No the volvo does not have a servicable filter, The best thing to do is to flush new fluid through the transmission periodically, replacing all of the fluid.

No, no such animal. Trans oil needs a means of ck'ing. lokk for a dipstick more to the rear of the engine close to the firewall.

Hi, I'm going to attempt to do my first transmission oil change on my 1998 grand caravan AWD 3.8 ltr, 160,000 miles. I don't think there is anything wrong with my tranny yet but doing it as a...

You just remove the pan clean it & reinstall

Forget the extra in the torque converter

If you got all of it out on a veh that old it would
probable start slipping

Because of its age just use regular fluid not

ATF + 3 & +4 are the same

The +4 is for newer vehicles & supercedes
the other.

If you have a gasket it goes on dry
No gasket RTV on pan & let sit overnight
NO RTV with synthetic,it will leak

My volvo s70 1998 transmission oil coolant was leaking and fixed. I flash the transmissio oil and changed the oil. After this process the car does not move in all gears either forward nor reverse.

Depending on how long it had been since servicing all of the old fluid might have been what was sealing it up and th neww fluid might be too clean to operate without some major work .

Try a can of Lucas Transmission Slip - 100M - see if that helps. Something is sticking in there. This might free it up.

Where is the battery? Transmission light, and it is slipping

it wouldn't surprise me if the battery is located in the trunk... as for the transmission... lucas makes a "thickener" for the transmission fluid. i have used it and gotten another 30,000 out of my transmission when it was having problems.
