2012 Volvo S60 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Volvo S60 Run Better

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 2012 Volvo S60. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your S60’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Volvo, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your S60’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Volvo S60

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Volvo S60 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your S60'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 S60. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your S60's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Schedule your next 2012 S60 engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Volvo, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2012 Volvo S60s

  • Will it hurt my Volvo S60 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 S60? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Volvo S60 engine? 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.
