The engine in your Volvo is designed to run and perform for many years, and to keep your engine performing its best, it's vital to have the oil changed regularly. At McKevitt Volvo Cars in San Leandro, our service department is here to help you with regular oil and filter changes to ensure your engine will last for many years to come.

Why Oil Changes are so Important

Regular oil changes reduce excess dirt and other contaminants that can build up in your engine with daily use. In addition to dirt, sludge accumulation is also a common occurrence in engines, especially if you don't change your oil regularly. Sludge can lower your vehicle's performance and lead to server engine damage if left unchecked.

For our drivers in Oakland who put a lot of miles on their cars, it's essential to have your oil and filter changed according to your manufacture's specifications. Also, you have to keep in mind that the type and brand of oil you use in your Volvo will play a big role in your engine's performance and longevity. We only use the manufacture's recommended type and grade of oil for your oil changes., so your car is always in good hands.

Why it's Important to use Quality oil in your Volvo

Your car's engine produces a lot of heat, and heat destroys oil. Low-cost and substandard oil doesn't last as long as high-quality motor oil and synthetic oil. Without a good quality oil, your engine is more prone to overheating, and the moving parts of your engine won't be sufficiently lubricated for optimum performance. While cheap motor oil can save you money in the short run, you can end up spending more money on repairs or more frequent oil changes in the long run.
