb.
