Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. The ECU is derating the engine resulting from the active fault and it will continue to do this until the problem is fixed. Check and verify the actual oil pressure is within specs ans if so check the sensor harness for problems since the sensor is new. Let me know if you have any fault code numbers and your serial number of your machine if you need more help

Hi This Is dieseldan55, In addition to what the other expert stated, a common failure point is the pressure relief valve mounted behind the oil cooler. If yours hasn't been changed yet indicated by still being green paint on the cooler base. Then i would highly recommend changing the oil cooler and base unit with the relief valve. A relativity easy job and if you need more details please ask for me. Thanks.

The oil cooler base is green. Where exactly is the pressure relief valve located?
Mechanic: dieseldan55, Mechanic replied 1 year ago

In behind the base, you will need to drain the coolant and remove the oil cooler and then the base to access the relief on the back side. Its a small check valve with a spring that will break or the check valve will become loose or unsecured in the mountings. I would advise to do a manual pressure reading first and that will ensure your on the right path. I can see if I can get a picture sent your way if you like.

What is normal oil pressure supposed to be at?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Is the relief valve serviceable separately?
Mechanic: dieseldan55, Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Oil pressure on a warm engine at high idle is 60-70 psi. Here is a picture of the relief, item #2.

It does offer a part number, however I have always change the unit out. I would recommend changing the unit out, because the earlier versions had a different housing and if you bought the one part it might not accept the piece.

I highlighted the gaskets needed, since you will need to remove item 24 as well to slide the pieces out.

I forgot to check off item 1, up to you on oil cooler replacement. I have done a bunch of those as well since a few have failed.

Oil pressure is at 32psi intermittently when warm
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Why does number 1 and 22 say their the same thing?
Mechanic: dieseldan55, Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Okay then it would be worth inspecting the relief. The nomenclature is a Volvo brilliance in part description. Just use the picture to get the correct part number.
