Professional Volvo Oil Change Service in West Palm Beach, FL

Why are oil changes important?

Motor oil keeps everything in your engine lubricated. Low or deteriorated oil results in too much friction, which can lead to expensive engine damage. Keeping up-to-date with your regular oil changes can prevent future repairs.

How often do I need to have the oil in my Volvo changed?

Most cars need to have their oil changed every 3,000 to 10,000 miles, though this varies depending on the vehicle and use. Look out for these signs of low or deteriorated oil between changes:

  • The check engine light is illuminated
  • The engine is running unusually loud
  • Oil is silty or dark
  • Oil levels are lower than suggested by the manufacturer

How do I check the oil in my Volvo?

Checking your own oil is quick and easy. Follow these simple steps:

  • The engine must have been off for at least 10 minutes before you check your oil
  • Lift the hood and remove the oil dipstick
  • Wipe the oil from the dipstick with a lint-free cloth
  • Replace the cleaned dipstick
  • Remove the dipstick again and check the oil on the end

If the oil is dark, silty, brown, is below the minimal level, or has floating particles, bring your car to Schumacher Volvo for service.
