2001 volvo v70 2.4 non turbo timing belt allignment marks

It is rather easy to see the top two cam allignment marks on the cam cover however I cannot see the lower crank mark. The gear hash marks on two seperate gears but what do these line up with? I replaced my belt and the car is running nicely however my fuel economy has gone down, I'm thinking I may be off a notch. Is it possible to be off and have the car still run smoothly?

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.

The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.

As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.

When you put the t-belt on...it is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.

Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.

After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.

Jetta 2001- timing belt broked and now im traing to get the engin on time


There is a very good chance you bent some valves when the belt broke. If it's a 1.8 turbo then definitely, 2.0 you have a small chance that it is ok. The marks are easy to see, one notch on the cam and one on the crank, the crank lines up to the line on the plastic cover that covers the t belt, the cam lines up to the plastic backing piece that is bolted down with the valve cover. Best of luck.

You will probably have to take your timing belt off, allign the marks, then put your belt back on. Had the same problem. That's what I had to do. They have to be alligned. Check your book though. I think all has to be at 12 o'clock but I am not 100% sure.

I hope you've solved the problem by now, but there are alignment marks on the crank shaft (top pulley), idler (lower side), and cam shaft (smaller, bottom pulley) which should be aligned with stationary marks on the timing belt rear cover.

The belt has marks that align with the aforementioned marks (lines). The double marks on the belt align with the camshaft marks and the single marks with the others.

Loosen the tensioner clamp (nut) to allow the spring loaded tensioner to press on the belt and retighten the nut.

Rotate the crank shaft (clockwise, probably two revolutions) and make sure the pulley marks realign to the marks on the cover (they don't have to realign with the marks on the belt).

Rotate the crank shaft a full revolution once the belt is on and check that alignment is preserved.

Periodically loosen and retension the tensioner nut (access through a hole in the cover) to ensure that tension is maintained as the belt relaxes.
