Keeping up to date on your Volvo oil change schedule is key to ensuring that your Volvo S60 or XC90 is always running smooth and safe on Billings area roads. So, when do you need a Volvo oil change? The rule is generally every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. It is always best to consult your owner's manual to find the recommended oil change schedule for your specific Volvo model. Learn more about Volvo oil changes in this guide from Underriner Volvo.

Volvo Oil Change Intervals

It used to be recommended that you have your car's oil changed every 3,000 miles, but with advancements in engine and oil technology, the interval has been extended to between 7,500-10,000 miles. Following the oil change schedule in your owner's manual is the best way to take care of your Volvo. You should be aware that there are other factors that can affect how often your oil will need to be changed:

  • Off-road driving
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

If any of these apply to you, check in with our Service Center. We'll be happy to arrange an oil change schedule that fits with your driving style.

Volvo Oil Change Tips

  • Even if you don't drive your car much, you should still plan on getting an oil change at least twice a year. Oil breaks down over time even if your car isn't being used.
  • Whenever you get your oil changed, your oil filter should be replaced as well. If you plan on changing your Volvo XC90 oil yourself, stop by our parts department to pick up the correct oil filter.
  • Check your owner's manual to find out whether your Volvo requires synthetic oil or conventional oil. Synthetic oil is recommended for many newer models.
