Tune-ups are a routine maintenance needed to keep your car performing correctly. Regular tune-ups can extend the life of a vehicle and ensure it is operating at its full performance. Typically, a tune-up is included in the regular maintenance section of Volvo owner’s manuals.
Tuning-up your car can mean a lot of things. It’s a good idea to check the car’s ignition system and all filters, belts, hoses, and fluids. Many may not need to be replaced, but it will give you a chance to stop small issues that could develop into big problems if left unchecked. If you want to learn how to do some of the repairs listed below, consult one of our How-To guides.
