SOURCE: Replace timing belt on Volvo S60

There is no room for error...... Zero clearance. If off one tooth it can and will bend valves. if you are one that just feels the need to get alittle dirty or just can't pay for the service, then get out your Haynes out and turn to .....Tune up, and look at replacing timming belt. Get a cam gear tool that locks them into place so as that they will not move when u have them lined up. make sure they are lined up with marks as said in book. then make sure crank as well as all marks are lined up acordingly. make sure belt marks are lined up with everything. i would reccomend using a volvo belt though cause it will have all the marks on it.However other company's make good quality belts also at a fraction of the price. So it is really up to you.
Good thing when doing timming belt is to also change out your timming belt tensioner. YES do this it will save you a engine in the long run. it is a moving part that will go bad, it will freeze up and snap timming belt. rip out teeth in thebelt and bend valves. So as a gen rule...When you change timming belt, Change belt tensioner at same time since you cant just change tensioner without changing or getting timming belt off. Remember to use your HAYNES. It is your friend and will save you money in the long run. Good luck... Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Volvo S60 sensor ?

Sounds like an oxygen sensor (there are two). I had a recent problem where I had a rough idle and my S60 continued to stall out. Turned out to be the rear oxygen sensor. After replacement, car idles nicely and car drives normally.

SOURCE: need Volvo 04 s60 timing belt diagram and install

My apologies for the delayed response. I am going back and answering questions that were never answered.
Click on the following Link. It has all the Diagrams for the Timing Belt you will need.
Before Clicking, let me know if this helped.
Again my sincerest apologies...

http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2004/make/volvo/model/s60/2004_volvo_s60_timing_belt_diagram_marks.htm

As far as the install info, due to the sheer volume and number of steps that would have to be included, you may want to purchase a Haynes Manual or Chilton Manual at an auto parts store for around $20 to $25. The above site also has On-Line Repair Manual you can purchase.

Whe resently changed the timing belt on our S60 Volvo 2002 now she does not want to ref up the refs stay low


The timing belt is very tricky to replace and requires a special tool to align the pulleys. It sounds like you may be off a tooth or two on the pulleys which will affect the cam position.

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.

What are the timing marks for a 2002 volvo s60


if your only changing your belt you should be ok if you make your own. but if you already removed the belt and forgot to mark it you will need to use timing tools that go into the back of the camshaft behind two little rubber caps.

When i accelerate car hesitates


just wondering,, when you accelerated you say the needle went up ,,but did the car kinda splutter, or not pull away at all when you accelerated,,,if the needle goes up but the car doesnt seen to pull away then that sounds like a clutch slipping,,.. but if it just hesitates it could be lots of things ,,maybe a dodgy airflow meter..that can also make the car hesitate,,hope that helps you,,,,,

Volvo S60 Hesitation


Had a similar problem recently where I would press the accelerator almost to the floor before I got a response and when I ran the A/C it was worse. Also my car kept stalling out when at idle. Volvo dealerships are extremely expensive. I took mine to a Bosch service center (more of a mom & pop shop) and the price was more reasonable. The drivability (sp?) problem was the rear oxygen sensor for me. I also had a fuel pressure sensor and MAP (labeled as pressure sensor from Volvo) sensor replaced. The parts are expensive, but it fixed my issue. There is a front and rear oxygen sensor so it could be either. The parts are $219 each. The fuel pressure and MAP sensor are cheaper, but only by about $40. They are not hard to replace though. Once I had the rear oxygen sensor replaced the car was back to normal. I have a 2003 S60 with 97K miles.

I have the same issue - but notice its worse when you accelerate hard in 5th. I have changed all the ball joints, bearings and track rod ends but its still there. From trawling the various forums I'm starting to think I need to change the suspension arms and top strut bushes. 100K
