When should you change cam belt on volvo s60


Well, most belt companies and aftermarket folks recommend 60,000 to 80,000 miles on a timing belt. You have an interference engine which means if the belt breaks while the engine is running it could damage the valves and pistons. So I would recommend doing it soon.

I have 140K on by 2002 S60 what service should I complete. Did big service at 75K, timing belt never changed. What do you recommend?


You should have changed the Timing Belt at 60K niles, by not changing the Timing Belt you are taking a serious gamble on the Belt breaking on you at anytime, leaving you stranded and costing you thousands of dollars in engine repairs. If your car runs fine, No Check Engine Lights, I would just do your regular engine oil changes, flush Radiator, Change Transmission Fluid and Filter, but change the Timing Belt ASAP.

I have a 02 santa fe . can i go 90,000 be for changing belt.


Carfixer 1 is right. The Hyundai engine is called an interference engine, which means that when the timing belt breaks, it will allow the valves to hit the pistons and you will ruin your engine.

Do yourself a favor and replace the belt at recommended intervals. If you are past the 60k mark, have it done right away and save yourself a lot of grief and expense.

Timing belt replacement


The timing belt on this car should done based on which ever comes first recommended mileage or time basis. If this car has the 2.5 litter Engine I would recommend changing it ASAP. The 2.5L engine is What is referred to as an interference engine which means that if the timing belt breaks the pistons will slap the valves rendering the engine useless. Keep in mind a timing belt is made only of rubber and nylon cord it is not uncommon for them to fail before the recommended service intervel

How often do I have to change the timing belt


On the 2L (4 cylinder) engine it is recommended to inspect the belt at 37200 miles and replace the belt at 56000 miles.

On the 2.7L (V6) it is recommended to replace the belt at 60000 miles.

And, both these engines are interference engines (meaning if they break a belt, pistons hit and bend valves) which is not a pretty sight...
