I replace timing tensioner and now car will not start, whats wrong why will it not crank 2000 s70 volvo


Check to make sure the car is in time. I have found with my 98 Volvo V70 that if the timing is off just a couple of teeth the car will crank but not come to a full start.

How to know if timing belt on volvo t6 needs to be replaced if dealer stamps and bills don't show it. The 105 page was stamped.


The timing belt should have been replaced at the 105K service. Someone should look at the timing belt to determine the condition. However, if you have any doubts, you should replace it to be on the safe side. Also replace the mechanical tensioner.

99 Volvo S80 water pump replacement


if this helps.. I had the 1998 model S70. the water pump was driven by the timing belt. you had to take the timing belt off just to replace the water pump. it was just a simple bolt on replacement. the only difficult issue is resetting the hydraulic tensioner on the timing belt. the hydraulic tensioner has to be completely taken off and compressed VERY SLOWLY in a vise. then insert a very hard drill bit or (special volvo tool) into a keeper hole, reinstall hydraulic tensioner onto car and reinstall timing belt.very quickly remove drill bit from keeper hole in tensioner and the tensioner snaps back out to put tension on belt. and you are done.

I havent looked at that car you mention but since you worded it like you did , it reminds me of the second volvo I had (98 model). the water pump was located behind the timing belt cover and actually driven be the timing belt... really. I thought this was of a poor design myself. I bet yours is the same. good luck replacing the water pump. the volvo was one BIG pain in the ...........

98 volvo v-70 timing belt & struts


The V70 naturally aspirated engine in 1998 is an interference engine, which means if your timing belt breaks, you will bend every intake valve in the engine, necessitating a valve job at the very least; around $5K. As soon as you buy the car, spend the $500 to replace the belt, the idler pulleys, the adjustment pulley, and the water pump. Change your thermostat at the same time.

Look at the motor mounts, they are likely broken, check your constant-velocity joints for play (you'll feel a 'wobble' on acceleration through a turn), and you can get aftermarket delrin bushings for the struts, as long as they're not leaking. Have your mechanic inspect and replace the headlamp sockets (they get burnt and cause rapid failure of headlight bulbs). Whenever you do brakes have the mechanic clean, inspect, and electrically test the ABS wheel sensors.

Other than that, a nice solid car.
