Check the oil level as follows:

Park the car on a level surface with the engine idling . Slowly move the gear selector lever through all the shift positions and then to position P. Wait 3 minutes before checking the oil level.
As the illustration shows, the dipstick has a COLD and a HOT side. The oil level should between the MIN and MAX marks. Wipe the dipstick with a clean cloth.

WARNING! The oil may be very hot.



Do not use rags that could leave lint on the dipstick. The transmission is topped up via the dipstick tube. The space between the MIN and MAX marks on the dipstick corresponds to 0.5 US qt. (0.5 liter). Do not fill the transmission with too much oil, since this can result in oil being ejected from the transmission. Too little oil, on the other hand, can negatively affect transmission operation, particularly in very cold weather.

A Cold transmission: oil temperature 105° F (40° C). This is a normal temperature for the transmission after idling for about 10 minutes. At oil temperatures below 105° F (40° C), the level may be below the MIN mark.
B Warm transmission: oil temperature 169° F (80° C). This temperature after driving for about 30 minutes. At oil temperatures above 190° F (90° C), the level may be above the MAX mark.

Fluid type: ATF Dexron IIE and Mercon.

Transmission making a noise?


From the manual:
The automatic transmission dipstick has a yellow handle.
Before checking the fluid level:

* The car must be parked on level ground
* The engine must be idling
* The gear selector must be in Neutral or Park
* The parking brake must be set

Transmission fluid goes low when driving for awhile then goes back to normal when parked for awhile


The transmission fluid level is to be checked with the ENGINE RUNNING, ond trans in park or neutral. there is fluid in the torque converter that will raise the fluid level when the engine is off..this is normal. So, I suspect that you may be low on fluid. and the indication after being parked for a while is not valid. Engine MUST be running, and ideally the trans fluid warmed up, but not critical.

1994 volvo has no reverse and maybe neutral


YOU COULD HAVE FAULTY TRANSMISSION NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH BUT CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL MAKE SURE NOT LOW .IF ITS BEEN A LONG TIME. CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER.TRANSMISSION NEED MORE FLUID IN REVERSE BECAUSE NEED HIGHER FLUID PRESSURE TO APPLY REVERSE CLUTCH AND GEARS.

95 volvo 850 burning oil. no leaks. How do i check the turbo seal or the the pcv system


Hi, I have a 1996 Volvo wagon 850 turbo. I just bought it and when you hold the rpm's at 3 and a half it was blowing out smoke after about 600 miles it stoped smelling like burning oil and doesn't blow out any smoke. But I use a court of oil in about every 150 miles. What could this be?
Thank's Jodie

Safety switch in transmission ?


Your Gear Position Sensor is failing. It's common on these models for this part to fail. It's common for the check engine light to also come on and store a code for this sensor.
