    Hi i have volov 2016 780 mile 571421 my truck keep losing coolant like galon per day I took it to volvo dealership and they put new egr coolant and new egr valve i took the truck for a load and I figure out the truck still loosing coolant i took it back to dealership they work on it and suddenly they say that from injection cup they told me it’s cost about 5000 after they start taking the truck a part for injection cup they come agin with new estimate they say
    REMOVED VALVE COVER TO START REPAIRS UNDER LINE A. FOUND OIL TO BE DISCOLORED AND VERY THICK. FOUND CAMSHAFT LOBES WORN AND GROUND ON CYLINDERS 1,2,3,4. INSPECTED ROCKER SHAFT AND FOUND ALL ROLLERS AND ROCKERS ARE GROUND AND PITTED. REMOVED OIL FILTERS AND CUT OPEN TO INSPECT FOR METAL OR DEBRIS. FOUND NONE IN FILTER MEDIA. CRACKED OPEN OIL DRAIN PLUG TO CHECK FOR WATER CONTAMINATION. DID NOT SEE ANY AT THIS TIME. WOULD LIKE TO REMOVE OIL PAN AND INSPECT BOTTOM END OF ENGINE. BELIEVE ENGINE OIL BEING TO THICK HAS CAUSED THIS BUT WOULD LIKE TO CONFIRM NO OTHER CONTAMINANTS IN OIL SYSTEM. RECOMMEND AT THIS TIME TO REMOVE OIL PAN FOR INSPECTION, REMOVE AND REPLACE CAMSHAFT AND ALL ROCKERS, CHANGE OIL AND FILTERS
    I don’t have any sing Off bad camshaft my only complaint is that egr loosing coolant i don’t no why is volvo dealership bring this stuff from where they’re trying to pull my foot in to make me pay 22000 dollars for fixing my truck

    Maybe, maybe not. Do what I said. Take a mechanic you trust and go see what they're talking about. Or post pictures and let us see what they're talking about.

    Tell them put new oil filter on, top off oil, reassemble everything, go get 2nd opinion, and a 3rd.
