XC70 Transmission flush - Revisiting
I have watched quite a few YouTubes on how to flush the ATF.
1: The most common method suggests draining the pan and refilling with same quantity, then draining the remainder by attaching a temporary hose to the fitting at the cooler and cycling through 2 quarts at a time.
2: A local Volvo mechanic suggested forgoing the pan drain and just attach a tube to the fitting at the cooler and cycling through drain/replace until fluid is clean and clear.
BTW, while I was at Pick and Payless, I removed the hose that goes in/out of the cooler and am thinking I could easily remove the hose on my car, attach this "spare" hose (with some clear tubing) to do #2. This would alleviate the need to get under the car, remove the skid pan, and drain the sump.
What do you think?
Also, is there anywhere in Sydney where I could buy 12 quarts of the correct ATF (3309) or should I be ordering from Amazon?
