Volvo S70 Oil Specifications

by Kyla Chele Cambrooke

Volvo manufactured the luxury S70 from 1998 to 2000. The base model featured a 2.4-liter DOHC engine. The gas-powered engine put out 168 horsepower at 5,900 revolutions per minute and 170 ft.-lbs. of torque at 4,500 rpm. For the engine to operate properly, it needs constant lubrication to fight against brittle mechanisms, deposits and harmful elements that can damage your vehicle. There are various motor oil products you may use in your Volvo S70.

The oil includes high-tech synthetic basestocks, premium basestocks and enhanced additive technology.
