Http://www.swedishbricks.net/700900FAQ/Engine-Mechanical1.html is a link to the proceedure. I think I still have the service manual myself somewhere that shows how its done.
you have to scroll down a bit to find the valve adjustment info. I read thru it and it seems pretty acurate. I had the 1990 model B230FT engine in my first volvo. I hated giving that car to my mother in law. The guy who wrote the article is correct about the frequency of adjustment. I had 200K miles on mine and it still needed no valve adjustment and didnt burn oil. I loved maintaining that car... it was so easy to get to everything. I know that in the past you could get a shim kit from the dealer and when you bring it back you would only be charged for the shims you used.
good luck. hope this helps.

Valve regrind


on jeep?

sure , valve grind, vast ways to mess up.

are you taking the whole job or just the head job/?

head, pressure checked and warpage checked and corrected.

engine deck checked for warp, .002" max?

wrong head gasket,

china junk gaskets. from fleabay.

gasket upside down blocking oil holes.

reUsing TTY bolts, bad.

not checking compression first be fore first start

and then cold cranking it , no fuel pressure, to see if you have

top end oiling? if yes, its good, then kick the tires and light the fires.

Vacume hose diagram


64510fee-4cba-434c-8e76-78dd3cbb1b83.jpgNot sure of your engien size as you didn't say so I went with the most common enegine the 3.8 liter. Again I wasn't sure of what vacuum diagram you needed as the is vacuum for emissions, air conditioning and cruise control. the picture above is for emissions for the 3.8 liter engine. Hope this was what you were needing but if you have a different engine (305 or the 3.8 turbo) you can reply back here with what diagram you needed or the correct engine. Hope this helps...

Hi is it a hard job to replace gasket on a 1990 mazda 626 2ltr water pump


what gasket are you talking about the head gasket? if so its about a week to do the job typically cause have to take heads off and can figure run into multiple problems along the way and need a new valve cover gasket cause it will fall apart and a new water pump and new water pump gasket

I had white smoke from the tail pipeand getting hot ... I had the heads done , gasket valve . and resurfising. when I got the saab back ,I drove it about 49 miles started driving slugish , bufs of black...


Sounds to me like they did a bad head job. No pun intended. lol, White smoke indicates moisture in exhaust but black smoke indicates a oil leak. I would take it back and have them check the job they did. If the car is over heating then the head gaskets are pretty much blown.

2001 Volvo s40 oil leaking in turbo, smokes white smoke and turbo not kicking in. I have a new head, timing belt waterpump, oxygen sens. valve job, cam pulley all changed. It is still smoking and no turbo....


Water in combustion chamber makes white smoke--suspect that the head gasket is leaking water into the chamber. If oil leaking around turbo, it may have a bad bearing and bad oil seal. Check waste gate valve and control.
