Ok, I've never done an oil change before in my life. So bear with me <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>How would one go about doing it? Is there a drain hole on the bottom of the engine that I open up? Also how would I change the oil filter out?<p>Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated

Re: 850 oil change (xtremepsionic)

You need to get a Haynes auto repair manual and it will show you everything on changeing the oil. You can get one cheap for $11.95 plus shipping at <A HREF="http://www.discountautorepairmanuals.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.discountautorepairmanuals.com</A><BR><BR>

sounds good <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>time to get one for myself, probably save enough $ this way if I can just change my oil and replace the rear shocks (when the time comes)

I bought this book a little while ago, it even has pictures and instructions for the ten valve engine. Best $20 I ever spent! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 850 oil change (xtremepsionic)

Yeah I paid the shipping costs too. I guess it worked out to more than $20 canadian, but still a good buy.There is 12 chapters plus electrical diagrams if you can understand them. It is a pretty complete book although it doesn't have any of the little things like taking apart trim and such. Just the servicing and major parts changes - which is a lot of information. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Can't remember exactly were again, it was an internet impulse buy. I could check my credit card account online if you really want to know, it was $11 and change US + the expensive shipping.

I bought one for $13 bucks including shipping of Ebay. An Oil Change can cost any where form $15 bucks to $40 bucks just depending on where you take it and what kind of oil is used. You can changed you oil for about $10- $12.

Mine holds 6 quarts of oil. synthetic oil is not that expensive at a local walmart still should cost $18-$20 depending on the oil and filter that you buy.

Most volvo people say go with the original Mann oil filters. Bosch makes a good oil filter too
