    Product Description

    Many gas powered Volvos have a simple, thermostatically controlled shutter valve in the air filter box. This thermostat regulates the flow of fresh and pre-heated air in to the intake system.  (Pre-heated air comes to the air filter box  through the aluminum pre-heat hose that is connected between the air filter box and the exhaust manifold or downpipe. 

    It is common for the thermostatic valve to fail in the pre-heated air position. This routes super heated air through the Mass Air Flow sensor (air mass meter.)  Left upchecked, the MAF will soon fail.  It will also cause the engine to run very inefficiently as the engine management will excessively lean out the fuel mixture in response to the hot air.  Engine management systems were never designed to run with ambient air in excess of  400°F.

    Check your system on a day when the ambient temperature is above 50°F. The valve should be fully open to fresh air (not pre-heated.) If it is open to the pre-heat side, then you should replace the thermostat. Also, if the valve fails to reach full extension at hot and cold extreme, replace it.

    This thermostat is part of an emission control which means we cannot give you advice on defeating this system.

    If the thermostatic valve is stuck in the hot position then super heated air will be routed in to your engine. This will cause a loss in economy/efficiency and in many cases will cause the MAF sensor to fail.

    About Genuine Volvo

    Everything IPD supplies under the "Genuine Volvo" designation are the factory original Volvo parts. These are the same parts that Volvo used to manufacture your vehicles on the assembly line. All Volvo supplied Genuine Volvo parts are made to specifications by Volvo and under their strict quality control guidelines. Our customers should expect the same high-quality when purchasing Genuine Volvo products which in the past were exclusively available as dealer only items. Volvo relies on other high-quality OEM manufactures such as Lemforder, BehrSachs, Bosch, Valeo, Siemens, VDO, Corteco, and many more to maintain its dedication to quality and safety.

    In 2017, IPD announced that it was the exclusive North American distributor for Genuine Classic Volvo parts. We are proud of our Volvo heritage dating back to 1963, a reputation that is unmatched by others in the industry.

    Many may not know this but Volvo is Latin for "I roll", and the company was founded back in 1927 by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larsson as a spin-off from ball-bearing manufacturer SKF. The Volvo logo is a Swedish symbol for iron attached to a grill. With a nod to its heritage in alloys, Volvo chose a logo that depicted a ring bisecting at one o’clock. Today Volvo is known around the world as one of the most iconic brands known for safety, longevity, and its enthusiast following.
