This noise is being caused by the camshaft followers, they are like the lifters in older cars, they are most likely worn out. This assumes the oil pressure is withing specs.

2003 Volvo S40 making a tap. tap, tap, silent (repeated continually) while the engine is running. Noise appears to be coming from the top of the engine. Engine has been recently preplaced but the tap...


Please check to see if the slapping noise is from the belts, the idler , the water pump or alternator. Also check if this is the tappets or the valves, if so this might require a check up after removing the valve door covers. Check for oil pump pressure and also for settings of the valves.

How do i find TDC when set the timing marks on 1990 volvo 740gl


if you know the firing order of the engine and also the position of the no.1 cylinder you are off to a good start.
Remove the plug on the no.1 cylinder and turn the engine until the piston starts coming up on compression stroke, you can fing out if it is on compression stroke by placing your finger or thumb over the spark plug hole, you will feel the pressure under your thumb or finger as the piston starts to come up the bore.
when you can feel that pressure you can remove your thumb etc and stick a medium size screwdriver into the hole making sure you hold it from falling into the cylinder, rest the end of the driver on top of the piston and turn the engine slowly by hand only, (not by the starter) until the piston has come up to the top of the cylinder, now have a look at the harmonic balancer on the end of the crankshaft, there should be markings on it and one marking will have a "0" with TDC above it, line that mark up with the pointer and that will be top dead center

Here is all the tech info for removing and replacing....hope this helps you:

4-Cylinder Engine
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Right hand engine cover
    • Cover over the right headlamp
    • Accessory drive belt
    • Front timing cover
    • Servo reservoir
  3. Position Volvo lifting beam 999 5006 or equivalent slightly in front of the front lifting eyelet for the engine. Use Volvo lifting arm 999 5383 or equivalent and Volvo lifting hook 999 5460 or equivalent to raise the front of the engine a few millimeters.
  4. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Right-hand engine mount
    • Right front wheel
  5. Turn the crankshaft until the markings on the crankshaft and camshaft pulley correspond. Turn the crankshaft a further 1/4 turn clockwise and then back again until the markings correspond. The markings are illustrated. Remove the upper timing cover.
  6. Slacken off the center screw for the belt tensioner slightly.
  7. Turn the tensioner clockwise to 10 o'clock.
  8. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Air baffles
    • Lower belt cover
    • Timing belt


To install:
  1. Turn all the pulleys listening for bearing noise. Check to see that the contact surfaces are clean and smooth. If the tensioner pulley lever or idler is seized, replace it.
  2. If replacing with a new idler pulley, tighten to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm).
  3. If replacing tension pulley, screw into place using the center bolt by hand. Ensure that the tensioner fork is centered over the cylinder block rib. Ensure that the Allen hole on the eccentric is at "10 o'clock".
  4. Install the timing belt in the following order:
    1. Around the crankshaft sprocket
    2. Around the idler pulley
    3. Around the camshaft sprockets
    4. Around the water pump
    5. Onto the belt tensioner
  5. Carefully turn the crankshaft clockwise until the timing belt is tensioned. The belt must be tensioned between the intake camshaft pulley, the idler pulley and the crankshaft
  6. Hold the belt tensioner center screw secure. Turn the belt tensioner eccentric counter-clockwise until the tensioner indicator passes the marked position.
  7. Then turn the eccentric back so that the indicator reaches the marked position in the center of the window and tighten the center bolt to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  8. Press the belt to check that the indicator on the tensioner moves easily.
  9. Install or connect the following:
    • Lower belt guard
    • Air baffles
    • Upper timing cover
  10. Turn the crankshaft two turns. Check that the markings on the crankshaft and camshaft pulley correspond.
NOTE Check that the indicator on the belt tensioner is within the marked area.

  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Lower timing cover
    • Front timing cover and tighten to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm)
    • Accessory drive belt
    • Engine mount and tighten to 49 ft. lbs. (67 Nm)
    • Servo reservoir. Tighten bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).
    • Front wheel
    • Right hand engine cover
    • Cover over the right headlamp

Location and how to get to Spark-Plugs on Volvo 2000 GTL , I've removed both Black Plastic covers on top of engine and do not recognise anything... Please advise ... Thankx. Kelly


There are 5 ignition coils above each plug, remove the 2 bolts for each coil, pull up on the coil and you'll see the plug underneath, replace the plugs. Make sure you mark the coils before you remove them so they go back in the same place.
