Intercooler replacement cost at private import dealer?

Post by Volvos » Thu Jun 04, 2020 9:16 pm

2006 xc90 2.5T intercooler replacement

Due to a front end collision last fall I noticed several small holes in the intercooler and it’s triggering a p0101 fault code and probably getting all sorts of dirty air and gunk in the engine—anyone have any guidance with respect to repair costs on what a reasonable import shop should charge for a replacement? I’m in Kearney Nebraska

Thx

Part from a site sponsor appears to be around $500 new. You should be able to source a used one as well.

If you have a copy of VIDA you can see what steps are required. I have not done it, but I think the radiator has to come out to get to the intercooler. See here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=78115&p=419508&hil ... nt#p419508

If you can not do it, call around and get a quote. Ask the shop if they will install a used part. I would guess 3-4 hours.

The P80 forum has some DIYs...
For this part you can use junk yard part.
This part lasts the life of the car.
About 2h job if you do it in your driveway...
