Conventional Oil Change

Conventional Oil Properties

When discussing modern engine oils, there are many options; however, the discussion begins with the tried-and-true conventional oil. Conventional motor oil is also called regular, standard, or basic because it has been around for the longest in serving the automotive industry; it continues to be recommended for many newer-model engines with lower miles and continues to lubricate many Volvo engines quite well. Conventional oil requires routine changes to keep it lubricating the engine at its best because it eventually breaks down and loses its lubricative properties.

Oil Change Schedule

Volvo provides an oil change schedule for each model with engines designed to operate with conventional oil. Depending upon the model and year, Volvo generally recommends changing conventional oil between 5,000 and 7,500 miles. Owners with the oil change monitoring system can merely do what it says; however, not every older-model Volvo is equipped with this technology. The best way to know the maintenance schedule for your Volvo is by referencing the owner's booklet or by giving us a call to speak with a knowledgeable service advisor.

Extended Oil Change Intervals

Driving beyond the recommended oil change schedule is a bad idea due to the known risks and proven consequences. When a driver chooses to drive past the oil change interval, they accept these risks:

  • Increased average operational temperature
  • Increased wear & tear on the engine's internal moving parts
  • Engine overheating
  • Engine damages

Schedule Service at Bergeron Volvo Cars

With routine oil changes being one of the best ways to protect the engine and extend its life, we never recommend ignoring the oil change monitoring system or extending the recommended oil change schedule. When your Volvo reminds you it is time for an oil change, contact Bergeron Volvo Cars to book an appointment.
