Re: Volvo oil pressure

Arno Luijten

Actually the pressure regulation is not in the oilfilter. It sits at the bottom of the block in the the housing of the oil cooler as far as I can see on the drawing. This regulator may be stuck. Can't say if this can be replaced in-situ.
What kind of hours does the engine have? Oil pump failure is not very common. The pump itself has a safety valve as well to protect it against over-pressure. That could be stuck as well.
