Follow the instructions in the operator’s manual
By following the service recommendations in the operator’s manual, you will help prevent unnecessary wear and repairs, and maximize both performance and service life. The operator’s manual supplied with your engine specifies the required service intervals and the quality of fuel, oils and coolant that should be used for your engine and transmission.
Download the service protocol
The service protocol contains the required maintenance points for your engine in a single document. The service protocol complements the operator's manual and is available for diesel engines manufactured after 2006. For gasoline and older diesel engines, the service protocol is included in the operator’s manual. You can download the service protocol here.
Make sure your engine is registered
Registering your engine helps ensure that the dealer in your area is prepared to support your engine and that correct parts and service are always close at hand. It is also useful to ensure that you receive important information such as quality campaigns and recalls, and enables you to fully benefit from the support that Volvo Penta and your dealer offer. Please contact your local Volvo Penta dealer to make sure your engine is registered.
Keep Your Service Records
A properly and well maintained engine serviced by an authorized Volvo Penta dealer can substantially add to your boat's resale value. The service book supplied with your engine is a convenient way to document all maintenance and service performed. This record, supplemented with relevant receipts, will provide a future owner with evidence of your care of your engine and, should you ever require warranty coverage, you will have all the documentation easily available.
