Engine compartment - checking
Some oils and fluids should be checked at regular intervals.
Check the following oils and fluids at regular intervals, e.g. when refuelling:
- Engine oil
- Power steering fluid
- Washer fluid
Remember that the radiator fan (located at the front of the engine compartment, behind the radiator) may start or continue to operate automatically for up to approx. 6 minutes after the engine has been switched off.
Always have the engine cleaned by a workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended. There is a risk of fire if the engine is hot.
