Synthetic Oil Changes

Are you fond of using synthetic oil in your Volvo XC60 when you get a Volvo oil change? We can happily oblige! Are you curious about what the craze is for synthetic oil? Let us tell you a little bit more about it. As always, we suggest you talk to a service technician or refer back to your owner's manual before making any changes to your precious Volvo XC90 vehicle's oil.

In short, synthetic oil is man-made instead of something that came from the earth. It is made using artificial chemical components, but the base usually does include the traditional oil, just in the distilled variety. Synthetic oil was created all the way back in 1929 and was even used in jets during World War II. Some jet engines today even require synthetic oils. But what's so special about them?

For starters, they are much less likely to acidify, and it is harder for synthetics to lose their lubricating properties over time. Unlike petroleum-based oils, synthetics maintain the same exact consistency no matter what the temperature is, which helps to better regulate the temperature of your internal components and protect your engine in all conditions. Depending on the brand you use and your car's model, synthetic oil can even offer up a longer interval of time between necessary oil changes.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a synthetic oil change take?

The timespan of your specific Volvo oil change will vary. For example, some Volvo vehicles have a larger oil capacity than others, requiring more time to drain the old oil from the vehicle. At Volvo Cars Tampa, though, we base our oil change service on your convenience; swing by today for a Volvo oil change in a flash.

How often should synthetic oil be changed?

Not all Volvo vehicles have the same synthetic oil change interval. However, the typical interval for a modern Volvo vehicle will be around 7,000 miles or less, depending on your driving conditions, driving habits, and other factors. Your Volvo Owner's Manual will contain a detailed oil change interval.

Is it worth getting a synthetic oil change?

Yes, choosing synthetic oil for your Volvo oil change is well worth it. Why? Synthetic oil can extend your oil change interval by resisting chemical breakdown more effectively. It can also maintain stability better in high temperatures, flow better in cold temperatures, and provide enhanced performance and fuel efficiency.
