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 changing your 2013 C30’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your C30 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volvo C30. 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 2013 Volvo C30

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volvo C30? 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 C30 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volvo C30 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Volvo C30 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
