I suspect that the turbo bearings/ seals are failed probably from shutting down the engine under full power. Consider a turbo rebuild to stop the oil problem.

SOURCE: ENGINE MISFIRE AND SHAKING

check your wire harness on the top of the engine. Volvo must have bought harnesses from Mercedes. The insulation just cracks and disintegrates, then the wires short. Not good for an ignition system.Once they short It can fry the circuit for that cylinder in the computer. Does not set a code other than Misfire.

SOURCE: 98 Volvo V70 Turbo engine oil leak

It may be the gromet for the PCV valve or it could be the spark plug rubber seal located in the valve cover if it is the type of engine that has the wires and spark plugs that go down through the valve cover, if this is the case buy a valve cover gasket with the rubber gromets that are located around the base of the hole where spark plugs fit through and install.

How can you determine if your oil leak is coming from your turbo on a 2002 volvo s60


Do you have a external leak or does your engine oil drop but you can not see a leak. My S60 had a leak and it was from the return pipe from the turbo to the sump.You can remove the belly plate and look from the bottom at the back off the engine.You will see the return pipe at the bottom of the turbo. If it does not leak at the there the turbo might be worn and it is blowing the oil into the intake.To check remove the intake hose and check for excess oil in the intake system.

Both radiator hoses are hard why 98 s70 volvo turbo


It has been my experience that both radiator hoses get hard with age, check the hoses for age and cracking because they usually are hard right before they give out. They get hard when they get old due to excessive oil covering because of an oil leak and heat from the engine and the coolant within the hose.

Just had my 120000 service done on a XC90 which I just purchased. It was running just fine and then started to consume oil like crazy. Took it back to mechanic and he said the turbo is going out. No...


There is the possibility,the turbo was going out and the previous owner had thicker oil with oil treatment additive in the engine,hiding the turbo seal problem.Did your service include an oil and filter change? Your new regular (proper viscosity) oil may now be showing the leaky turbo seal.Did you have a oil change done at your service?Once you have the seal/turbo rebuilt,may sure to always idle the engine a minute before shut off after fast driving.This will increase the life of the turbo seals.

I recently purchase a 2004 XC90 with over 200k miles. When attempting to change the oil (a long story) I noticed that the rubber hose connecting the hard plastic air intake(?) that crosses over the top...


This is the turbo air cooler hose and most of them have some oil in them from the turbo. i would replace the hose and keep an eye on it, the problem may be a worn turbo. the turbo is sucking in oil, the turbo may need replacing but i would nt replace it right now, just replace the hose and keep an eye on the engine oil level, if the turbo is working and the engine is not using oil and you dont see smoke coming from the exhaust system when accelerating then just replace the hose for now, hope this helps.

1991 volvo turbo idles and runs ok exhaust manifold gets glowing hot after highway speeds checked and repaired all vacuum leaks had replaced air mass unit before this happened. timing by the book 12...


The Garrett turbo-charger is notorious for leaking oil into the intercooler, and, into the emissions system. This happens because the bearing wears in the turbine assembly, and dumps lubricating/cooling oil into the combustion and intercooler system. It also ruins all of the rubber hoses that come in contact with the oil.

A result of this, after thousands of miles of driving: Your catalytic converter is clogged. The backpressure from the clogged exhaust increases the manifold temperature to cherry hot!

When I had my Volvo service and sales business, I lost money on only one Volvo; a turbo-charged 1988 wagon! A friend of mine who made his living salvaging Volvos had similar experiences with turbo-charged 240's and 740's. I hate to break the news to you my friend, but you will need to spend lots of money on that vehicle.

Trust me, do not try to fix it as it's a black hole---$700-900 for the rebuilt turbo ($250 for the rebuild kit), $200-300 for the catalytic converter and on and on! When I bought that vehicle from the original owner, It had a stack of repair receipts an inch thick!

The only recommendation, if you must keep and drive the car: remove the turbo-charger, intercooler, and all attendant hoses. Replace the air assembly with one from a normally aspirated B230F, and keep the airmass you just installed. Replace the catalytic converter with a good used one if you can find it.

Turbo oil seal is probably bad. This lets oil leak into the air intake from the turbo bearing. If smoke goes away during hard acceration, then this is probably your problem. Turbo replacement or rebuild is the fix for this.

First check for holes or disconnected air inlet hoses, that will give the sensor/meter a problem so it cannot send the correct signal.
