Volvo Recall over 500,000 over fire risk

Volvo is recalling half a million cars worldwide after fire risk is found with a faulty engine component. A spokesman at Volvo has released information that investigations by Volvo Cars have seen that the plastic inlet manifold may melt & distort in very rare cases. This may contribute to the cause of an engine fire. The risk comes after a build-up of carbon deposits were found on many models that caused the inlet manifold flaps to cease. The recirculated exhaust gases coming back into the inlet, to reduce emissions, cannot pass through the flaps efficiently & build up heat in the inlet manifold. The recall was sent out in Mid-July 2019.

All of the vehicles involved in the recall were produced between 2014 and 2019 and have a 2-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine.

  • S90
  • V40
  • V60

  • V90
  • XC60

There hasn't been any reports of accidents or personal injuries related to the issue at this time.

Customers will receive a letter from the company urging them to contact their local dealership in order to have their car fixed.

Comments

Hi we recently received a letter informing us that we would here shortly about the replacement part due to fire risk. We would be most grateful if you could advise of the present procedure. Yours sincerely Steven and helen

Hi Steven & Helen. Thanks for the comments, we advise that you speak to Volvo. The risk is when carbon deposits build up in the inlet manifold. the heat build-up can then pose a fire risk if it melts the plastic inlet manifold. Volvo should check this for you if you give them a call with your concerns.
