Re: Black Oil in the Air-filter and housing

I had this once and it was seals in the turbo. It was a near new just still in warranty  Volvo D 2 75 with only a few hours on it. After vigorous pushing from me Volvo replaced the turbo.

Like many issues, this can have multiple causes. The most serious cause is worn piston rings causing ignition blow-by. Other causes can be the timing is not correct because of a worn timing belt and/or tensioner, or a computer or sensor malfunction. 

I think this is time to get a qualified Volvo mechanic onboard.

Dear Amelia’s

I’m not a Diesel-Engine Mechanic or Engineer and therefore excuse my unqualified question. I have discovered Oil dropping out of the Air-Filter on my Volvo D3-110 iC and I’m not sure if this is something unusual and I have to worry about it? I changed the Air-Filter about a year ago and maybe this happens after several hours of use.


Thanks, and fair winds
