Drain the oil and remove the oil filter.

Remove the screw from the bracket for the fuel line.


Removing the oil sump(oil pan)

Slacken off all screwsholding the oil sump.
Remove all screws except fro four.
It is reccommended that four screws in the corners of the sump are left in place
Carefully tap the sump with a rubber mallet until the joint and its liquid gasket releases.
Remove the remaining screws.
Remove the sump.

Cleaning

Clean the gasket surfaces on the oil sump and cylinder block.
Use a razor blade or a gasket scraper and gasket solvent P/N 1161440

Warning Use a fume hood or extractor when using gasket solvent.(Fan if inside a garage)

Installing the oil pan

Apply liquid gasket P/N 1161 059-9 to the sump use roller P/N 951 2767 (Or mini roller from hardware store)

Install new o-rings
The oil sump.
Secure it loosely with a few screws.
Then the remaining screws.


Press the pump against the transmission
Tighten the screws (1),(2),(3) and (4) to 3Nm.

First tighten the screws (5) to 25Nm.
Then tighten to 48 Nm.
Tighten all screws in the sump joint to 17 Nm.
Start at the transmisson and continue fowards in pairs.
Install the screw for the bracket for the fuel line.
Connect the oil cooler to the sump.
Use new o-rings.

The dipstick and its pipe also use a new o-ring.


Note: check that all the o-rings are positions are correctly.

Fill the engine oil.
Run the engine to operating temp.
Check for oil leaks from the sump or the oil cooler.
Install the splash sheild under the engine.
Check the oil level.Top it off if needed.

Some more notes:
You may have to support the Right side of the engine and drop the subframe a little to get the pan out.

Have someone help you when installing the pan and watch the o-rings to make sure they do not fall while installing the pan.

Make sure when the pan is off you remove the pipe in the oil pan and replace those o-rings at the same time when you have it apart.

Also make sure you remove the oil pick up tube and replace that o-ring.

I think that is about all.
If there is anymore quiestions feel free to ask.

Sorry I don't have the Part # fro the o-ring kit but the dealer sells it as a kit.

Default RE: OIl pan o-ring replacement instructions!!!

How do I know if these need to be replaced? Do I just end up with a puddle of oil under my car or is there some other internal problem that I do no know about?

The oil presure will drop and the low oil pressure light will come on.

Default RE: OIl pan o-ring replacement instructions!!!

Hi,
Does anyone know what the Volvo stated time estimate is for these instructions? Don't they quote that in their service manuals? The dealer just tried to tell me it's a 10 hour job to pull the oil pan/replace the o-rings and the cost would be about $1,100. There is now way it could take 10 hours to follow the above instructions. Right? Also, I was told that about half of the time the oil pan itself has to be replaced (~$300) because of sludge build up in the baffles. Does this sound right?

I have a feeling that Volvo quoted time is in the neighborhood of 3 maybe 4 hours. I plan on having it out with the service manager over this. I could go somewhere else but the dealer is much more convienient.

I guess I could do this myself. How hard would this be if you only had two jack stands? I didn't really see a list of required tools so I'm guessing I have every thing I need accept oil filter, set of o-rings/gaskets, gasket solvent and of course oil.

Thanks, for any advice.

Does this oil-pan o-ring problem eventually happen to all 99 S80s or is it some kind of manufacturing problem on some S80s. Or does it happen at a perticular millege. My 99 S80 2.9 has 94K miles on it and just by reading that it cost over a $1,000 to fix it is starting to get me a little uneasy.

Well, it seems to me from reading this and other forums that 99 and 2000 S80s are particularly prone to this problem. It seems to boil down to just normal wear on the rings. For what's it worth, I called an independent Volvo only shop since my above post and they said they would do it for $416 plus parts (oil, filter, o-rings,) unless the oil pan needed to be replaced then that would be another $389. Still not sure what classifies the oil pan as needing to be replaced.

I don't have any time on it but I would say about 4 to 5 hours.

I have never had to replace an oil pan due to sludge.

The pick up tube Yes.

It could be done in one day at home with Jackstands.

The o-rings fail with the Age of the Car.

Hey Tech, one question about this.
If the car appears to leak just sitting in the garage, even a few days after being driven, would you think it most likely would be the oil sump leaking?
