Volvo recommends for Volvo S80, changing the timing belt every 105,000 miles. Needless to say, they are pretty religious about this now.
The B20, B21, B23, and B230 engines are non-interference engines, meaning that the camshaft can be rotated independently of the crankshaft and no damage will result to the engine. That is, if the timing belt breaks, the valves will not hit the pistons; the engine will simply stop.
On the other hand, the B234 16-valve engines and any of the other Volvo multi valve engines are interference engines. Loss of the timing belt in these engines will result in severe or fatal engine damage.
Your car might be fitted with:
2.8L (VIN 90, 6th & 7th digit, B6284T eng, turbo)
2.9L (VIN 94, 6th & 7th digit, B6294S eng)

How to replace timeing belt on 850 volvo car


If the belt does break it can bend the valves causing major damage. This is not a do it yourself kinda thing. There are manuals available at your local part store but it is a big job. I would recommend if you are not a veteran mechanic you hunt and find a shop that will give you a good price a warranty.

Does the volvo 2000 s40 have a timeing belt or timeing chain?


The 1.9 Liter has a cam belt which MUST be replaced at 105,000 miles. Also replace the water pump which is driven by the cam belt to save labor costs later one. This is an INTERFERENCE engine and as such if the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage. Therefore do not neglect this service.

How do i set the timing on my s 80 volvo 5 cyl took off head replaced gasket and timing gears moved im afraid to put the belt back on in fear the cams are not in the correct place and some real damage...


They have marks on them and they have to be set to the number one cylinder in the compression stroke and the two marks must face each other and when putting on the timing chain or belt always take the play out of the cams with two closed end sockets or the rented alignment tool.

Just Bought a 1990 Volvo 240GL Auto 2L


Hallo Markmac945,

I've been a Volvo Service worker for about a year and seen lot of these Volvo's. It's true that if the timingsbelt snaps the engine wil be ruined. It would be wise (seen that the service history isn't there) to change the belt if your not sure it happend. I life in the Netherland and because we have cars with a KM-dile, i don't know if this is any help but; timings belts in Europe sould be changed at 120.000 KM. How manny miles that is, well I just don't know. The engine in your Volvo is an B21 or B23. Both timing belts have to be changed at 120.000KM. But for the price (being a easy timing belt change) I sure change the timing belt. Than you'll be sure that everything is in good order.

I have a 2000 S40 Volvo with 101,000 miles. I have not replaced the timing belt yet. I know it is recommended earlier than this, but what is your experience?


if that belt breaks and you have an interference engine the valve can be damaged because the piston comes up and hits the valve that is left open when belt breaks
