front center of eng under hood (little more to pass side)must remove air intake tube and then you can see the top that screws off with a special large socket (buy it before you start)about 10" down then its a cartridge inside(its easy once you figure it out)

SOURCE: VOLVO S40 VVT VALVE
Very easy to swap the vvt valve,but that will not guarantee to rectify the problem,more than likely it will be the vvt pulley/timing unit,this will involve the timing belt coming off.
The vvt valve is located under the upper timing cover,remove the cover and you will see the valve situated on top of the head,undo the connector and remove the 4 bolts and the valve will come off,alittle bit of oil will come out on removal.
remove gasket and ensure the area is clean.
Re-fitting is opposite procedure,ensure a new gasket is fitted.
Hope this helps

have battery charged fully. start car test the output voltage of your alternator. do this by probing the batt pot terminal on backside of your alt. if it is good it must be above 12.35v if not replace

Water in combustion chamber makes white smoke--suspect that the head gasket is leaking water into the chamber. If oil leaking around turbo, it may have a bad bearing and bad oil seal. Check waste gate valve and control.
