Timing belt job advice

Recommended Posts

So today at a gas station I notice coolant flowing on the ground from under my car.  Upon a quick inspection I believe it's the water pump (coming from above front passenger cv boot). Luckily I was able to make it home without any problems. 

I just hit 300k miles so I was planning on doing a complete timing belt job with vivas Kevlar belt kit.

i was just wondering what's the best guide people have used, and does anyone have any advice or tips before I dive in as this will be my first time tackling this.  Thanks in advance everyone!

If rather just get it from viva because it comes as a kit with everything so there's no way I could get the wrong belt or something.

this might be a stupid question, but are the timing belt and serpentine belt the same belt on these cars, or are they two completely different belts?

Did you look at the post or video? It is clear that the belts are different.

Serpentine belt is what drives the alternator, power steering pump, A/C compressor. That is what is being done on #3 and #4 of the article ointed to above.

...told you it was a stupid question haha.  Sorry about that though, I wasn't gonna read/watch either of them until I was actually ready to do the job.

Its always good to look over all the information before hand to make sure you have all extra parts and tools that may be needed.

      Iv been getting some data and doing expiriments to help all of us. Think our i5 are pretty great but this lack of easy way to tune isnt gonna fly. So far as a recap i started with a 2000 volvo s70 se. She was na and blew a hg. Fixed it happened again this time the bores didnt look too good so out she went and in came a b5254t out of a 06xc70. I got the car to run on the denso and slowly kept going with it. I also got it to run on my me7 and me9 via harness adapter. Started to work on a few ways to do this to answer the age old can i turbo swap question. In short yes and its easier than any of you would believe. The stock denso with alittle monkeyery to the car actually runs this thing perfect until 8-9psi then things get a bit lean but not scary until 13psi. I am working on the me7 and me9 aswell still just put them on the backburner for the simple fact that their too smart for their own good and im low on time these days. I have found (and i am in the early stages of testing.) That a power commander 5 that we use on motorcycles will work on the denso. Its cheap and i think i can get a speed density conversion with it. Read the link for details i just got referred here due to very little help on the other fourm. 
      I do intend to sell a pnp set up if theres interest and down the road but i will be posting everything one needs to do it themselves so if anyone can chime in with some help in a few parts id be very grateful and the whole community would benifit. 
      Anyone know how big na denso injectors are part number 3460? Iv been searching for awhile and im gonna just eat it and build a flow bench if no one knows but i really dont want too lol.
      Check out my water injection kit its ugly but man it works (no intercooler or lag) and its cheap.
      Before anyone asks yes all of this has been done on the cheap quick and dirty side. Im looking for answers not a show car.. Although i do have this other motor here with sleeves, rods, pistons,studs and a trans thats halfway together for awd swap a real awd swap not the haladex.. But first this is my dd and i enjoy the lack of attention it gets from local pd. Its gonna be a year or two before im going that far with it. For now im looking to make the electronics happy and have some fun. see whats the cheapest most attainable way to do this swap safely and make power is. Keeping in mind that it needs to be simple enough that anyone can do it.

      Hi folks, looking for some help with a misfire/sputter on a 1998 V70 N/A (537xxxkm). Car was throwing some codes for the rear O2 sensor, but wasn't doing anything funny. Coming back from a camping trip, it started to misfire/sputter while cruising at 100km/h in 5th gear. It then started stalling out while at idle. I replaced the rear sensor, and shortly after, it started to throw codes for the front O2 sensor (slow response, and lean mixture), and do the same thing.
      It is fine on startup, but sometimes will have little fits of stalling at idle, and sputtering/missing when accelerating/cruising. When it would stall, I used to be able to get it too restart on the first try, but now it usually takes 2-4 cycles of the ignition to get it to catch. Once I give it some gas and take off, it improves a little, and just seems to lack a little power. When at idle, you can also smell the exhaust, which normally is very clean.
      Today I replaced the front O2 sensor. The car ran well for 30min, then threw the same codes, and started acting up again. I've tested the PCV and the compression, and both are fine. The spark plugs are new, but the rest of the ignition system (Coils, leads, rotor) are older. I'm thinking this sounds like either an ignition system problem, or a fuel system. I'm not sure how to run the normal relay test, because it it is really intermittent with its sputtering/stalling. (Currently there seems to be about a 50/50 chance of it being fine, or acting up when I take it out) I'm probably going to redo the ignition system, because the car needs it anyways, but am wondering what else this could be.
      Thanks guys!

      Hey guys, Rob here. 
      I figured it was time to go ahead and make a thread since this car has been around the community and finally down here in FL for the last 8 years. 
      At one point this used to be my daily, now ive moved on to a 2018 S60 and it has become more of a project/fun/love/hate car. 
      It's had a lot of work and a lot done to it so I guess a little back tracking is warranted. 
      Originally a 1998 s70 2.3 T5 Automatic. 
      Around 2010 I added a OBX Exhaust system, 18t, WideBand, ARD blue custom Tune, various other little things. 
      Around 2013? it went from a 18t to a K24, Manual swap, and RN swap.  The RN recieved a rebuilt top/bottom using new parts and seals before install as well as the tranny. (Lol Tranny)
      Eariler this year (Feb 2018), I managed to kill the engine coming home from a large volvo meet in Orlando (over 120 volvos so I guess thats large)
      (enter the new daily thanks to winter park volvo (chris is my new bestie))
      Ordered up an 02 2.4LPT engine since there were no 2.3's in stock anywhere, and it sat in my garage with the s70 for close to 8 months...  (Hey at least the detail I got before the meet in Feb lasted 8 months riiiiiggghhhttt?)
      After finally getting tired and life back on track from a number of bad events, I sent the car and engine off to Maitland Importers (enter Alan <3 )  
      A week and $2k later, I got 1 s70 back with almost nothing for me to worry about, new control arms, endlinks, engine professionally installed, etc. etc. 
      And this catches us up to now.  October 2018 :D
