Add transmission fluid
Thank you for choosing fixya.com. Chances are, you have purchased a new model of which there is no dipstick for checking the tranny fluid. I know that an earlier model of the Isuzu Trooper had the same thing and drove me crazy looking for the silly dipstick only to find out there isn't one. The situation is this. Supposedly, one does not need to change the fluid for several (over 3,000) miles before having the fluid changed. However, though it may appear that there is no way to change the fluid, there is infact a place to do so, however - it's tricky - you see, if you look at the top of your transmission (front wheel drive/AWdrive), there are about 3-4 plugs. Only one of these few plugs is the one for adding fluid, with one exception - the dealership (or experienced mechanic) needs to do it. The other plugs, as I am told are used for hold parts of the transmission in place on the inside, and if taken out, severe and excruciating damage can be done. So, I would suggest contacting the Volvo dealer or service center and finding out more about this. I am no certified mechanic, and can tell you I have never worked on a Volvo, there I recommend taking it to someone who has and can serve a much better purpose them I , or accomplishing this task for you.
I do thank you however, agian, and sincerely, for choosing fixya.com for answers to this questions. It is a frustraing one I know, and my sincere apologize for my inability to help you better.
Good luck, and I hope you'll rate this information and deem it no less than helpful. Thank you, and take care.
