2007 S40 2.4i / 2007 C70 T5
Good idea. I better double check that. Last night I DID look up the dipstick. Volvo parts online for a '13 S60 says it's part # 31330383. Dipstick in my car is 30777500. Looked it up, and Volvo said it's compatible with everything from early P1s to late model S60s. Tough to say for sure. What I DO remember is last time I changed my oil, I started with the "recommended" 5.8 liters and it was clearly still low on the dipstick, so I added about another liter before hitting the middle of the mark. So I think the dipstick setup is correct for this motor. Most likely came with the new engine, BUT I will still look at my oil pan to be on the safe side. A new stick and tube are cheap enough at dealer, so I might just go ahead and swap out since I was going to swap out the seal anyway as part of this whole job. Will verify what I have first either way.
The dipstick of my C70 is P/N: 30777500.
Things are getting trickier here:
First of all, I need to make clear which engines we will talk about so there's no confusion:
B5254T3 and B5254T7 are the original P1 "T5" engines.
B5254T5 is the "T5" engine that first came on P3 vehicles until MY2012. Which AFAIK, is practically the same (minor differences) as the T3/T7 + a Polestar tune. That's why it has 250HP from factory.
B5254T12 is the engine that replaced the B5254T5 on the "T5" trim from MY2013 and newer. We already mentioned this one has even more differences than the T5 (engine) when compared to the original P1 platform engines.
With that being said:
Oil pans are different between T3/T7, T5 and T12:
- T3 and T7 oil pan is P/N: 30777739
- T5 has two models:
- Without oil level sensor, P/N: 31375244
- With oil level sensor, P/N: 31316362
- T12 oil pan is P/N: 31375244 (T12 exclusive)
P3 have two dipsticks depending on the year (most likely due to the engine):
- Until 2012 is same as P1 T5 engines (P/N: 30777500)
- From 2013 and newer is P/N: 31330383 (uses tube P/N: 31330382). This is for B5254T12, B5254T14 and B5204Tx engines(last two not sold in the U.S.), according to VIDA.
From what I can make of all of this, it seems that you most likely have a T12 oil pan with a T3/T5/T7 dipstick. Until we don't get a confirmation of the difference between the oil dipsticks of T3/T5/T7 and T12 engines, you cannot trust that one you have. My advice is to first find which oil pan P/N you have, find a T12 dipstick with the tube and compare them.
