PCV System Cleaning Tutorial w/ Pics
This tutorial will help you clean the PCV system on your 1993-2000 5-cylinder Volvo engine. Keep in mind that this is focused on a later-generation Turbo model (I have a 1998 S70 T5), there will be some differences between each year and depending whether yours is a N/A or earlier model.
If you own a turbo, it is a good idea to clean the PTC nipple periodically every 40-50K miles or so (see below), or get rid of the flame trap if your N/A car still has it installed.
Some introductory notes: Before you even start this job, make sure you’ve got all the tools you’ll need together, especially if it’s your only car.
Bonus! Volvo Facts
- Volvo revolutionised safety in cars when engineer Nils Bohlin created the three-point seat belt in 1959. Bohlin’s innovative Y-shaped design protects the chest, pelvis and shoulders upon impact. We waived the patent for the pioneering design so that other car manufacturers could use it too. Volvo’s commitment to safety has saved an estimated one million lives
