Please take a picture of where you think the noise is coming from. Meanwhile your local dealer will gladly take a little 'look' and give you a better idea than I can from here. If you can video the engine with the hood up - and put it on YOU TUBE then post the link here. I will give you a much better answer.
Meanwhile - spray the belts with plain water just before you start the engine. Then start the car and spray more on each belt. If you hear a change - eitther tighten that belt or change it out. Remember just because it is a new belt doesn't make it good. Some times mechanics accidentally over stretch the belt on the first install. Not often but it does happen.

Most likely a frost plug, you may need a mirror to see it.
The head is not likely to just leak from the back, check for steam from the exhaust when hot.

VOLVO s90 1997 clicking noise from wheel area


If it happens only on turns then its the outer axle cv joint.. If it happens all the time probably something stuck in a tire. Either way have the suspension visually inspected by a technician as soon as possible.

My volvo 1998 s90 has a miss when it heats up.


Start with getting the fault codes checked! My guess is a bad ignition coil or a vacuum leak, but they are guesses. A little diagnosis is required before replacing any parts!
