It is important that you change the timing belt (also called a cambelt) in time on your Volvo S70. On this page you will find more information about the timing belt replacement intervals on a Volvo S70.
I have collected information about various popular diesel engines and petrol engines from 1997 to 2000.
You will also find information about which engines in Volvo S70 that have a timing chain instead of a timing belt.
When should the timing belt be changed on a Volvo S70?
The timing belt replacement intervals are different depending on what model year and engine you have in your Volvo S70.
Further down on this page you will find information about the intervals for different years and engines.
Volvo S70 Timing Belt Replacement Intervals
Below are some examples of different timing belt replacement intervals. Keep in mind that both years and mileage are important to keep track of.
Even if your car has not traveled many miles, a timing belt still needs to be replaced. The material in the timing belts gets worse with age even if you do not use your car very often.
If you do not find your year model or engine, you can often find the information in your instruction manual or by calling a workshop.

Yes, all Volvo S70 engines have timing belts.
What happens if a timing belt breaks on a Volvo S70?
If the timing belt breaks on your Volvo S70, your car will be stranded. It does not matter if the belt comes off completely, or if some teeth come loose.
You can not drive the car anywhere before you fix it. Neither home or to the nearest workshop.
A broken timing belt means that your car must be towed or taken on a car transport from the site.
