10012 Spark Plug length issues for P1 & P2 Volvos
Prior to 2004, there was basically one length plug that fit in all FWD & AWD models. In late 2004, Volvo introduced a different cylinder head that was thicker between then combustion champer and the spark plug seat. . This difference means that these engines use different spark plugs and shorter ignition coil packs.
The thicker head appears on all P1 models and later P2 models (S60 T5, V70 T5, S60R & V70R models.) It also appears that the newer P3 (2007-) 6 cylinder engine uses the longer style plugs.
