Before attempting this locate the oil filter and be sure YOU can access it comfortably with a filter wrench. You will also need to locate the drain plug on the lowest portion of the underside of the engine oil pan. The plug likely has an Allen key insert so be certain you have the correct wrench to match, along with matching filter and oil pan plug seal.. Rotate the plug counter clockwise to loosen. I change and drain mine with the oil filler cap off so air can help the drainage. Then I unscrew the filter and reinstall a fresh one being certain the gasket are is clean on the engine surface. Reinstall fresh filter hand tight, two hands. Install drain plug by hand so as not to cross thread with a fresh seal if required, hand tighten with wrench. Then fill resevoir with at least 4 ltrs recommended oil checking dipstick so as not to overfill. After starting check for any drips of clean fresh oil;
There no tranny drain plug, you must drop the pan to change the fluid and filter. Standard fluid is fne. I believe Dextron3 but double check with the autoparts store (tell them you have a volvo) and they can lookup the correct type of ATF.
Drive the vehicle for about 1 minute to warm up the fluid a little.
Locate the 'pumpkin' on the rear axle. It is in the center of the axle.
Now locate the two caps. The upper cap is for filling, the lower for draining.
FIRST - loosen & remove the upper cap...just in case.
Second, place a oil pan below the drain plug...loosen and replace the drain plug. Allow to drain for 10 minutes.
Install drain plug, tighten to spec. (snug)
Add proper amount of fluid in top filler hole. You WILL need a hand pump or other device as this is impossible to do using the gallon jug of VTM4.
