Volvo Recall 197: Engine Mount Bolts

2008 Volvo S80

The aluminum bracket for the engine mount could break due to lack of adequate clamping force. This could cause the engine to come in contact with the sub-frame, ultimately resulting in a reduced engine torque or stalling of the engine without prior warning, increasing the risk of a crash.

Engine And Engine Cooling — Engine

Volvo is recalling 102 MY 2008 XC90 and S80 vehicles equipped with V8 engines. These vehicles may have been built with incorrect bolts to the engine mount.
Dealers will inspect the engine mount bolts for specific markings. If any of the bolts contain the incorrect markings, the bracket and bolts will be replaced. All owners have been contacted and arrangements have been made to repair these vehicles.
