    Default Volvo V70 2004 AKTIV

    I have had my V70t for almost 2 months and after much fiddling the tranny
    oil is a clear as what comes out of the bottle . A transmission cooler
    should aid long life to the oil .
    I still can,t get used to the large turning circle after my 1990 740t or the
    lack of omph but it goes well .The ride is ordinary but on the freeway it is
    quiet and smooth .
    The brakes are very efficient but lack the bite of Lucas pads on the 740 as
    they are Bendix .
    I figure changing the oil to synthetic in the engine accounts for the
    cleaning up of the internals .
    Lets hope the toyota T1V oil in the tranny works well as the oil I took out
    was the worst I have ever seen from a transmisson in over 50 years .But no
    sparkles or lumps in the oil.And this after a valve body service .
    Slowly I changed the oil but finally a total complete change till it ran red
    into the container .
    The economy is good very good and much better than the 740t on the freeway .
    LOVE the seating and with an anti glare mat on the dashboard it is perfect
    for out sunny days .
    I swore I would never get black again but I did, and wow the heat is amazing
    ..still figuring out bits and pieces what does what but am enjoying the wagon
    ..
    I am waiting for the heat and fires to subside before taking the car on a
    round trip to the north of Australia and back
    hopefully with out problems .
    I like to hope some of the issues with the transmission others are
    experiencing are due to lack of real hands on maintenance and extra cooling
    ..

    Can you please describe your method for transmission oil changing?
    Never having done that, it occurs to me it would be difficult to ensure
    all the oil gets drained from torque converter, cooler, etc. Is there a
    way to flush all the old oil out?
