    The car turns over, but does not sound like it is getting fire.

  • Mike Apr 15, 2013

    I dont think that the timing belt would have slipped or jumped a couple of teeth. I guess I am not sure how the timing belt would have anything to do with the drive belt tensioner. The battery I went down and tried a new battery and the same thing happened . It would turn over but nothing else.

  • Mike Apr 15, 2013

    I still have not sort out the problem, Sorry for the confusion. I did make sure that the timing belt is in tact. The fan or drive belt is turning and feels tight. But still will not start.

  • Mike Apr 17, 2013

    I have somewhat narrowed it down to the spark plugs are not firing. All of the spark plugs! If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Well firstly if your wife drove the car for 5 miles with the tensioner broken, then the belt being lose will have slipped a couple of teeth. Did you set the camshaft and crank alignment marks correctly before you fitted the new tensioner? If you did and it still won't start then that means that you have one or two bent valve's in the cylinder head.You will have to remove the cylinder head and replace those valves or that car will never start again.

    Would the the drive belt affect the timing belt?

  • Claude Apr 15, 2013

    My apologies I have misunderstood your term the drive belt, as here in my country we know the belt that you are referring to as the fan belt(The one that drives the alternator, water pump and power steering etc.) If it is that and you still haven't sorted out the problem please let me know

  • Claude Apr 15, 2013

    Timing belt is usually separate from the drive belt, but there are some different models and makes that do come out with one complete belt to drive all the components and some drive the water pump, camshaft, and crank pully only (As in most late models made by Volkswagen) As in Volvo, well, they have followed suit on their late models.Your best bet is to examine the route of the drivebelt to see what components it drives and let me know as it could possibly be that the water pump was not working correctly due to the slack tension, thus causing the engine to overheat. Another possibility is that you might have accidently ripped of an electrical wire connection to the distributor or coil while you were working within the compacty area of the engine. Check for those possibilities.

  • Mike Apr 17, 2013

    Well I have narowed it down it the spark plugs are not firing. All of them. If anyone has any idea, please let me know.

  • Claude Apr 17, 2013

    Hi, I need to know what model series your Volvo is,Is it one of the following?...2ltr, 2ltr turbo,2.3 ltr, 2.3 ltr turbo, 2.5 .. (2.5-20 valve,) 2.5 TDI, or a 2.5 turbo? The belt that you are referring to as the drive belt is actually known as the serpentine or auxillary drive belt, which drives the alternator, compressor, power steering pump, turbo (and on some occasions the water pump which I mentioned earlier) This is why I need to know exactly what series of S70 you have in order to assist you ascertively.. In some series the water pump is driven with the timing belt whereas others the serpentine belt.Let me know.

  • Mike Apr 18, 2013

    It is a 2.4 ltr Turbo AWD

  • Claude Apr 18, 2013

    You're safe, the water pump is driven by the timing belt. No engine damage! When you fitted the new belt maybe the battery ran flat as a result of the alternator not turning, or maybe you removed the battery to charge it up. If so you will have to have the computer reset as there will be no power to the ECM thereby no fire at the plugs. It's highly unlikely that any other component would have broken down since you fitted the new belt as the engine never fired up in order to create any more problems. thus my final conclusion is the computer box to be reset. What you can do is unplug the main harness from the computer box ,charge up the battery and turn the engine a couple of times (while the computer is unplugged) then refit the plug onto the computer and try starting it again. If no luck then you will have to take it to Volvo agents to assist you.A reminder again to double check for any loose wires that you might have accidently pulled off while working in the engine compartment or the belt might have knocked off a wire near or on the alternator at the precise moment that your wife switched off the car. I hope you win.and best of luck

  • Mike Apr 18, 2013

    I will give it a try, thanks

    does this has a distrbrutor cap if it does see if it turns when you spin the engine if it dosent let me rephrase that do a commpression check on each cylnder you should have at least 110 lbs of compression on each cylnder if you dont have any commpression then you have something wrong with the head i you have only one drive belt and it runs the w pump then the car got overheated and blew a head gasket

  • Mike Apr 18, 2013

    I tried new batteries, it turns over the same way. Timing is good. Commpression I have not checked yet because I spark plugs are not firing.

  • Mike Apr 18, 2013

    The car is fuel injection. The coils or coil is not allowing the spark plugs to fire.

SOURCE: timing belt tensioner broke

The only issue is if the valves were bent as this is an interference motor. There is no scheduled replacement of the tensioner. I would have the motor pressure tested before replacing the tensioner to make sure nothing else was affected when the tensioner broke.

