Your C70 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Volvo if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volvo C70. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2012 Volvo C70 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Volvo C70 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your C70’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volvo C70 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volvo C70 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
