Volvo Oil Changes in Tacoma

Our Oil Change is Superior

Not only is oil truly the “life blood” of your car, but Volvos have other oil-related needs you may never have heard about, especially if you’ve been going to a “quick” lube/oil change kind of place.

Common Volvo OiL Issues

Issue Explanation
Inexpensive, low-quality Oil Filter installed Cheap oil filters often collapse and compress as oil pumps through them, causing loss of oil pressure, which can cause your engine to seize
Inexpensive, low-quality Oil used Cheap oil loses viscosity faster – thins out, gets dirty faster, doesn’t lubricate the engine properly
Drain Plug Washer not replaced during Oil Change This small but important detail is often overlooked and causes oil to seep out if not replaced each and every time the oil is changed
Positive Crankcase Ventilation System clogs More frequent oil changes can extend the life of your PCV system

“People may think our full-service oil change is more expensive than the quick lube places, but that’s not usually the case”

How Often Should I Change The Oil in my Volvo?

We could discuss and debate this for days, but it boils down to this:

Economical OIL CHANGE $ vs Costly NEW ENGINE $$$$

We recommend an oil change every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first.
