ATF Change for S40
Posted 14 January 2005 - 04:44 PM
brand in the market are ok. I did used AC Delco type III before but I will
go back to type II on my coming service. Just bought a 4 lit pack 'Fuchs'
ATF 3000 type II made by the German oil company which certify for Volvo
car usage at RM45 only.
Volvo original ATF is too expensive. As long as you are using min type II
is OK. THe service interval of ATF change should be within 20,000km. Moure
frequent ATF is better for your car anyway !!
As I explain and explain agian, heat is the main cause of ATF failure
therefore, our tranny seals will be damage. Do consider to add an ATF oil
cooler for cooling the AFT. It will eventually prolong your autogear life
span and lessen your radiator heat load.

At present I use Type III, seems that gear shifting smoother than before.

I am told a big factor of the smoothness is due to the ATF oil used which
was Redline. If it is so, I would highly recommend it.

It is always good to use the original if the existing transmission has
adopted to these fluid.
