Question about Volvo S80

1 Answer

From the list i posted in my previous question, the volve service does include replacement of spark plug and serpentine belt, rotate tires. I am not sure if I need to replace all that at 66000 miles. I know i need someone to look at my exterior lighting I had few bulb failures and I could not put all the parts back properly. Do I need to go a volvo dealer? they are charging me $525+ for every 30000 miles service. how much do spark plug and serpintine belt cost? I have 66000 miles and i have no particular proble. just the computer in the car says i need regular service and check alarm system. also my 12volt plug does not work

You do not need to go to a volvo dealership. for the electrical work look in the yellow pages for auto electric repair shops. call around until you find one that works on volvos. they can replace your plug, or more likely the fuse for five dollars or less. once again go to an autozone store and they will help you change the fuse for no charge other than the fuse. the 525 charges are why these places should be called "stealerships" instead of dealerships. ONCE again, any one can check the serpentine belt. what you are looking for is obvious wear and tear. most cars go for 150,000 miles on the original serpentine belt. Spark plugs are a quick job. Even a walmart garage will do that for a few dollars.

What does service b mean


The A service and B service is an oil change and a long list of inspections. Unless the service is covered under warranty, or this is a new car and you want some piece of mind, I suggest only getting the oil change. The rest of the "service" consists of someone looking for problems with your car. Here's what's included:

plates, sun roof tracks and top off all fluids
- Cooling system inspection
- Includes antifreeze protection level, hoses and
clamps
- Brake inspection

discs, fluids and lines
- Inspect heating and ventilation dust filter, replace if needed. (Replacement additional. Dust filter prices vary by model)
- Function check
- Includes warning lamps, headlights, exterior
lights, seat belts, windshield wiper and washer
- Inspect and lubricate throttle linkage
- Check and clean air filter
- Reset flexible service system counter


B SERVICE (~ $379.95 + tax) :

Red light on maintenance required is on, what would that mean. Oil has been changed recently, approximately 45,000 miles on the car


the maintenance schedule is in the owners manual on the last 2 pages I believe, But here are some of the things to check the maintenance schedule on that car calls for oil changes every 3,750 miles if you primarily use the car around town or 7,500 if you do mostly highway driving without stop and go traffic. Most cars should go by the 3,750 schedule.

tire rotations should be every 7,500 miles. Brakes should be checked when the tires are rotated.

the major service on the 4 cylinder is every 30,000 miles. that includes the tune-up items of replacing spark plugs, adjusting the valves, replacing the air filter, transmission fluid, interior cabin filter and the inspections and adjustments.

the 6 cylinder does not need the valve adjustment or spark plug replacement until 105,000 miles. otherwise, the fluids and filter replacements are every 30k.

the timing belt on both the 4 cyl and the 6 cyl is 105,000. at that time the water pump and coolant are also replaced as well as the other accessory drive belts.

Brake fluid should be replaced every 3 years or 45,000 miles.

My chevy has about 98000 miles. When is tune up recommended.what is involved in the tune up?


what engine? The fuel filter is in the fuel tank, Spark plugs should be replaced, throttle body cleaned, and the truck generally checked over, battery , belts, brakes, tires ect. Spark plugs, trans fluid, filter, transfer case fluid change, are all due at 100k. You should have the 100K service done. Of course they base that on if you have been following the service schedule. Your owners manual will list all things that are due.

My 2003 Yukon has 110000 miles. I know the plugs and wires need replaced. What else should I do.


PCV valve if it has one, some GM trucks do not. air filter, use some strong fuel injection cleaner, not much else, other parts in this system are replaced as they fail. (cam position sensor, coils etc.)

be sure to grease the wire boots to prevent moisture and corrosion, and you might consider anti-seize on the plug threads.

There is no problem with the car at all i just want to keep the car in great condition so i was just wondering what regular maintenance is the most important and needs to be done regularly besides the oil...


New timing belt and serpentine belt every 50,000 miles. New filter with every oil change. Replace the air filter when it gets so that you can't see diffuse light through it. Watch fluid levels. Have the CV joints and rubber boots checked every 20,000 miles or so. Check with your transmission servicer for fluid and filter changes. Replace platinum spark plugs every 100,000 miles along with new spark plug wiring. Check the codes if the check engine light comes on. Replace the fuel filter ever 20,000 miles--more often if poor fuel quality.

Whats included in a 120k maintance


This almost always if different depending on the shop you take you car to. The best way is to look in your owners manual, pick your diving conditions, normal or extended use, and see what Mistubishi recommends. Should be at least, oil change,rotate,brake inspection, air filter, spark plugs, plug wire set, timing belt. On a Mits with over 100k miles I always recommended Distbutor cap and rotor, Transmission flush(for auto), Induction flush.

Mitsubishi eclipse convertiable timing belt change?


Typical timing belt intervals are every 60k miles. It's a very involved service to do the whole job - timing belt, timing belt tensioner, serpentine or accessory belts, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, all fluids, all filters, brake and suspension inspection, and tire rotation. On many cars it's recommended to change the oxygen sensors as well. Quite a bit of this can be done when you want, but the first five items are critical and should all be done. And regardless of whether your manufacturer says the coolant is "lifetime", replace it - don't reuse coolant. It's cheap and it's good practice to use new coolant.
