Hello there
No, you do need to remove the engine but it is a lot of wrenching to do this...

How to replace the water pump in my '99 Volvo S80non turbo engine?


You take the timing belt cover off (10 mm bolt and two side clips after the top cover is removed) and the water pump is just under the left cam sprocket. Your best shot is to do a complete timing belt kit (the water pump comes with the kit).

My 96 tt 993 is accumulating oil in the intercooler and then spiling down to the left side onto the engine, is there an easy fix to this problem?


If oil is accumulting inside the inetercooler, it means that the turbo-shaft seal is leaking causing oil to by pass in to the intake system, then through to your intercooler. A quick check to see if this is a fault, remove the hose/piping from the turbo the intercooler and place a piece of white paper over the hole at the turbo where the air is dispelled. Run the engine for a few minutes and if you notice any oil occuring/building up on the white papaer, then it is the turbo seal. This method is used on everything from jetskis to dump trucks. If no oil is present then the oil leak will be coming from somewhere else on the engine, and being sucked in through to the top of the intercooler. May have to remove it to see where any other leaks are coming from.

Check engine light with P1330. 156,000 miles, regular maintenance and no issues with car's performance


P1330 CVVT Solenoid or is the Camshaft Actuator opening period which is too long.The Camshaft Reset Valve was actually quite easy and quick to replace (well less than 1 hours if one know what their doing). It is located under the Timing Belt cover/camshaft pulley. To gain access, you have to move the black plastic turbo pipes a bit out of the way. This requires removing the two turbo pipe screws closest to the radiator,and one turbo pipe screw mounted at the center of the turbo piping (it screws into a long metal clip on top of the piping). Then remove the hard rubber hose that connects to the turbo pipe closest to the windshield washer reservoir. The rubber tubing is fastened to the turbo pipe by a standard screw-type hose clamp. Pop off that rubber hose with a bit of effort. I would not try to pry it off, because you might break the plastic turbo pipe. Just use your hands and be 'persuasive'.
(If you have a non-turbo 2.9L, then the above two paragraphs don't apply.) There is no need to remove the long black plastic cover that covers the engine horizontally. You only have to remove the two Torx fasteners and two spring clips on the actual Timing Belt cover. Since the turbo piping is now loose, you can move it a bit out of the way to gain access to the two torx fasteners, then pop the spring clips and remove the Timing Belt cover.The Camshaft Reset Valve is at the top left under the Timing Belt cover. It is held in place by 4 bolts and has an electrical connector that also needs to be removed. Try to get the same unit with the same wiring, the new 'improved' unit looks slightly different and any requires cutting off the old connector on the engine harness and splicing in the new unit.
