1990 Volvo 240 Drivetrain Service

Your 240 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Volvo, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 240 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1990 Volvo 240 to maintain its performance power. Follow Volvo's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
