Product Description


The breather systems on these overhead cam Volvo motors are an often overlooked component under the hood of these models but can cause major issues if not addressed. A clogged breather box or flame trap can cause positive crankcase pressure which then starts pushing out on all the seals and gaskets within your engine. Worst case scenario if this pressure goes unchecked it can pop a seal out leaving a huge mess and a bigger headache. 

We've constructed this handy kit to service the main components of this crankcase ventilation system and take the guess work out of which components you need for your Volvo. This is a go to kit for someone who has never serviced this system on their Volvo before or if your car is coming up on major milesone for the system to be serviced. We recommend the flame trap to be cleaned and inspected every 10k miles and the breather box replaced every 50-70k miles. 

Kit includes:
  • A plastic flame trap
  • Flame trap coupler hose
  • Flame trap housing
  • A flame trap breather box
  • Breather box O ring

We also carry the hose which runs from the flame trap housing to the plastic inlet pipe which should be inspected when the flame trap is serviced. See recommended/ comparable products tab for this hose. 


About Aftermarket

Aftermarket parts are a reasonably priced and good alternative to OE products. We often supply aftermarket products in place of OE parts that are no longer available as well. 

Some items will be better than stock or considered an upgrade from the OE design in the aftermarket brand. 

Other items will work as a less expensive alternative to stock. 

We will not sell a product that we do not believe in, so rest assured you are fine with the aftermarket brand in most applications!

If you have any questions, contact our customer service team to advise on the best aftermarket products for your Volvo.
