The '01 C70 does have a tiny A/T dipstick, located under the large wiring bundle near the battery, under the radiator hose. It is very short, small and burried. Look very very carefully. I missed it until taking out the radiator hoses.

It's the same as most cars. If there's no transmission dipstick, you can go buy one. There are online tutorials that will let you know where the transmission fluid is located on your car. In addition, they'll let you know what the level should be at. I'd recommend searching a popular video site for tutorials.

SOURCE: Add transmission fluid

Hello dawn_hadley4,

Thank you for choosing fixya.com. Chances are, you have purchased a new model of which there is no dipstick for checking the tranny fluid. I know that an earlier model of the Isuzu Trooper had the same thing and drove me crazy looking for the silly dipstick only to find out there isn't one. The situation is this. Supposedly, one does not need to change the fluid for several (over 3,000) miles before having the fluid changed. However, though it may appear that there is no way to change the fluid, there is infact a place to do so, however - it's tricky - you see, if you look at the top of your transmission (front wheel drive/AWdrive), there are about 3-4 plugs. Only one of these few plugs is the one for adding fluid, with one exception - the dealership (or experienced mechanic) needs to do it. The other plugs, as I am told are used for hold parts of the transmission in place on the inside, and if taken out, severe and excruciating damage can be done. So, I would suggest contacting the Volvo dealer or service center and finding out more about this. I am no certified mechanic, and can tell you I have never worked on a Volvo, there I recommend taking it to someone who has and can serve a much better purpose them I , or accomplishing this task for you.
I do thank you however, agian, and sincerely, for choosing fixya.com for answers to this questions. It is a frustraing one I know, and my sincere apologize for my inability to help you better.
Good luck, and I hope you'll rate this information and deem it no less than helpful. Thank you, and take care.

Some cars don't have a transmission oil dipstick. You are just supposed to replace the transmission fluid at how many miles the manual tells you.Check the manual to see when the transmission fluid needs to be replaced.

Pour it right down the dip stick tube with a long funnel, auto parts stores carry the funnels for this.

Dear Sir, I have a 2001 C-70 convertable and it shifts hard. I want to check the transmission fluid and possible add some if needed but I don't know what type of fluid to put in or where to put it.I don't...


Access to the transmission dip stick is not easy. It is hidden deep under tube and wiring beneath the air intake tube near the battery, it has a yellow top labelled 'Trans' and has a clip that secures the top in place. Check the fluid level when the engine is running and the transmission is in 'park'. If low find some suitable hose to locate it into the dip stick tube and then fit a funnel in the end of this 'extension'. The fluid specified is AW5, Volvo part number 1161540-8, do not use anything else as some fluids do not mix well. Add fluid about a pint a time and check the level each time.
