2007 Volvo S40 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Volvo's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Volvo S40? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your S40 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my S40's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volvo S40’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Volvo, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
