Let’s talk about Volvo PZEV Models
Do You Own a Volvo PZEV model?
Volvo PZEV Models (Partial Zero Emission Vehicle) indicates substantially different parts and service intervals for your Volvo.
“As indicated by some of my prior posts, I have had a dilemma or two with some parts, locating fuel filter, etc. I discovered last night through some reading (which I should have done in the 1st place) my car is a 2.4l engine code 64. Which translates into the PZEV low emissions model. Apparently the PZEV was only sold in a handful of states in the northeast and California.
My manual states the t-belt service on the PZEV model is to be done at 150k, I just did mine at 77k, why would the interval be different? Also, the tensioner for this car is different, which I discovered, but didn’t really understand why until now. All of the PZEV (V70 04 anyway), models will have the steel gas tank and the fuel filter located inside. Which now explains why after much searching we couldn’t find it.”
