Volvo Oil Change Service near Los Angeles

Let Rusnak Volvo Cars in Pasadena Answer Some Common Oil Change Questions

Let us start with the obvious. Changing your oil is an important part of automotive care when your vehicle contains a traditional gasoline or hybrid engine. Taking proper care of your Volvo is a responsibility and an honor. It is one in which Rusnak Volvo Cars takes pride in performing. Before your next excursion through Los Angeles, schedule an oil change with our dealership, and let our highly trained Volvo Mechanics care for your automobile.

Semi-Synthetic vs. Full Synthetic-Which is Better?

The short answer to that question is that it depends on the make, model, and year of your vehicle. First, let's explain the difference. Semi-synthetic oils contain a blend of conventional and synthetic oils. Because of this blending, semi-synthetic oil can still break down over time and with use. Full synthetic oil is resilient to temperature fluctuations, reduces friction, provides longer intervals between oil changes while improving engine performance.

We wish to offer one additional note before leaving your home in Duarte to visit our dealership. Semi-synthetic oils are more beneficial to older automotive makes and models. Full synthetic oils are more beneficial to newer automotive makes and models. Of course, this is a generalization. Before determining which oil to use, you should consult your vehicle's Owner's Manual or contact our Volvo Service Center near Los Angeles.

How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

This goes back to the previous question about semi-synthetic vs. full synthetic oils. Because full synthetic oils don't experience the same breakdown rate as semi-synthetic oils, you're able to prolong the length of time between oil changes. However, this is just a generalization and should not be used to determine when you should schedule your oil change.

Factors such as temperature, driving style, driving distance, and more affect when you should change your oil. Review your Owner's Manual or contact the experts at Rusnak Volvo Cars serving residents of West Covina and beyond if you're in doubt. We're here for you.
