How to replace the water pump in my '99 Volvo S80non turbo engine?


You take the timing belt cover off (10 mm bolt and two side clips after the top cover is removed) and the water pump is just under the left cam sprocket. Your best shot is to do a complete timing belt kit (the water pump comes with the kit).

You need to see your specialist now. an overheating car (especially a turbo) will cost a lot of money if it gets too hot, leave this to the experts.

My 2002 volvo s60 fan blower motor stys on after i shut ignition switch off


Your Volvo does not have have a problem at all. The feature is what is known as a 'turbo timer' and is an important part of most turbocharged vehicles such as yours.

Your volvo is powered by a 5 cyclinder 2.4 liter engine that is turbocharged. Which means the engine works on the principle of 'forced induction' whcih helps it make more power.

A turbo like yours has a small impellor placed in the early section of the exhaust which is then spun up by heated and expanding exhaust vapors. this power is then transferred back to a 'charger or pump that actually forces additional air into the engine resulting in the ability to burn a more powerful mixture of air to fuel. Unlike your engine which even under very aggressive driving will only sustain forces at most approachign 9 thousand rpm, a turbo charger often spins with speeds in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of revolutions per minute. because of this they depend on a steady stream of engine oil to both lubricate and saturate the very rapidly spinning parts to keep them cool.

when the engine is suddenly shut off after a long or spirited drive the oil pump also stops, this could result in overheating and damage to the turbo.

As a result of this, Volvo was one of the fisrt companies to install a 'turbo timer' mechanism in its T models which as you noticed will continue to operate the fan for a pre calculated amount of time after you shut the car off in order to properly cool down the turbo.

Again your car has no problem whatsoever, this is a good thing and a nice feature to have whcih will definably lend itself to extending the overall life of your engine over time.

'90 Volvo 740 2.3l turbo water pump install instructons needed


Go to an auto supply store like PEP boys or Advance Auto, etc., and buy a Haynes Repair Manual for the 740. You may be able to consult one at your local library for free. Even if it doesn't cover your model year, the replacement instructions are pretty much the same for all years. in fact even a 240 Volvo manual would be essentially the same. Pay particular attention to the installation instructions....you have to slide the pump on, and then rotate it a few degrees clockwise to make the upper o-ring seal. Good luck!
