As the owner or service manual states ... 200 1988

Not so much a question of how often (more is better) as focusing on driving the car long enough on the highway to get the engine good and hot to help minimize sludge and carbon buildup. I’d say 20 minutes minimum. For my cars that aren’t regularly driven on the highway I also incorporate an “Italian tune up” during the run. Wait till the engine is good and warm then drop a gear if necessary and keep the revs up to 3500 rpm+ for 5 minutes or so. Great for burning off carbon and sludge!!

Will I buy another Volvo??? We'll see....
