I take it that this is a diesel engine. The oil you should be using is diesel oil 20w-40 or 50 next there is blowby from the combustion process that is heating the oil in the sump and it is fuming of. If the engine is running well it is not a great problem
If when doing an oil change the oil is thick and heavy and doesn't like to run out then it is a problem as the paraffins in the oil are burning and reducing the oil to tar.and this means engine rebuild.
If it is a petrol engine then you can use diesel oil in it as the only difference is the cleansing additive in the diesel oil. It helps keep a petrol engine clean inside
There isnt' one. Volvos are equipped with vent-box located underneath the intake manifold. Remove the oil dip stick tube and then the intake manifold and remove the box. Install a new breather box and make sure to clean the lines going to and from the box. If the breather box gets clogged, oil will push from the oil filler cap, dip stick tube and worst case, blow through the engine seals.

Labour ...............2 hour. May take up to 8 Hours. It Depends on your experience how fast you get the job done.
Location. its located somewhere behind the alternater. so you must romove alternator. (Ac Compressor removal is optional)
1. Disconnect Battery Cable,
2. Raise the car on Hoist Or Jack up
3. Drain Coolant from Radiator
4. Remove Right Front Wheel and Splash Shields
5. Remove Belt and Tensioner
6.Remove Dip Stick Bolt + remove Dip Stick tube. ( cover dip stick hole so that coolant dosunt get in to oil pan) or (Do an oil change if coolant gets in to oil pan)
7. Remove Lower Alternator Bolt
8. Remove Uper Alternator Bolts (Access from the Hood).
9. Remove All the Connections to the Alternator and Ac.
11. Remove Thermostat housing bolts
12. Remove thermostat
to installl Reverse the procedure and at the end open the bleeder valve and pour in coolant slowly in to the reservoir
add coolant and bleed the air out.
let the thermostat valve open and cerculate coolant untill Rad cooling fan cycles.
Milky substance on your dip stick indicates contamination in your engine oil, most likely coolant and that is an indication of head gasket, or intake gasket gone bad and coolant leaking into your oil system. Note that coolant in your engine oil is bad, coolant will corrode the internal engine's bearing causing you to replace or overhaul the engine. The engine not starting is most likely the result of being blown and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using Fixya and god luck
If there's no oil cap directly on one of the valve covers (it may have a breather hose attached which connects to the breather element in the breather pan), then some models require adding oil through the dipstick. If this is the case, there should be a cap type dipstick instead of the standard "hook". There are 6 different motors (8 including variations) for your truck so no manual has the exact location of the oil cap. Best of luck and hope I answered your question. Greg
