One common misconception is that if the motor oil has turned black, it must be changed immediately. Contemporary motor oils are designed to keep engines clean so the black color means the oil has accomplished this. The oil protects and lubricates the engine picking up dirt and grit deposits so they don't interfere with proper engine function.

Still unsure? Let the service center at Volvo of Melbourne help you. We can review proper motor oil maintenance with you as well as change it for you quickly and easily.
