2002 Volvo S40 Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volvo's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volvo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my S40's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Volvo S40 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Volvo. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
