1991 Volvo 940 Maintenance Schedule

When does Volvo recommend steering and suspension service for 1991 Volvo 940s?

Does Your 1991 Volvo 940 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1991 Volvo 940, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your 940 feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1991 Volvo 940, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shocks, coil springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your 940 suspension system needs repair, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your 940 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volvo 940 Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1991 Volvo 940’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your 940’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Volvo 940 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1991 Volvo 940 suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician.

1991 940 Steering & Suspension Questions

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 940's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Why should my Volvo 940 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Volvo intended.
  • When does Volvo 940 power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your 940’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
