Your Guide to 1993 Volvo 940 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Volvo 940 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 940. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 940 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1993 Volvo 940!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Volvo, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 940 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1993 Volvo 940 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volvo 940

Bring your 1993 Volvo 940 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 940'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 1993 Volvo 940. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 940 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volvo 940 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 940 stranded. Your Volvo 940 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 1993 Volvo 940 engine. To learn how often Volvo recommends you have the oil changed in your 1993 940, check out the information table at the beginning 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1993 Volvo 940? We can help with that, too!

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Volvo 940 steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Volvo 940's steering system with regular maintenance.
