Question about 1996 Volvo 960
The timing belt tention pulley failed at about 20mph. Looks like an easy fix, but after all i have read, it sounds like the motor may be toast? What do you think?
The timing belt on my '94 960 recently broke when I started up the car. Since it's an interference engine, odds are that damage was done to the valves. Luckily I only damaged two. There's a chance it'll work if you just replace the belt but it's unlikely. It gets really expensive to fix otherwise (luckily I know people).

50-50 chance. You'll have to re-install belt, align marks & crank it over & test compression before you'll know for sure.
