1981 Volvo DL, GL and GLT
Fluid type: DOT 4
Replace: every third year or 45,000 miles (75,000 km).
Check, without removing the cap, that the level is above the "MIN" mark of the fluid reservoirs.
Always entrust brake fluid changing to a Volvo dealer.
Change brake fluid every year when driving under extremely hard conditions (mountain driving etc.)
and if the car is equipped with an air dam!
pg. 63 Lubrication
To simplify maintenance, your Volvo has been equipped with ball joints, steering rods and propeller
shafts that do not require regular lubrication.
Points that normally require lubricating have been packed with very durable grease at the factory and
then carefully sealed, eliminating the need for subsequent lubrication.
