2002 Volvo S60: how much tranny fluid

Hi,
How much fluid goes into my automatic tranny, going to do a drain and fill?
Thanks Bob

ooh, ooh, i have the answer. measure what comes out. put that amount back in.
if you think 4 qts will come out, than buy 5 before you do it. you have more than you need

it uses 7.9 quarts. Here’s a link to the owner’s manual. I guess you don’t have it since you asked this question.

Thank you.
I got confused watching a you-tube video, he put in 4qts.
Thanks bob

Four quarts is about right for a drain and fill. If you disconnect the cooler hose and flush the transmission fluid as per the maintenance procedure you will need about 7 quarts.
