When to Change 1992 Volvo 940 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1992 Volvo 940? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Volvo recommends having your 1992 Volvo 940’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 940 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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 at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volvo 940. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1992 Volvo 940

  • What can low oil do to my Volvo 940 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Volvo 940 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volvo oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Volvo 940 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
