Includes accessories for draining engine oil or transmission fluid directly through the dipstick tubes. Purchased used last October, down 4 quarts 2 weeks ago. The engine will come with its own 12 month 12,000 miles parts warranty as well. This is from Technical Journal 24643. Taking it in for service at the dealer this week. Since they are a subscriber to them, I also asked if the people that bought were told of the repair.
Less visits to the mechanic for engine service and oil changes as well which will save you hours of time and a significant amount of money. I gave them an earful including a link to this site. I am really upset after reading this blog as no one in the dealership told me about this problem. Newly designed drum features a second port for filling or dumping fluids without having to remove the pump, saving both time and clean up afterwards. We have been having the low oil, oil light issues for about the last 15 thousand miles. I guess worse means I break down? At 2900 miles the oil dip stick was at the last mark on the stick and two quarts were added which put it at the full mark but the oil was very dark and thick. We took the car back, they kept it for over a week, saying they were sending data to volvo, and waiting for replies.
The dealer says it is covered under the warranty. After almost 2 weeks they said it was fixed and that the engine camshaft cover was not sealed properly at the factory and it sucked oil into the Pistons… I told them that this was now on my vehicle record on my brand new investment and my car was now worth substantially less at resale. Am I being duped, or does this fit the bill of a known oil consumption issue? My question is simple: do I have a case to recoup my initial expenses for the replacement — even by an independent? I am willing to give them one more chance to fix the oil consumption issue but at this point the turbos, cats and O2 sensors will all need to be replaced as well. I let him know that i was concerned about the fact that my car was now out of warranty. It pretty much sucks, as I thought, as did many others, that Volvo made a reliable product.
There is no software glitch. Please visit and we will glad to review your situation. I was told this should fix the problem but I will be monitoring my own oil consumption test every other week to be sure as the vehicle is under warranty My question is having anyone with an oil consumption problem had the updated software, dipstick, decal, and had it solve the consumption problem? Judging from the number of cases that are happening with this engine, could a class-action suit be filed? All this info is documented against your car. Most seem to be after 2011. Only the original purchaser of the part can receive a credit after they have purchased a replacement.
Amsoil is great for motorcycles too! Now I have to do it again. I have warrantee coverage up the wazoo and have already paid off half the value of the car. Last month, however, I made a 900 mile round trip—fresh oil—and in downtown Atlanta rush hour traffic, the Low Oil Level warning appears. The Xc60 runs flawlessly and has not lost a ml of oil in the 3 years. There was no leak on that either. They said the Volvo fix was to install a new Breather Box. Codes for color and upholstery, etc.
I thought it being a premium car there will be no issues. I am going to closely watch the oil consumption issue and follow up with my dealer. Couple of months later when I was on my way to work, I got the message that oil is low. Now, as mentioned, if your car has the oil level electronic sensor, make sure the sensor reading is good because many recent models had false readings - Audi, Bmw and so on - with these newly introduced switches. So the stick is not the issue. I have the records for all the oil changes.
Oil consumption problem started almost immediately. It has always been taken to the dealer for scheduled maintenance. Great for cold starts and hot summers! This is a defective engine in these model years. Do I likely have a case to make them make repairs at no cost or any alternatives here if they do not accommodate repairs? This also refreshes the protective additives in the oil. They agreed and said it should not have burned a quart of oil. We will not provide a replacement or credit for any part not purchased directly from our store.
Amsoil is the best synthetic oil made in the U. I have been offered a loaner. Called Volvo and Dealer, I feel fortunate that Volvo is covering the repair cost. Elevated nickel content and careful engineering in the B21 family of engines has given Volvo legendary status as a durable car manufacturer with seven digit examples still rolling down the roads. It is essential that you keep all oil change records in your glove compartment or in an easy-to-find file. Than again said it was a oil level sensor issue they replaced both. What has the dealer said about now your new vehicle with the oil light??? I have escalated to Volvo.
No sweat, I put in a qt of dino oil in to bring up to full on the stick and it didn't burn a drop for 7000mi. You should always attempt to verify the information with your vehicle manual or information provided on the underhood stick, sometimes also located on the top of the accumulator. If you are returning regularly to a Volvo authorized dealer to address this oil consumption issue, or if parts are being replaced to fix the issue, hang on to your repair invoices. Some people get new engines while others are told sorry. As an added precaution I have a friend who is a master mechanic that agreed to look at the car for me and file anything he sees. This is our 4th Volvo last one was a 2005 V70 that burned a quart or so every 2 months but I just chalked that up to age and worn rings. They told me today they had to order a new dipstick and I told my mom and brother it would probably be 3-4 inches longer than the original so it would go further into the oil.
I am really concerned with keeping this car with risk of further engine problems out of warranty but am worried the trade in value will take a hit due to the history of the car. Now here is the story!! So, I add another quart 9. I got an oil consumption test done every 1000 miles which for me is about 3 weeks. Took car to dealer, they said it was a sensor issue, which they have changed and no other problems until Aug 2015 when it went on again. I added a couple quarts, got a reading, then added a couple more, in total I put 5 quarts of oil in this car to get it in the normal range!! We changed the oil and filter at home and found the filter plugged with burnt oil and a concerning amount of metal in the filter paper. No Volvo shop within 6 hrs of here, so I have to trust what I can find on line.
