“Why Does My Volvo Need Regular Oil Changes, Anyway?”

You know that it is recommended that your Volvo car or SUV have an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. But have you ever wondered exactly why oil changes are so important?

In fact, oil changes are one of the least expensive regular maintenance that your vehicle requires. And they are important because they keep all the components of an engine working well together. In addition, fresh, clean oil helps to pull away some of the heat that an engine creates.

If you think of your engine as a marathon runner, this makes sense. The engine needs oil to keep things lubricated and to prevent overheating, just like a runner needs that regular intake of fluids throughout his or her race to keep hydrated.

Sure, oil changes cost a bit and require a little of your time to take care of. A bit of prevention though, is much less expensive than costly repairs that could come from not having this routine maintenance performed.

Here at Smolich Volvo, our automotive technicians will take care of your vehicle efficiently, getting you back into your life as soon as possible. So, next time you’re looking for an oil change in the Bend, OR, area, stop in. We’ll be glad to assist you.