SOURCE: The serpentine belt broke replaced it and i broke

I had this problem, it turned out that A/C compressor had seized and wouldn't turn, because the compressor was stuck it would rip up the new belt- so you can one of two things;

replace the compressor and belt

or
get a shorter serpentine belt and bypass the A/C compressor- there are several sites that show you how to route this.- i did this being a college student, not having A/C isn't that bad

SOURCE: How do i release the tension belt ... cant seem to

Here's the procedure on how to release and replace the tension belt of your car.

Step 1

  • Open the hood on the Volvo S-60 and find the serpentine-belt routing diagram. The diagram should be attached to the top of the fan shroud that covers the radiator. If not, draw out the exact routing method of the serpentine belt around each pulley with a pen and a piece of paper.
  • Step 2 Locate the serpentine-belt tensioner that is in the very center of the engine. The tensioner will have a square bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 3 Slide the open end of the 5/8-wrench onto the square bolt head in the center of the belt-tensioner pulley. Turn the tensioner pulley counterclockwise and slide the serpentine belt off of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 4 Remove the serpentine belt from the other pulleys and pull the belt out of the engine compartment.
  • Step 5 Slide the new serpentine belt into the engine compartment and around the crankshaft pulley.
  • Step 6 Route the new serpentine belt around each pulley. Turn the belt-tensioner pulley counterclockwise again and slide the serpentine belt around the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner and it will tighten the belt around the pulleys. Look over the belt to ensure that it is inside of each pulley.
  • Step 7 Crank the S-60 and look over the serpentine belt with the motor running. Let the engine run for about one minute and shut the engine off. Close the hood.

    How to change altenater belt on 87' cabi



    INSPECTION

    Inspect the belts for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately. It is always best to replace all drive belts at one time, as a preventive maintenance measure, during this service operation.


    CHECKING TENSION AND ADJUSTMENT

    See Figure 1
    The belt tension on most driven components is adjusted by moving the component (alternator, power steering pump etc.) within the range of a slotted bracket. Some brackets (toothed) use a rack and pinion mechanism which moves the alternator side-to-side to adjust the belt tension. With this configuration, no prying tools are required. On Quantum (except 5 cylinder) and Fox models, the air conditioner compressor drive belts are adjusted by varying the number of discs (shims) between the halves of the crankshaft pulley. Before adjusting the belt tension on any engine, look at the mounting and determine what kind of bracket is used.
    To check belt tension, push in on the drive belt about midway between the crankshaft pulley and the driven component. If the belt is less than 39.4 in. (1m) long, it should deflect between 0.80-0.120 in. (2-5mm). For longer belts, it should deflect between 0.40-0.060 in. (10-15mm). Belt size is usually printed on the back side of the belt. If it can't be read, it's probably time to replace it.

    Fig. Fig. 1: To check belt tension, push in on the drive belt about midway between the crankshaft pulley and the driven component
    Slotted Brackets
    See Figures 2, 3 and 4

    1. Loosen the adjustment nut/bolt in the slotted bracket. Slightly loosen the pivot bolt.
    2. Pull (don't pry) the component outward to increase tension. Push inward to reduce tension. Tighten the adjusting nut/bolt and the pivot bolt.

    Fig. Fig. 2: Alternator mounting with slotted brackets

    1. Components, such as the power steering pump and some air conditioner compressors, may be mounted with a double slotted adjusting bracket using a threaded bolt and locknut to adjust and maintain tension. Loosen the locknut(s) and slightly loosen the bolt(s) in the slotted groove(s). Turn the threaded adjustment bolt(s) in or out to gain correct tension. Tighten locknut(s) and slotted bracket bolt(s).
    2. Recheck the drive belt tension, readjust if necessary.

    Fig. Fig. 5: Loosen the tension bolt (shown) and the alternator pivot bolt until the alternator swings freely under its own weight

    1. Adjust the V-belt by turning the nut on the tension bolt while checking the belt deflection with your thumb.
    2. Once the proper tension is achieved, tighten the tension bolt to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm). Tighten the pivot bolt to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
    3. Recheck the drive belt tension, readjust if necessary.

    Split Pulley
    See Figure 7
    On Quantum (except 5 cylinder) and Fox models, the air conditioner compressor drive belts are adjusted by varying the number of discs (shims) between the halves of the crankshaft pulley.

    1. Remove the nuts/bolts securing the tensioner plate and crankshaft pulley halves.
    2. Add or remove the amount of spacer discs between the pulley halves until the belt tension is correct.

