Product Description

Description

Failure of this part is the number one reason for MAF sensor failure on Volvos.

Many gas powered Volvos (and some diesel models) have a simple, thermostatically controlled flapper valve in the air filter box. This thermostat regulates the flow of fresh and pre-heated air in to the intake system.  The purpose is to speed up the engine warm-up period in cold weather (primarily for emissions purposes but also for heater function.) 

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. 

When this thermostat fails, it defaults to the pre-heated air position. This causes super heated air from the exhaust manifold to route through the Air Mass Sensor full-time.  Left upchecked, the MAF will soon fail because the electronics overheat.  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.  Keep in mind that the thermostat is really only designed to route hot air when the ambient air is below 40 degrees so this may not even be relevant in your environment.

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 in Latin roughly translates to "to roll".  The company was founded back in 1927 by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larsson as a spin-off from ball-bearing manufacturer SKF.  While the Volvo logo looks like the biology symbol for male, it's really the Swedish symbol for Iron. 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.

IPD has been proudly serving the Volvo community since 1963. We are motivated to be the very best destination for your Volvo needs. Our customer and vehicle first approach means that your experience is our first priority. We have truly hassle-free returns, an in depth Volvo blog, and provide DIY Volvo guides and videos for many of our products.
