I would try a few bottles of the Lucas stop leak and fill with the Maxlife PSF. Save the $700 for your next truck.

1 gallon is a lot to pump with reduced flow. the foam is there but dies quickly which is why I let it click off and then pump with reduced flow if I want to get as much as possible in.

not sure, but hths and KV are related anyway. chances are the oil on the cilinder walls and on the pistons will be closer to 150C than to 100C anyway. Same story around the valve stems or in the turbo bearings. So in hindsight, yes.

Jump to new posts Re: Volvo transmission drain/ fill question by dlundblad @ 47 minutes 44 seconds ago

So basically drain and fill the transmission and do a cooler line flush until the fluid appears clean and all is good? When the fluid level is checked, does it have to be in neutral or will the pump move the fluid in park too?
