My heat blower stays on even when car is off

Its suppose to do that. The fan will turn on every so often to circulate air in the cabin. Next time wait and see if it goes off after a bit. My car ( same car s80 ) does the same thing and its never caused a problem or drained the battery. Good luck!

Oil pump

it's not easy even for pro mechanic.
oil pan has to be droped , in order to repl. oil pump.
but I think you pump is ok , the problem is o-rings between oil pan and cyl. block , that's were you loosing oil pressure , which is again - oil pan has to come out.
Can't be done by a careful rookie.

How often does a 1999 s80 need a major service\cambelt ? cant find this out from volvo !! thanking you in advance, rod.

Unless something has happened to misalign the engine, most of these belts last from 5 to 10 years easily, some the life of the engine!

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.
