SOURCE: gearbox oil
there is a pan at the bottom of the transmission that you can drain the fluid from.... you'll need to get a new gasket and it's a good idea to change the filter at the same time. usually you can buy that in a kit that includes both... most automatics don't have a drain hole. but be aware that you have to make sure that that is the correct transmission fluid for the tranny.
also realize that draining the pan and changing the filter is good maintenance but there is still a large amount of flud in the torque converter and transmission cooler.
I'm not sure how advisable it would be to mix the two types of fluid
changing the filter might be a better option... also when you do that there is a small magnet in the pan ... it catches any small metalic flakes as the bands wear.
and while you have the pan off you can adjust the bands... you'll need a manual to make suire that is done properly... that is if that transmission requires adjustment.... as far as i know the new electronic transmissions don't need to be adjusted.

their isnt one you have to slacken the sump bolts to drain the oil.Also why are you changing the oil has it been contaminated??if its not dirty with water from a flood or something then do not touch and stop listening to part time weekend bar room know it all know nothing so called mechanics.automatic gearboxes only use the oil to work the torque converter and fill the pistons up to operate the epyicyclic gears ,whilst its working ok do not touch,and as for a haynes handbook look carefully and see if the writers are members of the institute of road transport engineers, ??? They wasnt last time i looked at one and threw it in the boot of the car after some clever ******** of a customer was trying to tell me my job with his blue anorak on and his mr inteligent glasses.Didnt do 6 yrs college to have some nerd try telling me how to fix a poxy volvo

I had the same problem I changed the transmission fluid & put a new filter in the trans, this fixed it good until I put my foot down to overtake the trans kicked down to 2nd gear & the hold light started flashing again & the trans started slipping again. I stressed over it for a day or 2 & then I took it out for a drive & thrashed it, Low & behold it came right. When you change fluid its impossible to get all the old fluid out because the torque converter holds a liter or two under pressure, so when I put my foot down some of the gunk blew through & blocked the pump it looses pressure & cant change gear. You need to get it flushed by a transmission specialist
