SOURCE: Replace timing belt on Volvo S60

There is no room for error...... Zero clearance. If off one tooth it can and will bend valves. if you are one that just feels the need to get alittle dirty or just can't pay for the service, then get out your Haynes out and turn to .....Tune up, and look at replacing timming belt. Get a cam gear tool that locks them into place so as that they will not move when u have them lined up. make sure they are lined up with marks as said in book. then make sure crank as well as all marks are lined up acordingly. make sure belt marks are lined up with everything. i would reccomend using a volvo belt though cause it will have all the marks on it.However other company's make good quality belts also at a fraction of the price. So it is really up to you.
Good thing when doing timming belt is to also change out your timming belt tensioner. YES do this it will save you a engine in the long run. it is a moving part that will go bad, it will freeze up and snap timming belt. rip out teeth in thebelt and bend valves. So as a gen rule...When you change timming belt, Change belt tensioner at same time since you cant just change tensioner without changing or getting timming belt off. Remember to use your HAYNES. It is your friend and will save you money in the long run. Good luck... Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I need to replace the alternator in a 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan

Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench. Remove the windshield wiper module for 3.0 L and smaller engines or the right front lower splash shield for engines larger than 3.0 L. Remove the accessory beltdrive with a socket wrench. You will also need to remove the lower bolt and wiring harness from the oil dipstick tube with a socket wrench if you have an engine larger than 3.0 L.
Take the mounting bolts off of the alternator with a socket wrench and disconnect the alternator's electrical harness. This will allow you to remove the alternator assembly.

Install the new alternator assembly and connect the electrical harness. Tighten the mounting bolts to 40 foot pounds with a torque wrench and install the accessory drive belt. You will also need to install the lower bolt and wiring harness from the oil dipstick tube with a socket wrench if your engine is larger than   3.0 L.

Connect the windshield wiper module or right front lower splash shield as required. Connect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench.

Good luck and hope this helps.
I have heard the easiest way to remove the alternator is to remove the exhaust manifold. It will cost about $15.00 or so for a new manifold gasket but it is supposed to create enough room to be able to swap it without the hassle of removing alot of parts.

SOURCE: check engine light code PO442

You likely won't notice any drivability problems. P0442 indicates a fuel vapor leak in the EVAP control system. It means a very small leak has been detected. In fact, the leak can be from a hole as small as 0.04" in diameter. 
The (EVAP) emission control system prevents the escape of fuel vapors from a vehicle's fuel system. Fuel vapors are routed by hoses to a charcoal canister for storage.
Later, when the engine is running a purge control valve opens allowing intake vacuum to siphon the fuel vapors into the engine.

With a P0442, the most common repair is to Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back. Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses.

Good luck and hope this helps

How do you remove outside handle on driver's door on 2012 s60


On a S60, 2012, (drivers door) you first remove the plastic cover in under which you find the lock (with keyhole).
secondly, open the door and remove the 15 mm diameter plastic cover near the handle. Insert a long torx scrwdriver(T25 ?) in the
opening and while keeping the door handle "open" (this gives you the possibility to easily replace the handle later) Turn the torx until it stops
(do not use much force). Now you can pull out the metallic lock, peer
out the small white plastic under the door handle and pull out the handle. Do not turn the torx before you have replaced the handle.

In the case of back door, you start by finding the hole for the torx under the doors rubber sealing near the door handle.

How do I replace the water pump on my 1997 Plymoth Grand Voyager it looks fairly simple


First remove the serp. belt, then drain your engine coolant. now unblot the waterpump, there isn't going to be much clearance between the body and the engine to remove so there are slotted holes that once the pulley is unbolted it will turn and slide closer to the pump. and once the pump is unbolted you will have to try and pry the engine over while sliding the unit out. You are probably going to need assistance. and be careful not to slip when installing the new pump because the blades on the back of the pump are likely to be plastic and will break if the motor swings back towards the body with the pump 1/2 way in.
