Based on industry averages you can expect to pay between $16.59 and $39.99 for a Volvo 960 timing belt.

A Volvo 960 timing belt is a component that synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft in the engine. It controls the opening and closing of the engine valves, which allows air and fuel into the combustion chamber and exhaust out.

The typical lifespan of a Volvo 960 timing belt is between 60,000 to 100,000 miles or 5 to 7 years, although it is recommended to check the manufacturer's recommendations for a specific model. It is important to replace the timing belt before it breaks, as a broken timing belt can cause serious damage to the engine.

Signs of a Worn Volvo 960 Timing Belt

  1. Engine misfires or runs poorly: When the timing belt becomes stretched or damaged, the engine may misfire or run rough. This is because the belt is responsible for keeping the engine's camshaft and crankshaft synchronized.
  2. Squealing noise from the engine: A worn timing belt may produce a squealing noise when the engine is running. This noise usually gets louder as the engine RPMs increase.
  3. Oil leaks: A worn timing belt may also cause oil leaks around the engine. This is because the belt can become loose and may start to pull on other components, such as the front crankshaft seal.
  4. Engine won't start: If the timing belt breaks completely, the engine will not start. This is because the camshaft and crankshaft are no longer synchronized, which will prevent the engine from firing.
  5. Reduced engine performance: A worn timing belt can reduce the engine's performance by causing it to operate at a lower RPM. This can lead to reduced acceleration and overall power.

Replacing the Timing Belt on Your Volvo 960

  1. Park the car on a level surface and disconnect the battery.
  2. Remove the front passenger wheel and the splash shield.
  3. Loosen the alternator and power steering pump bolts and remove their belts.
  4. Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt, washer, and pulley.
  5. Remove the timing belt cover and inspect the timing marks. Align them if necessary.
  6. Loosen the tensioner pulley bolt and slide the tensioner away from the belt.
  7. Remove the old timing belt and check it for damage or wear.
  8. Install the new timing belt, making sure the timing marks are still aligned.
  9. Use a wrench to turn the crankshaft two full turns clockwise to ensure everything is in sync.
  10. Reinstall the timing belt cover, crankshaft pulley, belts, and splash shield.
  11. Reconnect the battery and start the car to make sure everything is running smoothly.

Note: The above steps are not intended to be a complete guide, and may vary depending on the specific year and model of your Volvo 960. It's always recommended to refer to your vehicle's owner manual or contact a professional mechanic for assistance.
