Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Volvo 780 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1988 Volvo 780 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 780. 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.

Could your 1988 Volvo 780 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years.

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 780 stranded. Your Volvo 780 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volvo 780? You know your Volvo 780 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
