Just seems hard to imagine that there's not a logical reason why some of these things seem to last way longer than others. If you believe this information does not accurately characterize your car, please. Thanks for your help :blush: My guess is you need to look a bit closer, back near the firewall. Suggestions of things to look at when I test drive later this week? Detach it from the connection to the cooler. Preparing to check the oil level Park the car on a level surface. Surely you can find a rebuilt or even a new unit from an independent mechanic that costs half that.
I couldn't find it neither. If you know the fluid has been changed. Select the parameter for the gearbox oil temperature. I just drove it diagonally across the country about 4000 miles. Do these cars have automatic transmission dip sticks? Those who don't are having nothing but problems. Add transmission fluid yourself versus going to a service station, to save time and money.
Detach the return hose in the cooler. Use it to drain engine oil or transmission fluid directly through the dipstick tube. Even if the valve body is the cure it isn't cheap. It is a five cylinder. Hi all, I'm new here! If it's not, it updates and should generate some paperwork that can be printed off. I highly recommend changing the transmission oil often to protect the transmission.
Our research indicates that your vehicle does not have a transmission fluid dipstick. I have never owned a Volvo before, and think it will probably be quite a step up from my 11 year old Kia! I asked about replacing the transmission fluid, and they responded that it would be a waste of money. I would not put anything in it that doesn't say 'Volvo' on the bottle. Engine must be warm but do not get it too hot under there or you will not be able to get your hand down there to pull the dipstick out. What evidence did the dealer provide for their claims that the fluid was not original? Some questions if anyone has time. If its an automatic, you've got a dipstick. Are we talking about the same car? Changing the fluid is like putting a keyboard in front of your cat and telling it to write a novel.
If all else fails, call the local Volvo Dealer, ask for the service writer. As for the Engine,clean bill of health. Good luck Keep us posted. On a lube-related note, you may want to get some for your butt before you go to the dealer to buy it for the trans. May be hidden behind a hose or some wiring. Caution: Wipe the dipstick with a nylon cloth or similar. Good luck Keep us posted.
Refilling Apply the parking brake. Only one of these few plugs is the one for adding fluid, with one exception - the dealership or experienced mechanic needs to do it. Your car must be level when the fluid is checked and we therefore recommend having a mechanic with a hydraulic lift or underground bay check your transmission fluid. Note: Carry out the check at an oil temperature of +80 C. Hi there, Welcome to the forum. Good luck, and I hope you'll rate this information and deem it no less than helpful.
No mess, no waste - easy to use. Complete with stopper cap and hang tab. The 5 cylinder is down on the frt of the transmission and is a small yellow handle sticking out of the dipstick tube between the transmission and the engine cooling fan. Not suitable for fuels or solvents. In the parking garage last week trying to go from stopped on an uphill it almost did not want to go forward. Fill with approximately 2 liters of oil. It seems back to normal now, except maybe I can hear the engine more than usual.
Do not use a cloth which may leave fluff or threads. The 7 seater model, very practical. Note: Cars with Geartronic gear selector assemblies: P-R-N-D-Man. No comparison between a Volvo and a Kia obviously. I know there is no actually dip stick, but if i added the new fluid with a pressure siphon while engine not running thru the cooler line, why will that not work? For superior mobility it utilizes a manual pump, so compressed air or electricity is not required. To add transmission fluid, use the same dipstick tube and a kitchen funnel good time to purchase a new funnel for the kitchen. Allow the engine to idle.
