What is Transmission Fluid and How Often Should It Be Exchanged?

Transmission fluid serves as both hydraulic fluid and oil, which helps lubricate the transmission’s various metal parts and bearings, prevents grinding and overheating, and facilitates shifting gears. Over time the transmission fluid can degrade and become contaminated with debris, eventually coating the transmission’s parts in sludge. This, and loss of cooling performance, can lead to transmission failure. Our certified technicians at The Volvo Store recommend having your transmission fluid exchanged every 30,000 to 85,000 miles, depending on your vehicle model and driving habits. These variables can include the following:

  • Type of transmission within your Volvo
  • Environment/climate
  • Weight of loads and towing
  • Types of terrain on which you drive

How is the Transmission Fluid Exchanged?

Unfortunately, new transmission fluid cannot be added to the old fluid, so it isn’t as simple as “topping it off”. Adding new fluid to the contaminated fluid can cause deposits to clog filters and restrict flow within the transmission. To fully remove the old fluid, our certified technicians will first pour transmission cleaner into your Volvo’s transmission. The car will be started and allowed to run briefly, to allow for circulation of the cleaner through your transmission. The old transmission fluid will then be extracted, while simultaneously filling the reservoir with new fluid. We will then check the transmission fluid level to ensure it is at the optimal level for your vehicle’s performance.

Signs That Indicate Transmission Fluid May Need to Be Exchanged

If your Volvo is experiencing any of the following “symptoms”, it may need a transmission fluid exchange:

  • Transmission won’t engage
  • Won’t stay in gear while driving
  • Decreased performance and delays when shifting
  • The engine revs higher than normal, without shifting
  • Leaking transmission fluid
  • Burning odor
  • Dashboard light(s) illuminate for the engine and/or high transmission temperature
  • Low transmission fluid level
  • Roaring, whining, or buzzing sound
