How often does the timing belt have to be changed on a 2004 V40 1.9 4cyl?


Do it at 60,000 miles, it is cheaper than a damaged engine-Volvo had different recommendations:
All models - 1999MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner every 80,000 miles or 8 years.
1,6/1,8/2,0 - 2000-01MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner at the following intervals:
90,000 miles/8 years.
186,000 miles/16 years.
1,9T/2,0T - 2000MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner at the following intervals:
66,000 miles/6 years.
138,000 miles/12 years.
210,000 miles/18 years.
2,0T - 2001MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner at the following intervals:
90,000 miles/8 years.
186,000 miles/16 years.
All models - 2002MY : Replacement of timing belt and tensioner every 96,000 miles or 8 years.
The previous use and service history of the vehicle must always be taken into account.

Timing belt replacement frequency


error definitely some issues with the early six-cylinder timing belts. There were some updates, including a dampener for one of the cams. See if you can get copies of the service bulletins for your engine. I think the belt may also be somewhat wider on the later engines. DO NOT use the later interval.

Go to www.FCPgroton.com and enter your make and year, then check under timing components. They sale a few different kits for this job. I would recommend doing the timimg belt, idler pulley, tensioner, water pump at serpentine belt at a minimum. you can check and see if you need to do the cam seals also one of their kits includes all these. I would only do those if they were leaking.

98 volvo v-70 timing belt & struts


The V70 naturally aspirated engine in 1998 is an interference engine, which means if your timing belt breaks, you will bend every intake valve in the engine, necessitating a valve job at the very least; around $5K. As soon as you buy the car, spend the $500 to replace the belt, the idler pulleys, the adjustment pulley, and the water pump. Change your thermostat at the same time.

Look at the motor mounts, they are likely broken, check your constant-velocity joints for play (you'll feel a 'wobble' on acceleration through a turn), and you can get aftermarket delrin bushings for the struts, as long as they're not leaking. Have your mechanic inspect and replace the headlamp sockets (they get burnt and cause rapid failure of headlight bulbs). Whenever you do brakes have the mechanic clean, inspect, and electrically test the ABS wheel sensors.

Other than that, a nice solid car.

Timing belts


You need to change the timing belt at every 100,000 interval. I too own a 1999 S40 I still have 20,000km's to go however I would suggest you don't wait the 100,000, break downs are a drag. MCM
