SOURCE: Volvo S60 sensor ?

Sounds like an oxygen sensor (there are two). I had a recent problem where I had a rough idle and my S60 continued to stall out. Turned out to be the rear oxygen sensor. After replacement, car idles nicely and car drives normally.

SOURCE: oil in radiator, car did not overheat

The oil cooler tank on the side of the radiator has cracked and allowed oil into the cooling system. Replace the radiator and you will need to flush the cooling system A LOT. and be careful driving it for a while, the mixture can take a long time to clear out of the head which can cause it to overheat.

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.

My 2004 V70 is using oil at about 1 liter/ 1000


NO WAY! this is way to excessive. try going to the next thicker oil. man that is just way to much. by the time you needed an oil change, youd be half empty. always use the volvo filters though.

Milage between each oil change


Volvo recommends 5000 miles between oil changes. You can do it more often than that but I advise you to keep 5000 miles as the outer-limit for your oil change interval
