Owner maintenance  - Maintaining your vehicle - Maintenance and servicing - Volvo XC90 Owners Manual - Volvo XC90

Periodic maintenance requirements and intervals are described in your vehicle's Warranty and Service Records Information booklet.

The following points can be carried out between the normally scheduled maintenance services.

Each time the vehicle is refueled
Х Check the engine oil level
Х Clean the windshield, windshield wipers, headlights, and tail lights

Monthly
Х Check cold tire pressure in all tires. Inspect the tires for wear.
Х Check that engine coolant and other fluid levels are between the indicated "min" and "max" markings.
Х Clean interior glass surfaces with a glass cleaner and soft paper towels.
Х Wipe driver information displays with a soft cloth.
Х Visually inspect battery terminals for corrosion.

Corrosion may indicate a loose terminal connector, or a battery near the end of its useful service life. Consult a trained and qualified Volvo service technician for additional information.

As needed
Х Wash the vehicle, including the undercarriage, to reduce wear that can be caused by a buildup of dirt, and corrosion that can be caused by salt residues.
Х Clean leaves and twigs from air intake vents at the base of the windshield, and from other places where they may collect.
Х Complete service information for qualified technicians is available online for purchase or subscription at www.volvotechinfo.com.
