Question about 1995 Volvo 960

1 Answer

Timing Someone, another shop, installed a head on a 95 volvo 960 but didn't set the timing. unfortunately, he didn't mark the cam gears either. None of us can figure this out, and I have two of the best mechanics I've ever met working on this thing. Please can someone help?

    Hi I have the similar problem but the only thing that I do not remember is how the camshaft aligment goes at the rear, becouse If you know the cut out is not at half of the circule is off center, I do not know If the big half go to the top or bottom.

Hi,
The 3L 24V straight 6 engine has timing marks on the crankshaft pulley & on the camshaft pulleys. The crankshaft pulley aligns with a mark on the front of the block, the camshafts align with two marks on the plastic cover on the top. The ignition timing, the fuel/air mixture & the valve timing are not adjustable. The 3L engine is known as an "Interference" engine, in other words, if the cam belt breaks or is not set up correctly, the pistons 'meet' the valves, with dire consequences!!!!!

    Hi Volvo760ma! I would find it easy to line up these marks but what do you do when there are NO MARKS?

Finding out how to find lost cam timing mark on a 1997 volvo 960


you are in a bit of a bind. Turning the engine over will result in bent valves so do not touch the crank shaft. you have to loose off all the rockers/ cam followers even to the point of removing the cam shaft. having done that remove no1 cylinder spark plug and by the use of a thin piece of wire turn the crank until the piston reaches top dead center. find this by rocking the crank back and forward until the piston dose'n move up or down check for the crank timing mark next replace the cam shaft and position the cam lobes for no1 piston in such a position that the inlet and exhaust valves move slightly up or down when the cam is moved slightly left or right. this is called valve over lap and with the piston on top dead center means that you now have valve timing for the engine. Cam timing marks can be dot on gear to shiny link on chain or if using a belt a dot on tooth lineing up with mould mark or join on head before starting up do a compression check to prove that there are no bent valves. if you are not mechanically minded enough to attempt the valve timing method it may be cheaper in the long term to let a qualified person do the job

I remove the gears from camshafts and didnt mark it


There should be a timing notch, dot, line, or even a different tooth on the gear somewhere to match them up.

How do you line up the cam gear to the camshaft on a 1996 volvo 960


just align the cam and crank marks with the marks on the covers. the timing marks WILL NOT ALIGN with the number one piston on TDC. just align the marks and the car will run ok. that's the correct way to do it.

I need cam timing settings for a volvo s40 2006


The timing marks on the cam gears align with the timing marks in the rear timing cover. The timing mark on the crank gear aligns with the timing mark on the oil pump assembly.
The tensioner is set by rotating the tensioner clockwise until the holes in the tabs on the left side of the tensioner are aligned, then tighten the center bolt.

I am replacing the timing belt on a 93 volvo 940 with 4 cly single overhesd cam no tubo. Where does the cam's timing mark line up? I don not have a repair manual for this.


I replaced mine on the same car.  I borrowed the NAPA timing belt book to get the timing marks.  There are three that need to be aligned.  I would suggest going to NAPA to buy the belt ($25) and while there, ask to see that book so you can write down the timing marks.  The mark on the crank shaft gear is on the inside of the gear, while the cam gear is on the outside of the gear.  Or, you could just buy the book.  It's still a lot cheaper than paying someone to replace the belt.
