If the message Oil service required is shown, visit a workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended. The oil level may be too high.
If notified of low oil level, only fill with the volume specified, for example, 0.5 litres.
The system cannot directly detect changes when the oil is filled or drained. The car must have been driven approx. 30 km (approx. 20 miles) and have been stationary for 5 minutes with the engine switched off and on level ground before the oil level indication is correct.
Do not spill oil onto the hot exhaust manifold due to the risk of fire.
Measuring the oil level
If the oil level needs to be checked then it should be carried out in accordance with the following sequence.
If the right conditions for measuring the oil level (time after engine shutdown, the car's inclination, outside temperature, etc.) are not met, the message Not available will be shown. This does not mean that there is something wrong in the car's systems.
