Re: volvo s60 2001
Look under the intake tube near the fan area. You are looking for a yellow tab dipstick with metal holding clip that you need to move and pull the dipstick out.
And the engine should be running and warm.
When you are checking the trans. fluid with the engine running, becareful to keep your hand away from the fan area so your hand or clothing doesn't get caught up in it and do you harm.
Keep in mind that even though the fluid may look dark, it doesn't mean that it needs to be replaced. Take a whiff of it to see if it smells burnt. Look at the fluid on the dipstick for small metal flakes/particles, if it smells burnt or you see metal flakes/particles, you should have it flushed.

Fluid Level Checking Procedure for all Transmissions without a Dipstick:
The transmission temperature must be between 30°C and 50°C before checking can begin. Use the DIS or the MODIC to determine the transmission temperature.
The vehicle must be level and without load. With the engine running, switch on the air conditioning. This will increase the idle speed and ensure that all oil passages in the transmission are filled with oil.
Step on the brake firmly, apply parking brake fully and move the selector lever through each gear position, pausing briefly in each gear.
With the engine running and the selector lever in Park position, remove the filler plug located on the transmission (see picture for location). If a small stream of oil runs out, the fluid level is correct.
If no oil runs out when the filler plug is removed, the fluid level is too low. Add oil until it starts to overflow.
With the engine running, reinstall the oil filler plug and tighten to proper torque. (Refer to section below for proper tightening torque)
Some cars don't have a transmission oil dipstick. You are just supposed to replace the transmission fluid at how many miles the manual tells you.Check the manual to see when the transmission fluid needs to be replaced.
the transmission fluid on the B230f engine with automatic transmission (Volvo 240, 740, 940), goes into the filler neck with the large yellow dipstick. it is located about 5 inches below the oil dipstick. good luck :)
try checking the fluid level if it is even aa half pint off it can cause shift problems, if it is low add some Lucas transmisson oil condtioner this will help it shift smoother. also look at the color of the fluid is it brownish in color? if yes then it's time to change the filter and fluid. if you take it to a shop they chagre about $150.00 but it will keep you from damaging the transmisson. the oil and filter for the transmisson should be changed every 30,000 miles on any car. Thisis oone of the most overlooked items of maintence on cars peopel simply don't know about change the filter and oil till they have to pay for a new transmisson.
level surface, vehicle transmission hot, selector in park, vehicle not running---check dipstick level to be within hash mark lines. Look for orange/red color, and smell dipstick to ascertain a "burnt" odor.
If color is not orangew/red, fluid smells "burnt", and level is low, BE$ CAREFUL!
