Thanks for your detailed response.
I drain & filled my ATF last week and the car has been driving great.
In comparing old fluid with new, it was extremely dark. I think it was definitely overdue.
I will be performing these drain & fills every 30k as suggested.

Very good, but you still need to drop the pan, clean the pan & replace the filter.
Drive ability will improve even more.

I'm not entirely sure if my car has a transmission filter as I have been unable to find any information related to it.

Can someone tell me where the ATF filter is?
I have 1999/2000 V70 estate right-hand drive tried to order filter but shops in UK don't seem to stock them is it a dealer trip?

Only the 2.9/T6 equipped with the Hydramatic 4T65 E has a filter. Your 5 cylinder Aisin transmission has a screen in place of a filter. June
