Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Volvo 760

  • Should I check my Volvo 760 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Volvo 760 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volvo 760 oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Volvo exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
