Understanding your vehicle maintenance needs

Complementary Modification:

Use this article to modify service intervals

The service maintenance interval on all 1998 - 2001 Volvo V70 models both turbo and normally-aspirated is every 7,500 miles. The 7,500 mile kilometer maintenance interval will shorten the service time on normally-aspirated vehicles. The revised Schedule of Services also reflects the improved technical capabilities of late model Volvo automobiles. As part of the process of revising the service interval to reflect the improved technical capabilities, Volvo has also changed the required services at each interval quite extensively.

The service light will come on at 7,500 mile (12,000 km) intervals, after 750 hours of driving or after 12 months, which ever occurs first. To remind the driver that the service interval has been exceeded, the light will stay on for two minutes after engine starts until reset by the servicing retailer.

Remember that your car may have been serviced before and had parts replaced with different size fasteners used in the replacement. The sizes of the nuts and bolts we give may be different from what you have so be prepared with different size sockets and wrenches.

Protect your eyes, hands and body from fluids, dust and debris while working on your vehicle. If you're working with the electrical system, disconnect the battery before beginning. Always catch fluids in appropriate containers and properly dispose of any fluid waste. Recycle parts, packaging and fluids when possible. Never work on your vehicle if you feel the task is beyond your ability.

Our vehicle may vary slightly from yours as models do change and evolve, as they grow older. If something seems different, let us know and share your info to help other users.

The service indicator is illuminated in the instrument cluster (red arrow) every 7500 miles.
Figure 4

The service indicator is illuminated in the instrument cluster (red arrow) every 7500 miles. With each service, you will reset the indicator. Use the tables above to determine what services are due each time the light illuminates. For example, at 7.5 miles look for the items with an X in the column. Next time the light illuminates, you will be servicing items in the 15 column, and so on,

Once you perform the needed service, reset the service indicator.
Figure 5

Once you perform the needed service, reset the service indicator. Start by pressing and holding the trip reset button (red arrow) with the key in the OFF position (green arrow). 

Continue to hold the trip reset button (red arrow) and turn the ignition ON (green arrow).
Figure 6

Continue to hold the trip reset button (red arrow) and turn the ignition ON (green arrow). Hold for ten seconds and release. The service light will flash once to indicate it was reset. If it doesn't reset, cycle the key off and try again.
