Volvo recommends having your 1985 Volvo 244’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Volvo-recommended oil change intervals, your 244 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volvo recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volvo 244. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1985 Volvo 244 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Volvo 244 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 244’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volvo oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volvo exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
