How do I know if my vehicle requires an oil change?
Most modern cars are fitted with a ‘check oil’ light (or something similar) – this lets you know that the oil in you car needs some attention. On seeing this light lit, you should check the oil level in your car and top it up if you find it to be low – top ups can be required regularly.
You should also check if an oil change is due – this is after roughly every 10,000 miles of driving.
If your Volvo does require an oil change, there may be some additional signs.
You car may make a strange noise or shuddering motion when it first starts – this could be due to lack of oil lubrication throughout the engine.
Additionally, when checking the oil, you may notice it to be dark in colour and grainy. This can signal that your car needs an oil change, new oil is smooth in texture and a light brown colour.
If you are aware of any of these things in your car, you should have it looked at in a garage as soon as possible.
