LOL! I do feel your pain Mr. Parker...

"Keep you sane"? Perhaps a bit too late, but it may have slowed the unstoppable progression.

I have clipped your comment about tools and sent it to my wife, I will let you know what she says on that.

All the best

Re: 2012 S60 T5 High Oil Consumption - Did you fix it?

Hello there, I would not touch it because they only used that engine for one year. As you likely know 2012 was the first year they started making the S60 again, and they changed the engine (my opinion only the piston rings) for the 2013. If the car has over 100k miles, and the PCV unit has never bee...

Re: Weird sound 2012 S60 T5 with mass air flow engine light.

Hello, I could not get your video to play but there is a common issue for that car when the PCV system fails, the PCV valve does not close at idle. The valve should be near closed at idle (high manifold vacuum) and modulates to open at higher RPM. When it does not close at idle this very high crankc...

Re: oil catch can

Hello, I am not a expert but do have the PCV system off my 2012 S60 T5 as we speak. The "catch cans" you mention I believe are after market devices designed to trap and return oil to the crankcase, not the intake? The can would need to install in the rubber line from the factory PCV to top of the cy...

Re: 2012 S60 T5 High Oil Consumption - Did you fix it?

In reply to Oragex, thank you for your comments. The PCV on this car is a Mann-Hummel built unit. They are a huge company that among other things mfg a wide range of oil separation/crankcase pressure control systems for engines from small to high HP diesels. The unit is fairly complex, I have not se...

Re: 2012 S60 T5 High Oil Consumption - Did you fix it?

Thank you Jimmy, my post is about this specific car which definitely has a problem! I have one question for you regarding your post: "On some Volvo engines the piston is changed to hold a wider changed oil ring and on others (the 5 cylinders) The oil ring is changed to have a stiffer oil ring. " Do ...

Re: 2012 S60 T5 High Oil Consumption - Did you fix it?

Thank you, this car burns around a quart in 600 miles. Pretty sure there is not much "consensus" on that being OK. Volvo issued two TJ on the subject for this car and this car alone with limited VIN application. That is what I am inquiring about. Would not take on the larger issue, will leave that t...

Re: 2012 S60 T5 High Oil Consumption - Did you fix it?

Thank you Rick, I am interested if anyone has dealt with this issue on this particular engine. I would be curious if they replaced the rings if the new rings were different than the old, and did that provide a long term solution. I would like to know if they fixed a issue with the PCV and that solve...

2012 S60 T5 High Oil Consumption - Did you fix it?

Hello all, The purpose of this thread is not to re-hash this well worn topic, it is to see if any can report success with it. When I married at the end of 2016 my wife arrived with a 2012 S60 T5 that had ~140k miles. Although a degreed and licensed mechanical engineer and airframe and power plant me...
