Refer to the Warranty and Service Records Information booklet for information on the oil change intervals. NOTE: Volvo does not recommend the use of oil additives. Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance intervals except at owner request and at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer. Checking and adding oil The oil level should be checked every time the vehicle is refueled. This is especially important during the period up to the first scheduled maintenance service. The vehicle should be parked on a level surface when the oil is checked. If the engine is warm, wait for at least 10-15 minutes after the engine has been switched off before checking the oil. Checking the oil - Pull out the dipstick and wipe it with a lint-free rag. - Reinsert the dipstick, pull it out, and check the oil level. - Add oil if necessary. If the level is close to the MIN mark, add approximately 1 US quart (1 liter) of oil. - Run the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature. - Switch off the engine and wait for at least 10-15 minutes and recheck the oil level. If necessary, add oil until the level is near the mark. file:///K|/ownersdocs/2007/2007_V70/07v70_09.htm (10 of 38)12/30/2006 5:49:45 PM