    Fig. Fig. 7: Belt adjusting shims on Quantum (except 5 cylinder) and Fox models. Extra shims are stored behind the tensioner plate on Fox and turbo diesel Quantums (shown)
    If there are any shims left over, do not throw them away. On Fox and turbo diesel Quantum models, store the extra shims in front of the split pulley (behind the tensioner plate). On Quantums with 4 cylinder gas engines, store the extra shims behind the split pulley (in front of the crankshaft hub).

    1. Secure the pulley halves. Torque the pulley nuts or bolts to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).


    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    If a belt must be replaced, the driven unit must be loosened and moved to its extreme loosest position (usually by moving it toward the center of the motor). After removing the old belt, check the pulleys for dirt or built-up material which could affect belt contact. Carefully install the new belt, it may appear to be just a little too small to fit over the pulley flanges. Fit the belt over the largest pulley (usually the crankshaft pulley at the bottom center of the motor) first, then work on the smaller one(s). Gentle pressure in the direction of rotation is helpful. Some belts run around a third or idler pulley, which acts as an additional pivot in the belt's path. It may be possible to loosen the idler pulley as well as the main component, making your job much easier. Depending on which belt(s) you are changing, it may be necessary to loosen or remove other interfering belts to get at the one(s) you want. Some models have a front engine mount installed through the air conditioner compressor belt circle. Support the engine and remove the mount prior to belt removal and installation.
    When buying replacement belts, remember that the fit is critical according to the length of the belt, the width of the belt, the depth of the belt and the angle or profile of the V shape (always match up old belt with new belt if possible). The belt shape should exactly match the shape of the pulley; belts that are not an exact match can cause noise, slippage and premature failure.
    After the new belt is installed, adjust it for proper tension. This is sometimes a three or four-handed job; you may find an assistant helpful. Make sure that all the bolts you loosened are retightened and that any other loosened belts also have the correct tension. A new belt can be expected to stretch a bit after installation so be prepared to re-adjust your new belt.
    After installing a new belt, run the engine for about 5 minutes and then recheck the belt tension.

    Need to replace Serpentine belt and p/s belt on my 2002 honda odyssey is this complicated?


    the procedure is as follows:-- You have to do it from underneath the vehicle. Take off the rivets to the two plastic covers, and then you will be able to see the tensioner for the belt. Use a 3/4 inch wrench on the tensioner (don't put it on the bolt that holds the tensioner on), and pull it toward the vehicle. The belt will loosen, and you can take it off. As a car owner, you know how important the belt tensioner is for your 2002 Honda Odyssey. However, internal parts wear and damage will loosen or seize the tensioner wheel, causing the belt to slip and make noise. Eventually, the belt may break, shut down the engine and lead you into a serious traffic accident. Before that happens, replace the tensioner on your Honda model and save yourself a lot of problems:---- Remove the Drive Belt:-- 1)Look for the drive belt routing diagram on your vehicle's engine compartment. This is a black and white label, about 4 by 6 inches, usually attached to the radiator shroud or near the strut towers inside the engine compartment. This diagram will be your guide when reinstalling the drive belt. If cannot find one, make a simple sketch on a piece of paper. 2) Insert a belt-tension release tool, or similar tool, into the auto-tensioner arm. 3)Rotate the auto-tensioner arm counterclockwise and slip the belt off the tensioner pulley. 4) Release the auto-tensioner but do not let it snap back in place. 5) Remove the drive belt from the engine compartment. Replace the Belt Tensioner 1) Unscrew the two auto-tensioner mounting bolts using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. Note the location of each bolt because they are of different size. 2) Remove the old auto-tensioner from the engine compartment. 3) Set the new auto-tensioner in place and start the two mounting bolts by hand. Make sure you install the bolts in their original place. 4) Start tightening the bolts until they hit the stop using the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. 5) Torque the two bolts using a torque wrench. Torque the small bolt to 16-foot pounds [22 Nm] and the large bolt to 47-foot pounds [64 Nm]. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

    Remove water pump


    Disconnect battery earth lead. Do not turn crankshaft or camshaft whn timing beld removed. Remove spark plugs to ease turning engine. Turn engine in normal direction of rotation (unless otherwise stated) Do not turn engine via camshaft or other sprockets. Observe all tightening torques. Remove engine, remve RH engine mounting. Remove auxiliary drive belts, water pump pulley, crankshaft pulley, timing belt upper cover, timing belt lower cover. Turn crankshaft clockwise to TDC on No. 1 cylinder, slacken tensioner bolts 5 & 6. Move tensioner away from belt and lightly tighten bolts. Remove timing belt. Remove water pump and replace with new one. Suggest to replace cambelt as well.

