Im trying to replace camshaft gear on the 2001 S40 1.9l that was removed before the camshafts were locked down in synchro are there timing indicators on the back of the camshafts


There are DOWLS on the Front of the Camshaft. You have to have them LOCKED in the REAR before you put the belt back on or you will never get it right., These have a Variable Valve adjustment (and they cause issues. Additionally, the REAR Camshaft SEAL goes bad on this vehicle

Took old camshaft gear off. Gear itself did not have and dowl pins or anything to ensure proper placement when replacing it. Put new one on and secured. Now can't get car to time right. Any...


To be honest you may end up taking this car to a dealership to have the timing set. Anytime you mess with timing belt/chain cam gears on a volvo, you need a special Volvo tool to lock the cams down. This is why alot of independent shops will not service the timing belts on a volvo. But i will try to explain this a little to you. If you are lucky the marks will be there. On the top cover after pulling off the front cover there are notches in the black cover and in the gears. On the crank there are marks on two of the high spots and in between that is TDC. Set the cam gears up and then look down to identify the marks on the crank gear I hope this helps

Diagram timing belt for car 1999 volvo S70


You need special tools to do this, you need a Cam Lock/Crank Lock set and a Pulley Block to hold the Variable Exhaust Cam Timing. Do not attempt to do this with out those tools. I have done it but it was 5 times the work and there is no guarantee of getting that Variable timing correct.

How to get gears in time after replacing timing belt in 940 volvo 4 cyl if no markings after 1 and only top gear?


you dont will have to be taken to a shop,
there they have the right tools and knollage to handle that,

most engine are interferance engines-
if engine is turned over with belt off the all valves will be bent- resulting in costly repair-
so disconnect the battery before it is towed.

I am replacing the timing belt on a 93 volvo 940 with 4 cly single overhesd cam no tubo. Where does the cam's timing mark line up? I don not have a repair manual for this.


I replaced mine on the same car.  I borrowed the NAPA timing belt book to get the timing marks.  There are three that need to be aligned.  I would suggest going to NAPA to buy the belt ($25) and while there, ask to see that book so you can write down the timing marks.  The mark on the crank shaft gear is on the inside of the gear, while the cam gear is on the outside of the gear.  Or, you could just buy the book.  It's still a lot cheaper than paying someone to replace the belt.
