Correct. It is using "Full Synthetic" oil, not "Mineral" oil.
2009 C30 Mainteance schedule:
7,500 15,000 22,500 30,000
These should be free of charge from Volvo.

If we're talking about motor oil, I would play it safe and change every 3,000 miles. I've changed oil on cars that had little over 4,000 miles on it and it look nasty. Just play it safe, 3,000.

After the oil and filter change how many miles can you drive before its due again ?


Industry standard has been 3000 miles or 3 months between oil changes. Newer cars have increased that to 5000, 7500 and sometimes 10,000 miles. Best to consult the dealer or specific manufacturers for the exact mileage for your vehicle.

At what mileage does the oil need be changed? Is it at 3000 or every 7500 miles?


This is entirely up to you. Most places say 3 months or 3000 miles, but then again they sell you the stuff and want your money. I know a mechanic and he said every 5000. Ive never heard 7500. Also keep in mind, the more you change the oil the longer your motor should last. It is the "blood" of your motor.

I lost the owner's manual. I saw an tv program that said changing the oil every 3,000 miles may not be necessary and to check the owner's manual. What is the frequency reccomended for the 2009 Jeep...


I think you are right. Contact a dealer and they will give you the precise exact answers you need and maybe even print the sheet with reservice requirements on it for you. They always try to earn new customers in service

You can leave it,it is a gadget,not tied to any system

You should have an owners manual (still) on a 2009

What is the wrench symbol light on a crown vic 2006?


This is to remind you of the oil change, and also they have it programed to come on every 7500 miles for service, this is so they can sell you something but basicly for oil changes, to reset the light and when you have an oil change you should ask them to reset it even if its not on, depending on how often you do an oil change you may just need to reset every second oil change, for example an oil change should be done every 3,000 mile this way the light comes on and you can wait until the oil is due the second time, hope this helps. to reset turn key on all the way but dont start engine make sure all doors are closed then push and hold the trip button until you hear 3 beeps system is now reset.

How often should i change my oil in a suzuki sx4 2008 crossover? and will an oil light come on when it needs changed?


every 3000 miles or 3 months. You should change it before the light comes on. Unless you are using synthetic oil.

How do you reset change oil light on mitsubishi outlander


Turn the key off.

Press the "Info" button on the left of the dash cluster until your maintenance miles/months screen is displayed.

Press and hold the "info" button until the maintenance screen begins flashing.

Release the "info" button and then push and hold it it for one second.

Your Maintenance intervals should reset to +6 months and +7500 miles since the last interval amount.

Note that if you have not reset it for more than one interval, you may need to do it more than once. If you have not done it for many intervals, you may need to have it reset with the scantool at a dealer, as I have run into a handful of vehicles that the oil change reminder locked up after 3-4 "intervals" were skipped/not reset.
