Volvo Transmission fluid helps cool and lubricate your volvo’s transmission’s internal parts. The volvo transmission transfers power from the engine to the wheels of the car. An automatic volvo transmission shifts the car into different gears depending on the speed that you are driving. In an automatic transmission car, the volvo transmission system has an oil pan that contains the transmission fluid and fluid filter. The fluid provides the power/force required to shift into different gears. In manual transmission cars, there is a case that contains the transmission fluid.

Contrary to an automatic transmission, the fluid in a volvo manual system is not directly involved in changing gears, because it is a mechanical system, whereas an automatic transmission is hydraulic. If an automatic volvo transmission does not have enough fluid, or the fluid has been contaminated, it is possible for the transmission to start to slip and eventually fail. If a manual transmission does not have enough fluid, or the fluid has been contaminated, it is possible for the volvo transmission to become noisy, the internal parts to wear out faster and eventually for the transmission to fail.
