Default Squealing From The Engine Compartment...

My '97 960 started making a squealing sound from the engine bay during warm up. I assumed it was the air pump since it only runs suring warm up and paid it no mind. I figured it would stop when it finally went out and I would deal with it then.

Then I thought about changing the timing belt in our S70 and Tech told me that the tensioners and pulleys will squeal when they are bad. So I thought, Oh Crap! My 960 is squealing. So I unhooked the air pump and started the car, and the squealing was still there. So I took the timing belt cover off and the noise was louder then ever.

So I parked the car because if they seize, they can cause the timing belt to break or timing to jump causing engine damage. The next day I noticed that my water pump was leaking as well. Maybe the bad tensioner or pulley cause the water pump to wear out.

The car only has 88k on it and the timing belt was replaced almost 2 years ago. I guess they did NOT change the tensioner and pulley. Word to the wise... If a car has more than 10 years on it, make sure they replace the tensioner and pulley whenever the timing belt is replaced.

Np you do not have to. As long as the gasket is pretty straight it will slide onto the 2 pins and stay. Then slide the water pump on and tighten it up.

This is kinda turning into to circus for me. My pulley was so hard to turn, I have to use 2 hands. My tensioner damper is leaking. My Tensioner roller spins freely like it has no grease in it. My tensioner T-45 bolt stripped. And not it appears that my radiator is leaking. Mo' Money!

Talking Timing Belt Instructions for a '97 Volvo 960

Well I finally finished all the work involved in replacing the timing belt on my '97 Volvo 960. I replaced the timing belt, tensioner dampener, tensioner roller, idler, water pump, and remove and re-installed the radiator.

Here are the instructions I put together for the timing belt change. I added photos and edited some other instructions I found: http://www.atthetipwebs.com/technolo...iming_belt.htm

I did this job a few weeks ago, but I am noticing that my timing belt is "walking" back-and-forth about 1/8" or maybe less. I am going to re-do this job and just looked up some Torque Specifications in my Volvo Data Pocket Book:

- Tensioner pulley: 22 lbs/ft (94-on), 29 for pre-1994
- Damper Unit: 18
- Idler Pulley: 18
- Water Pump: 13

Yes, idler and tensioner were replaced as a unit (incl. rollers) along with belt, water pump, and dampener.
