Your Guide to 1991 Volvo 240 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Volvo 240 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 240 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 240 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1991 Volvo 240 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volvo themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 240 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1991 Volvo 240 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volvo 240

Bring your 1991 Volvo 240 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 240. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1991 Volvo 240. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volvo 240 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 240 stranded. Your Volvo 240 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1991 Volvo 240 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1991 240. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1991 Volvo 240? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Volvo 240 suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Volvo 240 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Volvo 240's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Volvo 240 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volvo 240 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volvo 240? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1991 Volvo 240 maintenance.

  • When should I have Volvo 240 alignment checked? You know your Volvo 240 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Volvo 240 to high mileage oil? If your Volvo 240 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Volvo dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Volvo 240, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
