The fluid for most automatic transmissions and in some cases manual transmissions recommend a fluid exchange of at least every 30,000 miles.
I found that a mechanic that used non Volvo transmission fluid caused this problem in my 2002. Once it was replaced with genuine Volvo transmission fluid it stopped surging.
that the seal around the pan is comprimised or the transmission seal is comprimised and either one has to be replaced
The transmission fluid on a Volvo 850 is added to the filler tube. This is accessed by removing the dipstick and inserting a funnel.
Volvo says that their automatic transmission has a lifetime fluid that does not need to be changed. On the other hand, most experts recommend replacing the transmission fluid every 30,000 miles to extend transmission life and prevent premature transmission failure.
It's a sealed transmission. You'll have to take it to a Volvo dealership.
Volvo tries to charge and arm and a leg and a pinky for their Volvo Transmission Fluid. The fluid is the same as Mobile 3309 transmission fluid. You can also use Toyota's T4 fluid as well. Both cost a FRACTION of the cost of what Volvo charges. And on top of this, I spoke with a transmission place, and they told me that a standard $80 fluid change is all that's needed and that you don't even need any "special" transmission fluid. This latter point is on you to decide. Speak with a transmission specialist and also research with Google about the Mobile 3309, you'll see.
The transmission fluid is inside of your transmission if you are looking for the dip stick in Volvo its underthe hood hiding next to the block twords the back of the vehicles

It's the fluid inside the transmission that lubricates the gears and allows the transmission to function properly. It should be replaced with Diamond SPT III transmission fluid.
To add automatic transmission fluid to a 1997 Volvo v70, one must simply find the reservoir for transmission fluid and pour the fluid in the top. To locate the reservoir, one can consult the owners' manual.
The transmission on the s60 has no serviceable filter. What is recommended is to flush the transmission fluid using a good grade synthetic fluid such as Castrol Syngard.
in your tranny fluid check tube you will need a funnel
Transmission fluid is added through the transmission dipstick. Suggest you get a long thin funnel with a small opening in order to fit into the dipstick opening
dextron III or IV

There isn't a reservoir. Fluid goes directly into the transmission housing.
it depends on the make & model of the transmission.
The type of transmission fluid to use should be engraved into your automatic transmission fluid dipstick ( at least it is on the newer model years )
Transmission fluid should be a nice burgundy red color. If it is brown or black, this is a sign of transmission trouble. If the fluid smells burnt, the transmission will probably need replaced.
You don't. It uses a small amount of transmission grease similar to the grease in the rear end.
You can add transmission fluid, by using a funnel. Place the funnel in the same to of which you check the transmission fluid. Do not over fill the transmission.
Yes it does. The proper way to check automatic transmission fluid is to check it while engine is at idle.
Just pull out the dipstick, feed the tall, narrow transmission fluid funnel into the dipstick tube and top up as required.
The transmission fluid dip stick is a yellow cap that is located behind the lower radiator hose. Its hard to find but if you move some of the cables and hoses that are close to the transmission case it will be there.
