Sounds like a possible fuel problem to me. There should be a schraeder valve somewhere on the fuel rail. After turning key to on, or cranking it for a bit, unscrew the cover cap and take a real small screw drive and punch the center valve (looks like a small tire air valve). It should spurt out pretty good so watch your eyes. If it's not building pressure, fuel will come out at a poor dribble or hardly come out at all which would indicate a bad fuel pump or extremely clogged fuel filter. Since it does crank eventually it sounds like the ignition system is working, so I'd lean toward researching the fuel issue first since it sounds like it may be taking a while for the pump to build enough pressure to pop the injectors.

I just changed timing belt on 82 volvo turbo, it starts and dies, if i excelerate it will keep going, otherwise it dies

no you check the tip of the rotor lines up with the edge of the cutout on your distributor body .that is the basic adjustment. you move the distributor very small amounts when adjusting the dwell angle when you use the timing light.

2001 vovlo v7o xc trouble codes p0014 and p1237

DTC P1014 - B Camshaft Position - Timing Over-Advanced or System Performance (Bank 1).
At engine start-up the control module checks that the camshaft is in the correct position in relation to the crankshaft. Diagnostic trouble code (DTC) ECM-62 is stored if the control module detects the camshaft in an incorrect position on start up.

Possible source:
Camshaft cogs incorrectly seated
Incorrectly installed camshaft pulley
Contact resistance in the terminals.

Malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) lit
The engine misfires.

DTC P1237 - Turbo Control Valve
Looks like the turbo is not producing enough boost. Check the waste gate hoses and the waste gate itself to see if its bound up. If the waste gate is working right, I would suspect a bad turbo.

This is an advanced level repair. You may want to have Volvo do the diagnostics on this one. Your code is for low turbo boost pressure. The waste gate is a big silver actuator on the turbo. It has vacuum hoses going to it. See if they are all hooked up. Also see if you can move the lever that the actuator pushes on. If its jammed that may be your problem.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i tune and time my turbo on a 2001 volvo s60 t5 2.3L

A 2001 is difficult to power-up. Depending on your budget I would do a high flow intake and exaust. If it is an LPT you can always put in a bigger turbo with a higher flow. If it is an LPT look for a turbo beginning TD014. The next numbers are the different performances e.g. 18T 19T. After that get a custom tune flashed into your computer. If it is an LPT, a 19T with these mods can increase the power to almost 300hp.
