1990 Volvo 240 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Volvo's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volvo? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 240’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my 240 transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1990 240’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Volvo, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
