You have to change the timing belt after 40000 miles.

You need to change the timing belt at every 100,000 interval. I too own a 1999 S40 I still have 20,000km's to go however I would suggest you don't wait the 100,000, break downs are a drag. MCM

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

i would definitely have the transmission serviced, as for the timing belt, this belt COULD last forever or it COULD break tomorrow, this is just one of them things you can never tell, if the belt does break it could cause more damsge to the engine than just the belt breaking, i guess one would also have to consider how much they have to spend on it, if money is'nt the issue i would probably do both, but definitely have the transmission serviced

How often does the timing belt have to be changed on a 2004 V40 1.9 4cyl?


Do it at 60,000 miles, it is cheaper than a damaged engine-Volvo had different recommendations:
All models - 1999MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner every 80,000 miles or 8 years.
1,6/1,8/2,0 - 2000-01MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner at the following intervals:
90,000 miles/8 years.
186,000 miles/16 years.
1,9T/2,0T - 2000MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner at the following intervals:
66,000 miles/6 years.
138,000 miles/12 years.
210,000 miles/18 years.
2,0T - 2001MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner at the following intervals:
90,000 miles/8 years.
186,000 miles/16 years.
All models - 2002MY : Replacement of timing belt and tensioner every 96,000 miles or 8 years.
The previous use and service history of the vehicle must always be taken into account.

Timing belt felll off on highway,will there be a lot of damage 2000 volvos-80


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)

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?

Timing belt replacement frequency


error definitely some issues with the early six-cylinder timing belts. There were some updates, including a dampener for one of the cams. See if you can get copies of the service bulletins for your engine. I think the belt may also be somewhat wider on the later engines. DO NOT use the later interval.
