Your Guide to 1989 Volvo 740 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Volvo 740 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 740. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 740 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1989 Volvo 740 maintenance schedule!

Volvo knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 740 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1989 Volvo 740 problems.

Overview of Essential Volvo 740 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Volvo 740 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 740's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Volvo 740. In general, car batteries only last 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volvo 740 battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 740 stranded. Your Volvo 740 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Volvo 740 engine. See Volvo's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 740 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Volvo 740.

Maintaining your Volvo 740 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Volvo 740 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Volvo 740's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Volvo 740 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Volvo 740 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Volvo 740 radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1989 Volvo 740 maintenance.
