Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2010 Volvo S40

Tune Into Your Volvo S40

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2010 Volvo S40. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your S40. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Volvo, you can rest assured you’re investing in your S40’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Volvo S40

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2010 Volvo S40. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your S40's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your S40. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your S40 can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Use Volvo’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2010 Volvo S40s

  • Will it hurt my Volvo S40 to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Volvo’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Volvo S40? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Volvo S40. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Volvo S40 engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
