Here’s Why 1993 Volvo 960 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Volvo 960, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your 960 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 960, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1993 Volvo 960 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 960 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1993 Volvo 960 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Volvo 960 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1993 Volvo 960 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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 960. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1993 Volvo 960. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Volvo 960 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 960) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Volvo 960 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1993 Volvo 960 running newer, longer. To learn how often Volvo recommends you have the oil changed in your 1993 960, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1993 Volvo 960.

Maintaining your Volvo 960 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Volvo 960 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 960's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Volvo 960 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Volvo 960 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Volvo 960? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1993 Volvo 960 maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

1993 Volvo 960 Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1993 Volvo 960. Get answers to common Volvo 960 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Volvo 960? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Volvo 960 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Volvo 960 engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Volvo? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Volvo 960 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
