Transmission service required popped up on the screen, but there are no probklems with driving it. checked transmission fluid and it is at fine level
JA: When was the last time your transmission fluid was checked? Changed?
Customer: checked yesterday, not sure when changed but its possible it was only a year and a half ago
JA: What is the model/year of your Volvo?
Customer: v70 xc 2001
JA: Are you fixing your V70 XC yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes and nothing i just checked the tranmission fluid becuase of the message that popped up
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no thank you


you will get a service light based on time and distance travelled, as Volvo will have worked out an service interval based the best time to replace the fluid

so you can either get the service light extinguished with a volvo diagnostic tool or temporily turn it off like this

however if the fluid is dark and sticky then its probably a good idea to replace it
