Question about 2005 Volvo XC90
If you have the 2.5t engine, open the hood and look on the driver side (LHD car) right behind the radiator and low, behind a hose. It'll have a yellow handle on it.
It's hard to access and it's worse that you have to check it with the car running, being fully hot, and being parked on flat ground. That means heat and the fan possibly running.
Volvo says "lifetime fluid" but that lifetime is short if you don't change the oil, so dealers these days recommend around 70K miles changes on the oil.
I do it by disconnecting the trans cooling line that goes into the radiator, sticking a hose on it and sticking it into a jug.
Start the car, let the trans pump out 2 quarts, stop the engine.
Pour two quarts in the trans through the dipstick tube, then repeat the process.
It took me about 12-13 quarts to get oil coming out the same color as it was going in.
MAKE SURE to use the proper fluid (I think you need the 3309 fluid, which is FAR cheaper if you get Toyota's Type IV fluid than Volvo's own stuff) and you also want to make sure you don't over or underfill the trans. It's a very small amount between "low" and "full" on the stick.

Couldn't find mine either. It's not in the owners manual. Actually, I found out that it does not have one. According to VW Vortex, they check the fluid at the dealership by computer.

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak
checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

HI, this transmission is a sealed type. you will need to purchase a special tool from the dealership to fill this unit properly.
Contact the nearest Audi dealer for this fill tool.

on the bottom of the transmission pan you will find a nut with a hex or torx in the middle you remove the center plug when the truck is hot and running on a level serface the trans fluod will dribble out if it does not dribble out it is low if it runs out fast a steedy streem it is over full now their is a part that screws into this for a fill if you remove the pan you will see how it works the pan has a pipe/ stack that when full of fluid the top of the pipe is at the full point if you remove the large nut the stack and plug will come out the best way to change the trans fluid is take it to some place that has a fluid exchange equment this will get all the fluid out including the torque converter

Does not have a dip stick.
Start the vehicle set park brake
In the side if the transmission oil pan a bigger bolt with a small bolt in the center.
Remove smaller center bolt trans fluid should drip out at a fairly constant rate if not its low.
Hope this tip helps.
