How Often Do You Need to Change the Oil in a Volvo?

By: Motorparks
SWINDON, U.K. - May 24, 2021 - PRLog -- Looking after your Volvo car's engine is essential. A routine oil change can help maintain its health and ensure that things run smoothly for longer. But often should you get an oil change? And what will happen to your car if you don't keep on top of this simple but important maintenance? Motorparks explores your most commonly asked questions when it comes to changing the oil in your Volvo.

When should I change my oil?

Most new Volvo cars should have an oil change every six months or after you've travelled between 5,000 and 7,500 miles – whichever comes first. A regular oil change helps keep your car running and can make your Volvo more efficient, preventing potential issues in the future.

Depending on your driving habits, you may need to change your oil more regularly. This includes if you're heavy on the accelerate or travel for long distances at a time. You should always check your individual Volvo owner's manual for more detail on your specific Volvo car's needs.

If you've heard of the 3,000-mile oil change rule, forget it! Volvo cars, their engines, and the oil we use have improved a lot over the years. These improvements mean that when you drive a Volvo car, you won't have to change your oil as much as you may have used to.

Why do I need an oil change?

It's simple really: it helps keep your engine healthy and your Volvo car running. An oil change has lots of benefits for your vehicle, including:
  • Lubrication of moving parts to help to cool the engine
  • Reduction of friction to prevent wear and tear
  • The removal of contaminant such as dirt
  • Keeping the engine clean
