Product Description


A common problem found in high mileage 5 & 6 cylinder engines used in 850 S70, V70, C70, S60, S80 and XC90 models is low oil pressure at idle that will cause the low oil pressure warning system to activate. Usually this is caused by failed o-rings in the oil pump pick up tube connection, which allows air to be drawn into the system. The air causes the oil pressure to drop to dangerous levels. If you are experiencing flickering low oil pressure warning lights or messages, this is the most likely cause. The kit includes all the seals and gaskets you’ll need to do the job. You will also need the chemical gasket kit for the oil pan surfaces as Volvo does not use a conventional gasket in this application.

One way to test for this issue is run the engine until warm, let it idle for 2 minutes then turn off the engine.Pull the dipstick and wipe it clean. Reinsert into the engine and then inspect the oil on the dipstick as you remove it. If you see a considerable amount of bubbles in the oil that is on the end of the dipstick it's likely that the seals are failing and allowing air to be drawn into the system.

This is a "generic" Volvo branded kit that contains the common o-rings and gaskets needed on a variety of Volvo engines.  Not all components will be used on all applications. It is possible that your particular engine may need additional seals or gaskets.
