1990 Volvo 240 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Volvo 240 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1990 Volvo 240’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 240. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Volvo, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 240’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Volvo 240

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Volvo 240 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 240. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 240. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 240 can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

1990 Volvo 240 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Volvo 240 spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Volvo’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 240? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Volvo 240. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Volvo 240 engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
