  • Hello VOLVO HOW TO,
    Looking for the one preferred kind of engine oil for the long term, for my vehicle: 2008 VOLVO S60-T5 (VIN: YV1RS544982699524, Engine: B5244T5), and I'm a little confused about.
    The label in the engine compartment say's SAE 0W-30 ACEA A3/B3/B4, the local (Israel) dealer use SAE 5W-40, asking why, the only answer I received was "it's confirmed by VOLVO", not satisfied with. I know the dealer use this kind of engine oil for all VOLVO cars, and also other vehicle brands deal with. Majority of engine oil brands recommends SAE 5W-30 ACEA A3/B3 (some A5/B5). Here on the VOLVO HOW TO site, watching Europe table, recommendation is SAE 0W-30 ACEA A5/B5 (Castrol the same).
    The truth, SAE 0W-30 is less common in my place, SAE 5W-30 & SAE 5W-40 are common.
    If environmental conditions has any influence, or driving form, below 0 Celsius: NEVER,
    38/40 Celsius: few days in summer sometimes, if any. Driving: most of time moderate.
    Parenthetically, can it be this engine is a FORD engine (as I know, owned VOLVO those days)? So the engine oil should match FORD specifications ??
    As mentioned above, looking far ahead, Years & Milage, I'm looking for the one specific best kind of engine oil match's my vehicle engine.
    Sorry if bothering, Kind Regards,
    Aharon

    • Hi

      This information was retrieved from official Volvo Technical Specifications.
      Your engine should use a 0w30 . The A5/B5 replaces the previous A3/B3/B4 specification, both can be used.

      Your engine is a genuine Volvo 5-cylinder, not Ford.

      Regards,

  • Hi Volvo howto.
    Need your help.
    A lot of places I can see that my Volvo V70 170hp modelyear 2005 (bought in 2004) is recommended a Castrol oil.

    Castrol (UK) recommends a 0w30(a5) or 5w30(c3) or 0w40 (A3)...for my engine B5244S.
    https://applications.castrol.com/oilselector/en_gb/c/recommendation?vehicleType=cars&manufacturer=volvo-(eu)&model=v70-(2000-2008)&modelType=v70-2-4-(125-kw)-(2000-2005)

    And You recommend for same engine: (oil for EU): a A5 or A3. (and US A1)

    Driving in Denmark.......looking forward to your reply - Thank you
    peter

    • Hi. The oil that Volvo recommends is 0W30 from Castrol. How many miles do the car have and what oil have it used so far? Does it burn oil?
