Additional Technical Information

On newer engines found in FWD and AWD Volvos, special anaerobic sealant is used on the cast aluminum oil pans and valve covers/camshaft carriers. Do not use RTV when doing valve cover, cylinder head, or oil pan work, as RTV cures in a much thicker layer compared to the thin anaerobic sealant. Use Mahle, Elring, or Genuine Volvo anaerobic sealant instead.

About Mahle

Mahle has been manufacturing high quality products since 1920.  Mahle is one of the largest manufacturer of filtration products in the world.  Many OEMs including Volvo use Mahle for many of their OE products.  For example, in many cases, the filter you buy in a blue Volvo box will have Mahle branding on it.  Mahle offers the same quality products to the aftermarket that is does to the OEMs.  In addition to filtration, Mahle also produces engine parts such as pistons and engine gasket sets.  Mahle recently acquired Behr which expands their coverage in to other high quality products such as thermostats and heating and cooling system parts.
