Why Get an Oil Change?

An engine contains many rapidly moving parts the rub against each other thousands of times every minute. Without adequate lubrication, heat from friction will build up very quickly. An engine with no oil will fail catastrophically in just a few minutes. Oil provides the necessary lubrication to prevent this, but that's not all. Engine oil also serves to absorb heat and keeps the engine at a stable temperature. Additionally, the oil cleans the engine by picking up contaminant matter, like dust, soot, and metal shavings, and transporting them to the oil filter. Winter can be especially taxing on engine oil due to the cold weather and messy driving conditions.

Over time, oil contaminants will build up in the filter and oil, and the engine heat will eventually break down the oil, rendering it less effective. Changing the oil and filter regularly will ensure optimum engine performance and efficiency.

When Should You Have Your Volvo's Oil Changed?

Volvo engines are expertly crafted and impressively efficient in their use of engine oil. The "every 3,000 miles" adage has long been a thing of the past. According to the official Volvo Car USA Support Page, models prior to 2013 should have their oil changed every 7,500 miles or once a year, whichever comes first. If your model is newer than 2013, Volvo recommends having it changed once a year or every 10,000 miles.

These numbers assume fully synthetic oil and standard driving conditions. Heavy use, such as off-road driving, towing, racing, etc., can necessitate more frequent oil changes. In cold, dirty, stop-and-go conditions, newer model-year Volvo's should be changed every 7,500 miles and older model's every 5,000 miles.
