    I believe you check it in the very front, yellow dipstick. Sort of low. Volvo claims the fluid is "lifetime", but flushing it is a good idea as "lifetime" is a lot shorter if it's never flushed.

    Ooops. Pressed enter too soon. I don't recall if these require the "3309" fluid, but yes, any garage should be able to flush it. Ensure they don't "power flush" it, but let the car pump out a couple of quarts, then refill a couple, etc. Do it this way until the fluid coming out is as clean as the fluid going in.

Your Volvo ATF is within the service limit but if you are experiencing slippage there may be some other problem that a drain and fill is not going to correct.

SOURCE: where is the drain plug located on a Volvo 2000

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.

SOURCE: 03 petrol S40 wont start, clicking from starter

Your starter is not hitting the flywheel. can be solenoid, can be something else. Starters are consumables, so if in doubt - get a new one.

You should not push start any AUTOMATIC transmission car. Any other is safe to push start.

Car alarm keeps going off. How to fix this


There could be various reasons why it is being set off. It could be a faulty shock sensor, or you could have a battery drain while car is off. Alarms check for voltage changes while engaged. (That would mean you have an electrical problem) . the battery voltage may be too low. (Or a bad battery/charging circuit)or the alarm itself is malfunctiong.

How to flush the radiator


After the car has been sitting still for awhile, so that the water isn't hot enough to scald you, open the top vent and put the vent aside. Next, open the stop **** at the bottom of the radiator, and let the fluid drain into a container that you have placed directly under the stop ****. That's so the fluid won't get all over your garage floor. After most of the fluid has drained out, then take your garden hose and fill up your radiator, then let it drain once more. After that, you can put in ethylene glycol ( engine coolant) and maybe an anti-rust additive if the fluid you drained looked brown or reddish. Make sure you closed the stop **** at the bottom of the radiator all the way. When full, replace the top vent, making sure it's also closed and secure completely. All done.

How to check & change oil in automatic transmission on 2001 Audi A4

At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up. Tightening torque is 24 Nm for drain plug, respective 80 Nm for filler plug.

Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping)
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.
3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg).
4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible.
5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle.
6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan.
7. Remove ATF filler plug (at the bottom of the automatic gearbox you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up.
8. With ATF temperature between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg), for warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg), a slight amount of oil will flow from filler hole when ATF level is correct.
9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole.
NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening.
CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off.
10. Reinstall ATF filler plug. Tightening torque is 80 Nm.

Trans prob


You can NOT check ATF when the engine is off. It must be running. If the ATF is dark, brown, or smells burned, then you need to change it, but it is probably too late. When you turn the engine off, the fluid in the torque converter drains back and gives a reading much higher than real.
