What Should I Know About Transmission Maintenance Service for a Volvo?

One of the most important maintenance steps that you can take to care for your Volvo’s transmission is to flush or change the transmission fluid. As your transmission runs, the various components can produce incredible heat and friction. These are damaging forces, and the heat and friction is abated by healthy, clean transmission fluid. However, dirt and other debris can build up in this fluid. When the fluid is dark and thick with debris, it cannot perform its essential job as well as it otherwise could. A general guideline for many vehicles is to replace or flush the transmission fluid between two to three years regularly or between 30,000 to 45,000 miles. Pay attention to the guidelines in your owner’s manual for specific recommendations for your Volvo model. You can also bring the vehicle to our service department. By analyzing the fluid’s condition, we can recommend any services needed.

What Is the Difference Between Flushing My Volvo’s Transmission Fluid and Changing It?

Many drivers believe that flushing and changing transmission fluid refer to the same service. While these services are similar, there is an important difference between them. When transmission fluid is changed, it is drained from the pan. New fluid is added to the pan, and the filter is replaced. Keep in mind that dirty transmission fluid remains in the cooler lines and torque converter through a fluid change service. In comparison, a transmission flush service removes all dirty fluid from all system components. New fluid replaces the dirty fluid throughout the transmission system. The filter is also replaced. Depending on the condition of your fluid and how long it has been since the last service, you may find that one is more beneficial and suitable for your Volvo than another. When in doubt, refer to the recommendation of our certified auto technicians.
