Fix this first, then if you have the transmission heat hot at start up. If you are having problems with the transmission in your F-250 Super Duty, such as clunky shifting or hesitation, check the fluid level first - it is amazing how many drivers pay thousands of dollars for transmission work when a half quart of transmission fluid would have fixed the problem. Check the body ground also.
Over the years, Volvo has used many different transmissions in the 240 and 260 models. If you tow a lot than consider adding an after market transmission cooler. The gasket on there is reusable, and you already have a drain plug in there so go for it. So im re reading the post and am still a little confused but i think im getting it. It's really up to the owner. It will depend on the year and the transmission model.
