Re: Gibbons method for trans fluid 2012 XC70

You know your stuff Jimmy ..I have VIDA and I could not really understand the process it outlines until I found a video on a guy who followed this process. Is this the "slipping lock up" procedure you are referring to? For your reference here is the video: https://youtu.be/EAb9p8Wph-M You really are...

Re: Gibbons method for trans fluid 2012 XC70

No nothing foreign....just the education that you want to make sure and exchange all the fluid to make sure all of it is new fresh fluid. The car has 82000 miles on it at this point. How could I achieve getting all the fluid replaced? Drain and refill twice?

Re: Gibbons method for trans fluid 2012 XC70

Ok Jimmy ...thank you once again. So no Gibbons method on this car ....with the method you describe there is confidence that all of the trans fluid will be exchanged and changed?

Gibbons method for trans fluid 2012 XC70

Has anyone else here used the gibbons method for replacing trans fluid on a 2012xc Volvo? I have done it on my 1998 v70 and want to know if there are any new issues for the later Volvo's using this method. Thanks, RH

Re: The secret to an xc70 radiator drain valve

One last note on this topic, I bought and used the OEM Cooling Refiller kit that I provided the link on Amazon with. It worked very well. In fact I discovered a cooling system leak on my upper radiator hose with it. Take note on that ....on my 2012 XC70, I bought a replacement hose before removing t...

Re: The secret to an xc70 radiator drain valve

Jimmy ...one other question regarding that kit, since it has lots of adapters ...couldn't you just connect to the expansion tank to accomplish the task?

Re: The secret to an xc70 radiator drain valve

Thanks Jimmy ...yeah what a pain but I know you know what you are doing. I tried to find one of these kits at the big box stores for rent or loan ...but they do not have them. It seems nobody takes your advice and uses them. I really appreciate your help on this. Richard

Re: The secret to an xc70 radiator drain valve

In response to Jimmy57's response ....will a Cooling System Refiller Kit like the one on the link below answer this need? Anyone else dealing with this problem/need as well?
