Question about 2002 Volvo S60

1 Answer

Pouring money into my '02 S60 AWD is making me poor!

I need advice, I bought my Volvo used at 58K and LOVE it. However, in less then a year I have spent $3400 on 4 new tires, ball joints, power steering hose and pump and control arm. I really need someone to be straight with me...is this what I should expect from now on? I either need to budget for painfully high repairs or sell my lovely car!

The fun has only begun my freind. My 2002 Volvo S60 80,000 miles has cost me a over $2500 in repairs over the past year and right now it is stuck in park in my driveway after just getting it back from the dealership yesterday for the same problem. Sell you Volvo before it drains your bank account and patience.

Hello I have a 2002, S60 AWD. It has done 108,000kms. I have just taken it for a 15,000km service as the warning sign came up recommending one. ( I do not have a trouble with that). I noticed that the...


yes they should be able to reset the maint. reminder from 15k to 10k.only the volvo dealer can though.ask the mechanic why he recomends changing it. it could be he has reason to suspect extreme use or the shops pockets need more money.i personaly would stay with the 15k unless you do alot of short trip driving or extreme dust enviroment

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.

VOLVO S60 2004 D5 3RD GEAR GEARBOX CRUNCH


Sounds as if a synchronizer is going out in 3rd gear, or 3rd gear maybe stripped. I would get it checked by a tranny (transmission) shop before it ended up costing you more money. There is a possibility that there may be some shavings on that gear as well, which would just need cleaned.
