Lightbulb Changing transmission fluid by filler tube.

Hello everyone,

I have a 2001 v70 2.4t with 72,000 miles. The trans fluid is starting to go darker so, I thought I would suck some ATF out of the filler tube and replace with each oil change time. I hope that I am not the only one who thought of this. Any idea of how much ATF come out the filler tube and if this is a good idea? I assume that I should get up to 3.5 quarts out at a time.

Why not change it all at once? I disconnected the return line at the transmission, added a tube then measured out about two liters add 2. I did this 6 times til ruby red came out. easy peasy
