June,,, I cant tell anything from that vîdeo ..... and couldnt really hear the car ounds .....

If u happen to come across another video let me know....

I have the 2002 s60 2.4turbo AWD
Sorry for the delay. In the video he shows the speedometer and tachometer. Notice the tachometer when he is driving 30ish mph. The tachometer raises up 500 rpm quickly, but notice he is not accelerating ie the speed is not increasing for the raise of rpm. That is a transmission slipping.

Although the video is a S80, it could be a Honda or any car because a slipping transmission has the same symptom, increasing rpm of the engine but not gaining speed for the rpm increase.

I asked about the transmission first because from what I understand of your posts you had some fluid changed due to a problem. Has the color of the fluid changed since you last looked? Does the fluid smell burnt? June

This is how I add photos with my Samsung Note 8. Apple undoubtedly will look different but hopefully you get the idea. On my phone where I show you "select files" that's assuming you have already taken the photos, if I have not then I select camera and take one. You obviously have the photo already that's why I showed that route. Hope it helps! June

Now that I have my car back from service, here is a photo of ideally what the fluid should look like in a clean properly maintained transmission. I am showing you this to help you in the future when you are looking at used cars. Always check the condition and level of all fluids when inspecting a potential car you might buy.

As far as transmission fluid goes, red, pink, light amber without burnt odor are all acceptable. If it has turned amber nearly clear, it means the fluid is likely 10+ years 100k+ old, but still good and nothing is wrong with the Transmission. This info is for your future reference.

I expect your car likely had dark fluid in the transmission, of which you had a drain and refill done so it should look a bit better than before the drain and refill. Your dipstick should be yellow plastic as your car has a Asian Warner transmission (like a Toyota Camry) and my car has a General Motors Hydromatic transmission (like a Buick Park Avenue). That is why my dipstick is a long metal stick. Dont let that confuse you as essentially they are both automatic transmissions and both have a dipstick to check the fluid. Now hopefully you can add a photo of the current condition of your fluid. June

That fluid looks like it is old and has seen its service life. Were it me I would put in one half a can of SeaFoam Trans Tune and run it 500 or so miles. I think you should be okay just adding it for now, without draining any fluid.

You will need the fluid and a funnel with a long neck. There are write ups on this forum showing the process. Your transmission is the same as the XC70, V70, S60, and S80 with 2.5T - so any of those write ups or videos will be the same.

The transmission dipstick is by the driver side near the radiator. It is hidden by a hose, but if you look down and move the hose you will see the yellow top. With a cold engine you can reach down, and with one finger push the hold tab out and pull up. It is a metal piece with a bend in it that restricts the dipstick from coming out. Just push the tab towards the radiator and pull up - maybe you can get two hands in there.

After this I would bring it back to your shop and have them do another drain and fill, and add the rest of the can of SeaFoam Trans Tune so it is all at the proper level. If you are bold, as you have the funnel - you can do the drain and fill yourself. Another female forum member, with no experience managed to do hers after reading through the write ups and watching some videos.

Your year S60 may have the original version of the valve body that suffers from sticky solenoids. The SeaFoam may clear this up, worth an $8.00 try. If you have a later version with the updated solenoids then just fresh fluid and some miles may solve your transmission issues.

If the engine is having misfire issues, it should throw some codes.
