    My car VIN is YV1BZ525B1xxxxx. This shows up as a 2011 Volvo XC70 R AWD 2.5T 300hp.

    The car was bought in Spain and is a XC70, 2011, DRIVe, 163BHP, FWD.

    I was trying to find the correct engine code and hence service interval for my car.

    Best regards,

    I have a doubt i hope you can help me with. I’m From Chile and the vin number of my volvo v40 is YV1MV4851F2234961. According to your information:
    This VIN is from a 2015 Volvo V40 (2012 – ) 1.6 T4 180hp

    Chassis Number: 234961
    Model Year: 2015
    Model: V40 (2012 – )
    Factory: [Belgium] Ghent Plant VCG 22
    Engine Code: B4164T

    Where Can i find official certification from Volvo of this?
    The local distribuitor sold it to me like a 2.0 (190Hp) on march 2016 (like a 2016 model). Of course i don’t want to check this with them and need someone from corporative staff who can verify with offical information.

    hello the car is identified on the back as a 740 turbo intercooled you have it listed as model 745.
    the engine number is B230FT128927103635 you have it listed as B230GT which is correct ?
    it is a 3 speed ( D, 2, 1 ) ? automatic with overdrive what gearbox do i have ?
    is it all wheel drive — feels like it
    do you have any information on what cylinder head ?


    • Alexandra M. says:

      Hi. It’s a 745 because it is a wagon (5 for 5 doors), but in the rear both sedan and wagons have 740 badge.
      B230FT is the engine code for the 2.3 8 valves Turbo engine.
      Volvo 700 series is allways rear wheel drive.
      Gearbox should be an AW71
