Question about 2001 Volvo V70

1 Answer

2001 V70 turbocharger pumping oil out exhaust

Recently had car serviced including a veriable valve solenoid gasket replacement, PCV Box reseal and timing belt replaced (2nd time in less than 6 months)due to oil saturation. Was told by mechanic that crankcase pressure causing seal(s) to fail - on the 1st timing belt replacement had oil leak because of cam sensor seal failure. Less than a week after repairs were done, car suddenly started smoking significantly out of exhaust. Towed to back to the shop and was told that a the turobcharger was taking in oil (metioned something about a bearing) and pumping out exhaust. Is this something that the mechanics should have addressed (visable because of the other work they were doing or checked because of the pressure issues and resulting failures of older parts)? The above made up about half of a $2600 bill and the turbocharger work is going to run no less than $1400.

SOURCE: Oil leak above water pump

most prob both, get a new gasket for it and replace that should solve the problem, if not check around the part thats leaking and make sure there is no hair line cracks, but sounds like a bad job did, or it may just need to be tightend up

SOURCE: 98 Volvo V70 GLT - Oil Pump or Valve Job?

Most common cause of ticking in these is the oil pick-up seals. Remove the pan and replace the oil pick-up tube seal, the two seals for the tube in the pan and the 2 O-rings on the right side of the pan. And dont use silicone to seal the pan back up, because it WILL leak, I highly recommend the Volvo sealant

SOURCE: oil pressure warning on 2001 Volvo v70 with 220Km

The best way to attack this is to have your oil pressure checked. That would rule out a pump problem or the sender issue. If you want the least expensive fix is to just replace the oil pressure sender yourself and then see if the problem goes away. You can also add a thicker oil when you change the oil to see if that solves the problem. A 10W30 oil is thinner than a 10W50. If this helps then the engine or pump may be worn or failing. I hope the cheap fix helps!!

SOURCE: had timing belt replaced in 1/2010 for 2001 volvo s80.

yes,the water pump should have been changed at the same time,BUT,and i keep saying this to all my customers,no garage will do any work that you, the client, dont ask for and if they reccomend it they are trying to rip you off.the original repairperson is not at fault in any way,as you cant see inside the pump to decide when its going to fail.....not what you wanted to hear ,but true.
best find a good mech and follow him/her around,that way it becomes personal.

Timing belt broken kia rio 2003

it is an interference engine which means that when a belt breaks , you can expect at least half of the valves to be bent and need replacing
you can get more quotes for the job as that seems extreme
the work entails replacing the belt , idler pulleys , cam and crank seals and hydraulic adjuster ( a professional job to get another 60,000miles from the belt)
That much will set you back by around $1000.00 including labour
The extra is the head removal and new valves so add another $700.00 --including labour )for that and you can see that you need more quotes from accredited service shops

How do i tighten the timing belt on a v-6

the timing belt adjuster is automatic
if there is slack, the belt is beyond its service limits and should be replaced before failure
timing belt failure includes severe engine damage
belt breaks
crankshaft continues to rotate
camshafts stop
one or more valves jam open,
jammed valves smash the piston crown on the next upstroke
large fragments of steel destroy the bottom end

Engine $thousands or Belt and adjuster kit $200
