BUT

1 year after changing my oil, the torque converter started slipping.
And the car only has 137000 kms (85000 miles).

I question whether it would have started slipping with old oil containing soluble friction material in it?

I am stealing myself for a horrendous repair bill in the thousands....

Who knows, unfortunate yes, but down to the oil change, I would certainly doubt it particularly after a year.

Let's hope that's not the case, Swiss.

Sorry guys just a re post to the above.

1. Do you guys know the correct oil for a 2010 xc90 6 speed auto?

I have pulled some data from a service portal and I believe I need JWS3309 which is the form of volvo 31256774.

Only reason I ask is that some one mentioned there was a fluid type swap at a certain year? Could any one confirm?

If it is JWS3309 then the link here to the Toyota stuff seems good value considering I would need around 14ltrs.

2. Again looking at Gibbons method to be honest, any one know where I can get a kit from in the uk OR know the size of hose I need for the cooler etc?

Dont forget the later 6 speed Geartronic boxes dont have the dipstick as indicated in the "Gibbons method" instructions.

What size pipe did you purchase?

I am really struggling to find this OD 9/16" pipe on the internet??

Closest I can find is 14mm OD and I think 9/16th is 14.28mm??

Also there was another guide stating you need 5/8 internal pipe for the nipple on the cooler?

Is it a Male or female connection on our coolers?

I've just measured the pipe I used. It's 15mm O/D.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Clear-PVC...VaPXIkYiqvtS0w

It is the O/D that counts, as you just push it into the outlet of the cooler and the outer edges make the seal. You should also get a short (5cm) length of garden hose to use as an adapter on the end of the return hose (that you removed from the cooler) to fit a funnel. Use this to add fluid.
