How Often to Change 2002 Volvo S60 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2002 Volvo S60? Look no further than 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, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2002 S60’s oil should be changed according to Volvo’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your S60 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volvo recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volvo S60. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2002 Volvo S60

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volvo S60? 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 S60 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volvo S60 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 S60 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
