Re: Volvo oil pressure sensor

Hi Paul. We had the same exact issue.


Volvo sends their standard non-isolated engine to Volvo France, which does the ground isolation for Amel. This process does not get recorded to the serial number of the engine. Therefore, if you order a part from the serial number that Volvo France has changed, you will receive the wrong part.


The correct part number is 863169 CAPTEUR PRESSION. We ordered from Gwen Marine Service in France as recommended by Amel. They were 78 Euros each, 3 years ago. We also ordered a spare.


Happy Sailing;

Hi all,


I ordered a replacement oil pressure sensor from a UK Volvo dealer, Volspec. The engineer on the boat who was to do the replacement (as I am not on the boat at present) tells me the part sent is incorrect as it has only one connector pin whereas the old one that was removed has two. Volspec insists that the part is correct.


My engine is a D3-110i-C, 2008 model

The sensor p/n is 3545696


I would be interested to know if anyone has had any similar experience, or would be able to confirm if the sensor has 1 or 2 pins.


Thanks in advance.