    2.7L & 3.5L Engines same Tools & Procedure Rate Me Please 1/2 in. breaker bar & Special Tool 7198 for conventional V-belts and Poly-V belts
    1. REMOVAL
      AIR CONDITIONING BELT

      NOTE: The A/C drive belt self tensioner is NOT a dynamic tensioner. After adjustment the tensioner bracket bolts are tightened. The torsion spring is no longer responsible for tensioning the A/C belt. The torsion spring is only used for initial belt tensioning.
      1. Remove generator/power steering belt to gain access to A/C belt. Refer to GENERATOR/POWER STEERING BELT for procedure.

      1. Loosen BUT DO NOT REMOVE tensioner locking bolt and pivot bolt (Fig. 2).
      2. Insert 1/2" drive breaker bar into square opening on belt tensioner. Rotate tensioner counterclockwise until belt can be removed from pulleys (Fig. 2).
      3. Slowly rotate tensioner clockwise to relieve spring load.
      CLEANING
      Clean all foreign debris from belt pulley grooves. The belt pulleys must be free of oil, grease, and coolants before installing the drive belt.

      INSPECTION
      Belt replacement under any or all of the following conditions is required:
      • Excessive wear
      • Frayed cords
      • Severe glazing
    • Poly-V Belt system may develop minor cracks across the ribbed side (due to reverse bending). These minor cracks are considered normal and acceptable. Parallel cracks are not (Fig. 3).

      NOTE:
      Do not use any type of belt dressing or restorer on Poly-V Belts. INSTALLATION

      AIR CONDITIONING BELT - NEW

      WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE A/C BELT TENSIONER LOCKING BOLT WITHOUT FIRST HOLDING THE TENSIONER WITH A 1/2" DRIVE BREAKER BAR, AS PERSONAL INJURY COULD RESULT.
    NOTE: Verify that torsion spring position is in the new belt position before installing a NEW belt (Fig. 4). If torsion spring is not in the new belt position, follow steps 1-7 to change the tensioner spring from the USED belt position to the NEW belt position.
    1. Insert a 1/2" drive breaker bar into the square opening on the tensioner. Hold counterclockwise pressure on tensioner while removing the locking bolt (Fig. 2).
    2. Carefully release spring load of the torsion spring on the tensioner.
    3. Remove pivot bolt, tensioner, and spring from front timing cover.
    4. Insert spring arm into the NEW belt position on the tensioner (Fig. 4).
    5. Install torsion spring, tensioner, and pivot bolt.
    6. Install pivot bolt. Tighten only finger tight, at this time.
    7. Using a 1/2" drive breaker bar, apply counterclockwise pressure until locking bolt can be installed.
      1. Install the NEW belt by rotating the tensioner counterclockwise until the NEW belt can be installed on pulleys. See (Fig. 5) for belt routing.
      2. Release tensioner and remove breaker bar. Belt is automatically adjusted with the tensioner's torsion spring.
      3. Tighten tensioner locking bolt and pivot bolt to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.) (Fig. 2).
      4. Install generator/power steering belt.
      AIR CONDITIONING BELT - USED

      NOTE: A "used belt" is considered having more than 500 miles of service use. NOTE: Perform steps 1-7 to change the tensioner spring from the NEW belt position, to the USED belt position.
      1. Insert a 1/2" drive breaker bar into the square opening on tensioner. Hold counterclockwise pressure on tensioner, while removing tensioner locking bolt (Fig. 2).
      2. Carefully release the tension of spring on tensioner.
      3. Remove pivot bolt, tensioner, and spring from front cover.
      4. Insert spring into the USED belt position on tensioner bracket (Fig. 4).
      5. Install spring, tensioner bracket, and pivot bolt.
      6. Install pivot bolt. Tighten only finger tight, at this time.
      7. Using a 1/2" drive breaker bar, apply counterclockwise pressure until locking bolt can be installed.
      8. Install the USED belt by rotating tensioner counterclockwise until belt can be installed on pulleys. See (Fig. 5) for belt routing.
      9. Release tensioner and remove breaker bar. Belt is automatically adjusted with the tensioner's torsion spring.
      10. Tighten tensioner locking bolt and pivot bolt to 28 Nm (250 in. lbs.) (Fig. 2).
