    This is an excellent tutorial. Picked a day with temps in the teens for the final flush. Just a note on the aluminum crush washer; Eeuroparts lists a Volvo part number. Although I almost drove to pick-up the washer (Eeuroparts warehouse is about an hour from my house), I went to a local Volvo dealer and they gave me a washer free of charge. They told me they're about a buck a piece. So if you have a Volvo dealer nearby, check with them.

    Automatic transmission fluid partial change and level check. 2004 9-5 2.3T

    I'm brand new to the forum and never even started a saab but my neighbor asked me to check his 2004 9-5 2.3T automatic trans so the first thing I did without starting it was pull the "dipstick" thinking I'm looking at oil and it fused out the dipstick tube about 1/2 at before I could reinsert the dipstick. This dipstick is on the leftf side between the battery and motor. Then I found the big yellow oil cap dipstick (& what appears to be an oil fill with reservoir on the right side near the fender.

    How much trans fluid should drain from the drain plug beneath the motor? And then I guess I should add that same amount and once warm, the fluid should be between mark on the dipstick while running??

    So here I am and I figured somehow the transmission was way overfilled, bought 5 qts of TLS, and drained the transmission from that big bolt on the bottom near the cat converter. I thought i read that draining from here will remove 4 qts of fluid so I expected more than 4 to come out but only 2 qts drained..

    I need to know why the trans fluid gushed out when I pulled the dipstick.. and i need to know how much to add and then how to measure.. In this thread I think I just read that a cold transmission after draining from the bottom should be filled at dipstick until it just overflows.. this would all make sense if it was recently topped off while cold.. and the pan holds about two quarts which brings the level to the top of the dipstick tube while cold..

    Note, ive done this more than a few times on general motors cars... hell a month ago i changed a general motors th700 transmission in a parking lot

    Welcome! I merged your thread with the main ATF change thread. Please take a look at the previous posts in this thread and they hopefully will answer (some of) your questions.

    Jason, I saw your post looking for an answer as I am having the same issue with my 2009 9-5. Did you find out what caused it? Thank you

    Torque

    Does anybody know if there is a recommended torque setting for the drain plug on the automatic 9.5 (2005) gearbox?

    The WIS shows the tightening torque for the transmission fluid drain plug is 40 Nm / 30 lb ft.

    I added this information to the first post in this thread as well.

    spanner size?

    am I right it is a 24 spanner to undo the drain plug? Can you get at it with a socket wrench? Or only a ring spanner?

    On page 1 Nordwulf states there is not enough room for a socket. It is 24mm.
