How to repair Volvo yourself: common malfunctions

Safety is the best-known feature of Volvo cars. Apart from this, the cars are comfortable, elegant, can well withstand driving on poor-quality roads. The cars break down rarely. When properly maintained, they won’t require repairs for long. Below you can find a lot of valuable information on DIY Volvo repair and servicing, which will help you to save on car workshop services.

Engine

A driver should replace the air, fuel and oil filters, spark plugs, and oil in due time. Using AUTODOC Club’s illustrated Volvo repair manual provided in PDF you can learn how to install new parts yourself at home.

We advise you to regularly check the joints between the air pipes and intercooler of the Volvo S60 and Volvo V60: they are prone to loss of tightness. In the Volvo XC90A, the fuel tank door may jam. The problem can be solved by cleaning the terminals of its actuator. See more detailed information in our video guides.

Transmission

The automatic transmission by Aisin is sensitive to overheating and soiling. To avoid failures, you need to regularly replace the transmission oil. Also, some car owners install an AT oil cooler which is larger than the standard one. Long use of a transmission with soiled ATF leads not only to worn solenoids but also to clogging of the hydraulic actuator channels, which is fraught with its destruction.

Running gear

The rear wheel hubs of the Volvo XC90 are usually the first to break down. As for the XC70, not only its rear wheel hub bearings are vulnerable, but the front ones as well. Also, the front bushes and propeller shaft CV joints get broken relatively early. You can replace these parts yourself with the help of step-by-step tutorials on Volvo repair, which can be downloaded from our website for free.

Passenger compartment

Despite the high-quality interior trimming materials, car owners note some defects in the passenger compartment. For instance, in the Volvo XC70, the gear stick boot wears down rather quickly. It is advisable to replace it with a leather one. Also, over time, the armrest starts to screech. It is recommended to glue it over with a special material. You can remove these and other defects with the help of our recommendations and step-by-step Volvo repair and servicing manuals.
