Hello, I've been a lurker, but decided to post today.
I have a 2001 S80, 121,000 miles. I had an independent shop rebuild the transmission at 115,000 miles, and the transmission is still under a parts and labor warranty. Unfortunately, that shop is 83 miles away.
This morning the Transmission Service Required light came on, and I found the fluid was low when the car was running and the transmission was in Park.
I'm going to go to the shop tomorrow morning, but I need to find some fluid today for the 83 mile drive. It is impossible to find the exact Volvo 1161540-8 gearbox oil at the local auto parts store, but this thread
suggests that Castrol Import Multi-Vehicle ATF will work.
Does anyone think it wouldn't? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
