    Hello folks, what's going on here? The bolt is tight.

    That looks like one of your transmission fluid lines. The other end probably connects to your transmission cooler. I took that line off (10mm bolt?) several times when trying to fix my tranny. If memory serves, there's a small rubber washer that fits on the end of the tube when you insert it into the transmission case. If that washer wears out, you could get leaks.

    Have you or anyone recently removed and re-installed that line? Or maybe something bumped into it somehow? I don't know if after years of having a good tight seal it could start leaking but maybe so.

    Few years back, I got the car with a bad transmission. I got it rebuilt before I can drive it.
    I'll replace the seal since the bolt is tight.
    Thanks.

    Yep. ATF cooler line. Thereís a small o-ring there. O-rings get old, and shrink, crack, or whatever, then leak.

    So, clean the area, pull the line out, replace the o-ring. Itís probably a .25 part, but Volvo will charge you about $4.00 for it. I would pay that just to know I had the right size part.

    Yeah, I should do that from the dealer. Is that line under pressure for when I pull it out. Sure there will be fluid pouring out. When the ring is replaced, just refill the fluid tank, or is there any special procedure to follow?
    Thanks.

    Buy this kit:

    https://www.ipdusa.com/products/4808...lvo-IPD-107945

    Then buy 14 quarts of fluid.

    Follow the directions on IPDís site under that product.

    Repeat every 30,000-60,000 miles.

    Since I need to to the flush this weekend, I cannot order the kit I need; won't be here on time. I got the kit from the Volvo dealer. They only have the clip, green rings and only one yellow ring. I got the clip, two green rings and the only yellow ring they have. What should I do. I should use the old yellow ring from the car. I will order the kit for the other '01 XC70. I will check other parts dealers in town to see if they will have the yellow ring. I wonder why two types of rings?

    Thanks.

    Hello folks, am struggling to find which ring it is. All am finding are for the cooling, at the radiator. Any help on which ring is at the transmission. Please.
    Thanks.

    I believe that it is the same size as the cooler line o-rings.

    Might be worth stopping by Volvo and chatting with the parts folks, or, if you've got a second car, easy enough to take this one out, put a plug in place to stop the fluid loss, and take it down to match it up.
