Hi Peeps, Recent oil change from my 2011 Volvo S60 with 2.0T engine. Currently at 71,000+Km, 45K Mi. Penzoil Platinum 5W30, 12,400Km / 7,750 mi on this OCI Volvo filter purchased from parts dealer. Counted 80 pleats! Pleats were still tight and firm. Prolly could go 10K mi with no problem with so much filter media.
Overall engine is fairly clean. Filter picked up a few specks of carbon. Filter is good quality stuff.
I can't remember COO for the oil filter but I believe it was msde by the same manufacturer that supplies Volvo. Construction looks similar.
Label on it is "Professional Parts Sweden". Unfortunately I threw away the rest of the box. So no COO
Yes filter is mounted with threads facing up. No ADBV needed but the one I got from the dealer did have a pancake style black nitrile ADBV though. This one may be the old style ADBV with the runner ring on the under side of the threads?
