Volvo Penta MD2030 genuine service parts are made to exacting standards to withstand the harsh saltwater environment in which marine diesel engines operate. If you need helps with any technical issue regarding your Volvo Penta MD2030 please call us.
The heat exchanger on any MD2030 should be cleaned every 5 years to prevent overheating. The MD2030 should run on Volvo green coolant. Do not use VCS coolant in an MD2030. Mixing VCS yellow and green coolant can cause gelling and blockages within the cooling system.
The other part to check is the exhaust elbow. As a guide, the exhaust elbow, 861906 should be removed every 5 years and checked for blockages, and replaced every 8 to 10 years, as the outer water jacket of the exhaust can build up with rust and corrosion.
