Set Your Own World Record

The Guinness Book World Record for the highest mileage ever driven in a vehicle belongs to a Volvo P1800. We're talking well over three-million miles and counting. The owner attests that his car was always serviced at a Volvo dealership with strict attention to Volvo oil change frequency requirements stated in his owner's manual. Even if you plan to use your Volvo vehicle near Alamo Heights, it's nice to know that you can easily go a lot further with attention to maintenance.

The Volvo Approved Oil List Keeps Your Vehicle at Its Smoothest

The highest-quality Volvo OEM parts involve the correct Volvo oil type. Our highly-trained technicians can determine it in a heartbeat, but what exactly does "approved oil" mean?

Every vehicle has its nuances; a few test drives near Alamo Heights will make that clear. But under the hood, different engines operate at different temperatures, their internal components move at different speeds, and their construction has slight variances that matter more than you may think.

Every engine oil also has its nuances. The first aspect is viscosity, as engine oil gets thicker or thinner depending on its temperature. The correct Volvo oil type is designed to flow with a specific viscosity at your vehicle's engine operating temperature. This grade varies from vehicle to vehicle, but the second aspect is conventional vs. synthetic Volvo engine oil.

Every new Volvo vehicle rolls off the factory floor filled with synthetic oil, and for most new Volvo vehicles, the recommended oil is Castrol® EDGE® Professional Synthetic Oil.

Volvo vehicles are built with a high-performance engine, and this oil provides the best protection for its precision-crafted components. Synthetic oil goes further for your daily drive in San Antonio, TX. It can extend your oil change interval, flow better in climate extremes, and can even help achieve better MPGs.

When you swing by for an oil change, we'll have the Volvo approved oil list ready and have your car filled with fresh oil in a flash.

Volvo Oil Change FAQs

No matter what service you come in for, we'll always use superior quality Volvo OEM parts, supplies, tools, and procedures. Even if you don't intend to go three-million miles or more, we want you to know that our technicians are all trained to make your enjoyment last. Here's a quick list of FAQs that most of our customers find pretty helpful when coming in for a Volvo oil change:

Does a Volvo car require special oil?

Yes, she does. Every engine is different and requires different lubrication and filtration materials. If you factor in the 90 years that Volvo Cars has been producing vehicles, that's a lot of different requirements. We'll be able to determine what your year, model, and engine type needs and provide the correct supplies for your next Volvo oil change.

How often does a Volvo XC90 need an oil change?

Depending on your year, engine type, driving style, and climate conditions, Volvo Cars recommends a genuine Volvo oil change between 7,500 - 10,000 miles. Keep in mind that as your vehicle ages, she may need a Volvo oil & filter change more frequently. This is especially true if you are towing a lot or driving in extreme conditions.

Does Volvo Cars recommend synthetic oil?

She sure does! But only when synthetic oil is specified. Older models might require a synthetic blend, while even older models will use conventional oil. If you're unsure about what your Volvo vehicle needs, ask one of our helpful advisors prior to your next Volvo oil change.
