Default Engine Oil Level Poll

To try and understand if this is a common issue or one that is rather more isolated I wonder if you could answer the poll questions above. That way we will be able to understand the occurence of the issue

Hopefully the mods will make this a "sticky".

Good suggestion - how do we get the Mods to make it a sticky?

Default Rising oil level

My v70 D5 has been to various dealers a number of times during the last 2 years (twice in the last 2 weeks) due to this issue with the rising oil level. My car is generally used on the motorway and I only use V-Power or Ultimate diesel. My visit to volvo last week will hopefuly be the last until the next service, but I now have little faith in either the car or the dealers. All they have done so far is carry out various software upgrades. Could this be a mechanical issue too? This is my 3rd Volvo and the only one I have had issues with. Can anyone offer some advise on the problem?

What do you mean by 'issue', do you mean 'have you actually experienced a problem', or 'have you had the recall' ?

My experience from other forums, they will see this ask and automatically do it......hopefully.

Wait and see what happens, if not PM them.

I suggest that is 'actually suffered' from the Rising Oil level - that is what we want to know.

There are many recalls for many things almost none of which you ever encounter, having had a recall notice is immaterial if you have not suffered from the issue

How would I know if I have oil pressure issues. With a newish car under warranty I wouldnt think there would be such issues but unless told how would one know as I cannot see any oil spewing out anywhere or any smoke puffing.

I do not know anything about oil pressure issues, in fact I have never seen them mentioned anywhere (perhaps you could expand on this?).

The issue is in the title of the thread, Rising Oil Levels which you will notice everytime you check the oil level - assuming that you do.

Even under warranty you need to check the oil level since if it is low or high and damage occurs then the ensuing damage could be attributed to you as the maintainer and then the warranty would be void. You fill up the windscreen washers between services, you check the tyres, the need to check the oil level is in the same league as these items
