Question type: General

kilometers and it now has 322 thousand kilometers on it

3 Answers


The timing belt in a Volvo engine is a VERY important piece of equipment to keep everything working within proper tolerance order. Though the original went to 205K miles, I would stick to the original manufacturers specification about changing the timing belt at specified mileage since it is so important to the overall powertrain health.

Thanks Fordutor It is a second hand car though and i dont have the manual to guide me to when it should be changed


Go online and look up the information as I did here. After reading briefly what I could on "www.produtools.com", I would keep a mechanic employed so I wasn't on my back all day. Have you stopped by a local dealer and asked for a copy of the factory service guide.
