Volvo is issueing a recall notice on fuel injected 5.0, 5.7 2004 engines. The lines from the engine to the oil filter are not crimped very well and could blow off. Check out the BoatUS message board for serial numbers affected. When we took delivery of our new boat on Friday, the dealer tried to check on this but could not get through to Volvo. They did go out on a limb after my voice mail asking if ours had been corrected yet and ordered 8 sets of oil line hoses. One set to be used to replace ours. They have had no notification from Volvo yet on this problem. This was after also replacing a set on a boat last week that had less than 50 hours on it. This poor guy dumped out 4 quarts of oil into his bilge.

Even the dealers do not know too much about this problem yet. It was refreshing for us to talk to a pro-active service manager. This problem is not just on Regals but on any new boat with Volvo engines in it. If anyone you know has bought one of the other inferior brands, you may want to pass on this information to them also.
