2001 S60 timing belt

I have 88000 and I'm told that I may have to replace my timing belt.  I was given an rough estimate of $900. Does this sound right?
I am selling the car in a month and I can't afford to fix.  Should it hold out for another month?
Thanks

Yes it is due at 105K. But that depends also on where you live and how often you drive.

I have seen Volvos with 120K that the timing belt didn't show severe signs of attention needed...and also I have seen others with 80K that were ready to snap at any given time.

As for the price...I've seen only the T6 engine with a quote of about 800 bucks. S60s usually around 700.

According to scheduled maintenance, your car should be due for a timing belt at 105,000 miles. Most dealers usually charge about $500. Unless you are having running problems, your car should hold out for another month.

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.

My vovlvo s60 t. (2001) has rough idling after auto choke has switched off, also sometimes stalls at junctions and roundabouts ect. i was told it was the air flow mass meter which i have just replaced, but...


I'm not 100% on this, but my 940 was doing the same thing...it turned out to be the injection canister was carboned up and needed cleaning...it took the mechanic 20 minutes and the problem was solved....also, you might want to check the crankshaft positioning sensor, if its malfunctioning, your car will shut off, but will restart after about 20 seconds.

S60 Auto my problem is the engine surges when at idle


Hi, I had a similar problem. It's caused by the throttle position sensor. Your car may also go into reduced performance a.k.a. 'limp mode' after a while. Disconnect the negative terminal (-) on your battery overnight and reconnect it. It sorted out my problem.

Whirring noise


HELLO, I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. I WENT TO THE DEALER AND WHEN THE CAR WAS MAKING THAT WHIRLING SOUND, HE UNSCREWED THE OIL CAP AT THAT MOMENT AND THE NOISE WAS GONE. IT WAS THE PCV VALVE AND THE HOUSING(DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT IS) THAT NEEDED REPLACING. SO TRY UNSCREWING THE OIL CAP WHEN THE NOISE IS PRESENT. IF IT GOES AWAY THEN YOU HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. THE PCV VALVE NEEDS REPLACEMENT. IF YOU CAN GET A GOOD, TRUSTING MECHANIC THAT CAN DO THIS FOR LESS THAN 350.00, YOUR GOOD. THE DEALER CHARGED ME 650.00 FOR THIS. GOOD LUCK.

2001 Toyota camry 2.2 L 4 cyl engine timming belt replacement


The 2001 Camry 2.2 has a timing belt.
Recommended change interval is 90,000 miles.
There is no good reason for putting the replacement off, as the belt may be stretched slightly when it nears the rec replace interval, and your mileage may suffer because the engine is not in proper "time".
If the belt jumps time or breaks, it will NOT damage the valves.
