1988 Volvo 240 GL Oil Filter Removal

I have two oil filter grips but cannot get access to the oil filter with either.

Is there a specific way of accessing this, it is on very tight.

I have never had this problem before on any other car.

I would appreciate your help.

Thanks

Graham

There are a varity of oil filter removers on the market and most work by gripping side on to the filter making them useless in confined spaces. There is a modle that comes up from the bottom and clamps around the filter and has a drive in the bottom that allows you to use an extension to get to a more accessable place . It comes in about 3 sizes for different filters.and is available from most auto specialist shops.

How often should I change the oil on my 1990 245 Volvo?


If you want to keep the engine in good condition and minimize wear:

Change the engine oil at least every 3000 - 3500 miles (5000 - 5700 kms) or every 6 months whichever comes around first.

The oil filter should be changed every 6000 miles (10000 kms) or every year whichever comes around first. Essentially on at least every 2nd oil change. ( The filter can be changed at every engine oil change if you wish as to do so ensures that there is very little used oil left in the lubrication system at change over time).

Use only the oil grade /spec as specified by Volvo for the engine fitted to the car.

Can anybody tell me the correct type and weight of oil a 2004 volvo xc 90 uses also # for replacment oil filter


Oil filter is provided by year,make, model of your vehicle at the parts store. ---
Oil and fluids Oil quality
Engine oil must meet the minimum ILSAC specification GF-2, including ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF and SJ/Energy Conserving.
Your Volvo has been certified to standards using ILSAC oil specification GF-2 5W-30. Volvo recommends use of oil with a quality rating equal to or higher than ILSAC GF-2. Equivalent and better oils include ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF, and SJ/Energy conserving. Lower quality oils may not offer the same fuel economy, engine performance, or engine protection.
Volvo Cars recommends Castrol. Depending on your driving habits, premium or synthetic oils may provide superior fuel economy and engine protection. Consult your Volvo retailer for recommendations on premium or synthetic oils. Oil additives must not be used. NOTE: Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance is carried out. This oil is only used at customer request, at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer. Operation in hot climates.
When temperatures exceed 86° F (30° C) in your area, Volvo recommends, for the protection of your engine, that you use a heavier weight oil, such as SAE 10W-30. See the viscosity chart below. pg129a.jpg Oil viscosity (stable ambient temperatures)
Operation in temperate climates
Incorrect viscosity oil can shorten engine life. Under normal use when temperatures do not exceed 86° F (30° C), SAE 5W-30 will provide good fuel economy and engine protection. See the viscosity chart above. Extreme engine operation
Synthetic oils meeting SAE 10W-30 and complying with oil quality requirements are recommended for driving in areas of sustained temperature extremes (hot or cold), when towing a trailer over long distances, and for prolonged driving in mountainous areas. Changing oil and oil filter
Oil and oil filter changes should be made at 7,500 mile (12,000 km) intervals. Volvo does not recommend the use of oil additives.
Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance intervals except at ower request and at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer.

I have a 1988 volvo 240 gl and my main fuel isnt getting power


There is a fuse up by the Battery alone in a white receptacle with red wires. It may not be blown but is corroded. Thoroughly clean it. This feeds the Fuel pump circuit.If tat is good the white fuel pump relay under the glove box may be bad.

I want change the air filter and oil filter. How do I do that and is their any special tool need for each area?? I have a 2007 volkswagen passat/4 door


hey
No there's no specific special tools required, you can buy oil filter removal tools which are usually a chain that is rapped around it to get grip or a claw type thing. Try to loosen it with your hand first and if that doesn't work you could use a fan belt and vice-grip's or buy a removal tool. the air filter is just a matter of flicking if a few clips.
good luck

Check the transmission filter, may be clogged up, do not change the oil, keep the same oil when replacing filter, trust me to avoid transmission repair.

Starting a 1984 240 DL Volvo wagon after sitting in a garage for 5 years. Previously looked after really well and regularly serviced one owner.


Replace engine oil and filter, air filter and fuel filter.
Drain the fuel tank and add fresh fuel.
Remove the spark plugs and put a squirt of oil in each cylinder. Remove coil lead and crank engine until oil pressure comes up.(light goes out),
replace coil lead and start engine.. it will blow smoke for first few minutes. Check trans fluid, brake fluid etc before driving. Theres a good chance the brakes will need an overhaul.

Oil filte removal


If you are disposing of old filter complete and replacing with completely new filter then drive a medium size screwdriver through the side of the body of the filter,till it pokes through the other side then turn the screwdriver to unscrew the filter.Or you can purchase a pair of vice grips with a chain head at any hardware store.
