Timing marks set to get car back in timing so it can start

2000 volvo S40. Where are the timing marks? What/Where are the timing marks to be set? I have changed the timing belt and put a lock on the cam gears so it could not go out of time. After putting it all back together it will not start but turns over good. What might be preventing the engine form starting?

Take out number one sparkplug, take the cam cover off. turn the engine of with a spanner on the bottom pulley. make sure number one piston is at TDC, now check to see if the inlet&outlet valves are close. and the piston is all the way at the top, do this with a long screwdriver to make sure it is.
if everything ok, then it will be a ignition problem.

Volvo s40 timing


Ignition timing is controlled by the engine management computer and is not adjustable. Valve timing is set at a fixed position when the timing belt is replaced and not adjustable.

I need cam timing settings for a volvo s40 2006


The timing marks on the cam gears align with the timing marks in the rear timing cover. The timing mark on the crank gear aligns with the timing mark on the oil pump assembly.
The tensioner is set by rotating the tensioner clockwise until the holes in the tabs on the left side of the tensioner are aligned, then tighten the center bolt.

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
