Levels:
Transmission fluid level:
The transmission dipstick tube looks like a slightly large oil dispstick tube. It is located near the firewall on the drivers side.
Set parking /emergency brake.
With engine warm and running, pull dipstick and clean off with rag. Insert disptick and pull out. Check fluid level.
To add transmission fluid, use the same dipstick tube and a kitchen funnel (good time to purchase a new funnel for the kitchen). Auto stores also sell "special" funnels with a short rubber hose attached to the end.
Not all transmission fluid is the same. Purchase only the one made for your vehicle (Volvo?)
I hope it was the transmission fluid level that you needed.

    Low fluid light came on. What does it mean?


    This means check the fluid level of the light that came on. For example if the temperature light came on check the coolant level. You can check this by looking at the level of the overflow tank for the correct coolant level. The same thing for the brake or oil light. Check those fluid levels as well.

    Need easy way to take off transmission fluid cap.Trying to check fluid.


    Hello Eddie.

    Checking the fluid level on these cars isn't easy. Not one of the Generals best ideas. There isn't a dipstick under that cap. The fluid level is checked by removing a screw on the side of the transmission while the car is running and sitting level.
    This makes it tricky to do for the average do-it-yourselfer as you not only need to jack up the front of the car but the back end to keep it level. Probably a vain attempt to get the cars back into the dealers shop.

    Anyway, here is the book procedure.

    kiltylake_17.gif


    The fluid level screw is intended to be used for diagnosing a transaxle fluid leak or resetting the transaxle fluid level after service that involves a loss of fluid.

    Inspect

    The fluid level should be checked when the transaxle is near Room temperature or at 40°C (104°F) .

    CAUTION: Removal of the fluid level screw when the transaxle fluid is hot may cause injury. Use care to avoid contact of transaxle fluid to exhaust pipe.

    The engine must be running when the transaxle fluid level screw is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fluid level screw. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid.

    WARNING: Do not turn the engine off with the fluid level screw removed as you can be injured by hot transaxle fluid being expelled out of the fluid check hole.

    1. Let vehicle idle for three to five minutes with accessories off.
    2. Apply brake
    3. Move shift lever through all gear ranges, pausing three seconds in each range.
    4. Place shift lever in Park. Important: Vehicle must be kept level on the hoist.
    5. Raise vehicle on hoist.
    6. Place oil container under fluid level screw.
    7. Remove the fluid level screw with the engine running at idle.
    8. Fluid level should be at the bottom of the fluid check hole. Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of fluid levels, fluid may or may not drain out of the fluid check hole when the fluid level screw is removed. If fluid drains through the fluid check hole, this transaxle may have been overfilled. When fluid stops draining, the fluid level is correct and the fluid level screw may be installed. If fluid does not drain through the fluid check hole, the transaxle fluid level may be low. Proceed to ADDING TRANSAXLE FLUID.
    9. Install fluid level screw. Tighten 12 N.m (106 lb in)
    10. Lower vehicle.
    11. Shut off engine. Adding Transaxle Fluid: With the engine running, add fluid at the vent cap location in half liter (1 pint) increments until fluid drains through the fluid check hole. Allow the fluid to finish draining through the fluid check hole.
    1. Install fluid level screw. Tighten 12 N.m (106 lb in)
    2. Lower vehicle.
    I hope this helps you along.
    Thank you for using FixYa.

    2. With the engine stopped, remove the oil level gauge front the side case of the transaxle.
    3. Check the color and smell of the oil. If it is black in color or smells burnt, further transmission service is needed.
    4. Wipe off oil level gauge with clean cloth.
    5. Fit the oil level gauge to the transaxle side case so that the threads rest on top of the case.
    6. Remove the gauge and check oil level. The level should be between FULL and LOW level line.
