Your Guide to 1991 Volvo 740 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Volvo 740 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 740 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 740, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1991 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 740's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1991 Volvo 740 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volvo 740

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 Volvo 740 for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 740. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1991 Volvo 740? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 740 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Volvo 740 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 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1991 Volvo 740's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1991 740. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1991 Volvo 740? We can help with that, too!

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut 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.
