1995 Volvo 940 Maintenance and Service Schedule

When does Volvo recommend steering and suspension service for 1995 Volvo 940s?

Does Your 1995 Volvo 940 Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first bought your 1995 Volvo 940, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your 940 bounces, sways to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 1995 Volvo 940, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis components, axle bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Volvo 940’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Volvo 940 Replacement Shocks & Struts

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 1995 Volvo 940’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1995 Volvo 940’s shocks and struts replaced since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. Bouncing, side-to-side swaying, or rocking forward and backward can all point to issues with your Volvo 940 shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 1995 Volvo 940 suspension shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Save yourself the shock of steering and suspension problems by scheduling an appointment at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1995 940 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Volvo's suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Volvo 940? Rotation and alignment are all about making small tweaks that have a big impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • Does my Volvo 940 power steering fluid need to be checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your 940 is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Volvo's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
