Question about 1999 Volvo S80

1 Answer

Is replacing the Seals and CVVT a part of the timing belt service that is normally done around 105,000 miles? If not and this service is done separately, how much should this run? I had the timing belt changed last year in April and now my general warning lite is on and the dealership is telling me the seals and CVVT need to be replaced at a cost of an additional $1600. The timing belt service was already $1500.

No
they are different items
get a quote from an accredited service center on the CVVT system
have the fault codes read as it is normally a solenoid or servo that needs replacing
it is a unit that changes the valve timing for different engine speeds and is less than the price suggested

I have a 1995 850 turbo wagon with over 266,000 miles and it is still going strong. It uses very little oil in between changes.

Go to www.FCPgroton.com and enter your make and year, then check under timing components. They sale a few different kits for this job. I would recommend doing the timimg belt, idler pulley, tensioner, water pump at serpentine belt at a minimum. you can check and see if you need to do the cam seals also one of their kits includes all these. I would only do those if they were leaking.

Is a nissan 2.4L DOHC engine an interference fit?


autodata identifies all nissan 2.4 liter engines as interference fit
there are special requirements when fitting the belt so a workshop manual would be a big advantage to do the job right
replace all idler pulleys as the nearings will be at service life as well
if there is indication of oil stains in the covers , replace both cam shaft and crank shaft seals as oil is the major destroyer of cam belts

Red light on maintenance required is on, what would that mean. Oil has been changed recently, approximately 45,000 miles on the car


the maintenance schedule is in the owners manual on the last 2 pages I believe, But here are some of the things to check the maintenance schedule on that car calls for oil changes every 3,750 miles if you primarily use the car around town or 7,500 if you do mostly highway driving without stop and go traffic. Most cars should go by the 3,750 schedule.

tire rotations should be every 7,500 miles. Brakes should be checked when the tires are rotated.

the major service on the 4 cylinder is every 30,000 miles. that includes the tune-up items of replacing spark plugs, adjusting the valves, replacing the air filter, transmission fluid, interior cabin filter and the inspections and adjustments.

the 6 cylinder does not need the valve adjustment or spark plug replacement until 105,000 miles. otherwise, the fluids and filter replacements are every 30k.

the timing belt on both the 4 cyl and the 6 cyl is 105,000. at that time the water pump and coolant are also replaced as well as the other accessory drive belts.

Brake fluid should be replaced every 3 years or 45,000 miles.

What type of maintenance my car would need after 90,000 miles


There is no special service needed at 90,000 miles other than the normal Air Filter & Cabin Filter replacement every 30,000 miles. Inspect all drive belts and hoses. You do need to replace Brake Fluid every 3 years independent of mileage. At 110,000 miles replace the spark plugs on a 4 cylinder, 105,000 on a V6. Replace engine coolant at 120,000 or 10 years on both engines. Replace A/T fluid at 60,000 miles. On the V6 at 105,000 miles replace the Cam belt and Water Pump. The 4 cylinder has a chain that you replace when it is noisy or you cannot keep the engine in time.

When to replace the timing belt on a 2002 audi a4 1.8T


Audi 4 cylinder engines must have timing belt replaced as soon as 75,00 miles but no later than 105,000 miles. When doing job properly the mechanics should be replacing belt, tensioners, rollers, waterpump, thermostat and gasket. Average price would be around $900-$1200 US dollars.

Honda Accord V6 2001


I can see that as being possible. Hondas are usually due for timing belt replacement at 90k though - has this been done on your car? If it has, then it doesn't need to be done again for 90k miles from the mileage it was originally done at. If your car needs this service, it's the big one. A timing belt service usually is the timing belt, the t-belt tensioner, accessory belts, any tensioners for them, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, and all filters and fluids. That price may be somewhat on the high end, and I think you should comparison shop a few places to see where their pricing comes in, but I can believe that quote (the $920 quote, not the $1600 - that's ridiculous).
