1999 Volvo S70 Q&A
1999 Volvo S70 Question: Timing belt;water pump; tensioners...etc?
The recommended replacement for your timing belt depends on the engine #. This is the year they went from 70,000 Mile Interval (7 years) to a 105,000 Mile Interval (10 years) Timing Belt. Either way, you should have it replaced due to age. Having the timing belt break will cause several thousands of dollars to fix, so it's a good practice to have it done sooner rather than later. Have the tensioner replaced, and if the water pump shows any signs of leakage, replace that too. - Bret Bodas
