Questions About 1986 Volvo 244 Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Volvo 244 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Volvo 244? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Volvo 244. 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 244 engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
