According to Volvo the Transmission fluid change interval is every 52,500 for heavy use vehicles ie. towing.

In reality you should change it every 30,000 or so depending on your driving. By 30k it starts to varnish and discolor. There are several Volvo dedicated websites that give you the process if your mechanically inclined v70r.com is currently my favorite. Brickboard.com is also a good one.

This site has a few write ups on various things and operations for flushing.

Just be aware that as in the beginning of the write up you have a P2 car and the fluid flow is reversed. This means you will need to take off the lower cooler hose on the radiator. Yours will be held on by a differant clip as well. You will need to press in on the two green tabs while rotating and pulling the hose out.

Hope this helps.

Auto trani - right ?
You add fluid through were the trani dip stick is.. Its called a filler tube..
Need a funal..

Do it while the engine is on & idling in park.. Its best isall is good & warm..

The dipstick mesures in pints - not quarts so be carefull not to over fill.. Do a little at a time..
Overfilling causes damage..

Hope this helps !!

I would recommend redline D4. It is VW and Audi and Volvo applications at the shop. It is a synthetic fluid. which also cures a lot of drivability issues known with the vw an audi automatics.
