How Often to Change 2007 Volvo S40 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2007 Volvo S40? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Volvo recommends having your 2007 Volvo S40’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your S40 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volvo S40. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Volvo S40 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2007 Volvo S40 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Volvo has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2007 S40. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your S40’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your S40 by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2007 Volvo S40 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Volvo S40 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Volvo S40 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volvo S40 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volvo S40 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
