    Product Description

    Volvo uses a small in-line filter to manage positive crankcase ventilation on their 4 cylinder engines.

    The ventilation system incorporates a small flame trap filter (PCV) to protect against possible crankcase explosions due to a backfire. This filter is overlooked in most workshop manuals and without periodic maintenance it will plug up with oil deposits and cause excessive crankcase pressure, which in turn cause significant oil leaks all over the engine. An additional contributor to this problem is the fact that on these models, the filter and filter holder are buried below the intake manifold and pretty tough to access.

    We recommend checking the flame trap condition at every oil change.

    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.
