Volvo Maintenance Procedures - Common Additional Services
The air filter accumulates dust and debris and should be replaced to protect the engine and maximize fuel economy. For optimal engine performance and longevity, replace every 1 year or 15,000 miles.
Automatic transmission fluid becomes heat fatigued and accumulates moisture over time which can lead to automatic transmission damage if not serviced regularly. It should be replaced every 2 years or 30,000 miles.
Brake fluid accumulates moisture and contamination from component wear over time and unless replaced every 30,000 miles or 2 years, can cause brake system damage.
Engine coolant breaks down, gets rusty and becomes contaminated with debris from component wear over time and can cause engine or cooling system damage if not replaced every 2 years or 30,0000 miles.
Drive belts crack and become glazed over time and can squeak or even break. They should be replaced every 45,000 miles.
The Fuel Filter becomes restricted as it accumulates debris from filtering the fuel which, can lead to performance problems and early fuel pump failure. It should be replaced at the mileage interval recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
Spark Plug terminals wear down over time and can lead to engine misfires and increased exhaust emissions. Replace according to the vehicle manufacturers recommended replacement interval.

Volvo Scheduled Maintenance Questions and Answers
there is nothing covering this in any Volvo manual
Two owners, 206K miles, maintenance records up to 186K miles. I picked the car up with 1/8th tank of gas. I was told it ran fine on minimum grade fuel, so I filled it up. Drove it 44 miles home and parked it in the garage. I started it this morning and it would not stay running. Could it be the low grade gas? I am going to try one of the octane boosters /PEA by Chevron to see if the works. If not, fuel pump?
