1996 volvo 850 turbo smoke coming out exhaust

I assume you mean exessive smoke?
White smoke = watersteam - usually cracked cylinderhead gasket
Replace gasket
Black / dark smoke preferrably visible when accelerator is let up after acceleration = oil - usually enters the cylinders through worn valve seals.
Repclace seals (can be done without lifting cylinder head)

check for compression on all cylinders if you ran the engine hot to long you may have blown the head gasket another way you would know is by filling up the radiator with water and then with the cap off turn the starter like if your going to start the engine if you see the water jump out of radiator then you have a blown gasket another way is by checking the oil if it looks like coffee with milk then the gasket is blown, I hope this information is useful good luck

If your timing belt belt broke, you have damaged the valves and the cylinder head will need to be removed and rebuilt, or replaced.

Head gasket replacement

I'm assuming you have the 5 cylinder engine. Changing the gasket is a pig of a job, especially it it's a T5. AFAIK you don't need a special tool to hold the camshafts in place (at least, I had no trouble) although it makes it easier when you replace them. I can't detail the process here as it's too involved but I will mention one point: On the T5, there is a support bracket between the exhaust manifold and the block which is *not mentioned* either in the official workshop manual or Haynes! I don't know if it's present on non-turbo models. If you have a T5 I would seriously consider getting a spare engine from a breaker rather than changing the gasket - it really is that bad :{{{
