Tools needed to change the oil in your Volvo:

Jack and pair of jack stands (unless you have availabilty to a lift)
Oil Drain Pan
17MM Wrench (size varies depending on model but most 1990-98 are 17MM)
Oil Filter Wrench
Protective gloves should be worn

Warning!PROLONGED CONTACT WITH ENGINE OIL CAN CAUSE A NUMBER OF SKIN DISORDERS, INCLUDING CANCER! MAKE SURE TO ALWAYS WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES AND EYE GEAR TO AVOID CONTACT WITH SKIN OR EYES. WASH YOUR HANDS OR ANY OTHER PARTS THAT WERE EXPOSED TO THE OIL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
STEP 1 Run the engine for a few minutes. This will allow the oil to become thinner and flow easier making the job quicker and getting most of the old oil out of the engine.
STEP 2 Unless you have access to a lift, Jack up the vehical and place the jack stands in a secure place.
Most owner manuals will tell you the jacking points on your specific car.
ALWAYS SHAKE THE CAR TO MAKE SURE ITS SETTING FIRMLY ON THE JACK STANDS! IF ITS GOING TO FALL BETTER IT FALL WHILE NO ONE IS UNDER THE CAR!
STEP 3 Position the oil drain pan under the oil drain plug which is located in the oil pan.
STEP 4 Most Volvos use a 17MM sized wrench to remove the drain plug. Remove the plug with the appropriate sized wrench and let the oil drain completely.
STEP 5 Now while you have the drain plug out, check the drain plug seal that goes onto the plug for any damage, splits, cracks, or just not usable and change it if needed to be done so before reinstalling the plug. Failure to do so could cause the pan to leak.
STEP 6 Reinstall and tighten the drain plug. Do NOT overtighten the plug, if overtightend the bolt will be very difficult to remove after the engine has been heated up and may lead to rounding the bolt off the next oil change. Also, be sure you have the sealing ring on the plug before tightening down.
STEP 7 Reposition the oil drain pan under the oil filter.
STEP 8 Wipe away any loose debris near or on the oil filter using a shop rag.
STEP 9 THIS IS THE MOST MESSY PART OF THIS JOB AND WHERE YOU NEED YOUR GLOVES THE MOST BECAUSE THE OIL MOST OF THE TIME WILL RUN DOWN YOUR ARM.
Using an oil filter wrench (fitted or strap style will work), remove the oil filter, make sure that the old sealing ring from the old filter came off with the filter, if it is still on the block remove it or it will cause the new filter to leak.
Oil filters can be located in different locations on different cars so it may be on the bottom the block or on the side.
STEP 10 Lubricate the sealing ring on the new oil filter using oil, screw the filter back on by hand. Most filters should only be put on by hand and tightend 3 rounds after rubber seal has made contact with the blocks surface or until hand tight. Only use a oil filter wrench if necessary.
STEP 11 Remove the jack stands and lower the car back to the ground.
STEP 12 Remove the oil filler cap and fill the engine with the appropiate amount of engine oil and put the filler cap back on.
STEP 13 Start the engine and check for any signs of leaks around the drain plug and oil filter.
STEP 14 Shut the engine off and wait a few minutes to check the oil level so it can settle back into the oil pan. Check the oil and add oil if necessary.
STEP 15 If you have a service indicator light, reset it. If you don't know how for your specific car, then just call any Volvo dealership and speak with a mechanic and they should tell you how you would have to reset it.
