Ready to Change Oil your Volvo S80 oil?

How to change Volvo S80 oil

  • Drive for a while to get the oil more than just warm.
  • Drive the car up on to your ramps.
  • You may have a plastic cover over the bottom of your engine (some do, some don’t). Remove the plastic cover if you have one.
  • Position the oil catch pan beneath the drain plug.
  • Remove the oil filler cap on top of the engine.
  • Loosen the drain plug on the bottom of the engine to drain most of the oil into your catch pan.
  • Re-insert the oil pan plug carefully, making sure the threads are aligned properly.
  • Tighten oil pan plug gently just enough to compress the washer.
  • Move your catch pan over to under the oil filter housing.
  • Loosen the cover with your oil filter wrench.
  • About a quart of oil will drain out there.
