When it comes to maintaining your Volvo, few services are as important and impactful as the routine oil change.

There's a lot that goes into keeping your Volvo running strong. Routine maintenance is recommended throughout the lifespan of your vehicle, and oil changes are the cornerstone of your service plan. Staying on top of the recommended oil change intervals for your vehicle helps your engine perform better and last longer.

The primary function of engine oil is to lubricate the numerous moving parts in your engine. By mitigating friction, engine oil prevents parts from overheating and breaking. Unfortunately, however, engine oil doesn't last forever.

After a few months or a few thousand miles, engine oil starts to lose its viscosity due to dirt, sludge, heat, and other factors. The result? Your oil isn't as effective at keeping parts lubricated. Driving with old engine oil runs the risk of damaging components in your engine. In the long run, regular oil changes stand to save you money potentially spent on more robust repairs.

That's exactly why Volvo recommends regularly scheduled oil change appointments for its models. The service keeps fresh, clean, effective oil in your vehicle throughout its lifespan. Most manufacturers recommend changing oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. We recommend checking your owner's manual or chatting with one of our technicians to determine the best mileage interval for your specific model.
