P2 model Volvos with the five-cylinder engine use timing belts that have a replacement interval of around 100,000 miles. We recommend replacement much sooner than this at around 80,000 miles. Failure of the timing belt can result in costly repairs, so it's best to replace the belt if you're unsure when it was last, or if it shows signs of wear.
Going to the dealer to have your timing belt replaced is expensive, typically running anywhere from $800 to $1500. By completing this repair yourself at home, you can save a ton of money, and service other components while you already have the car apart. Plus, as with everything we sell, this belt kit comes with our Lifetime Replacement Guarantee, saving you even more money if you ever have to replace it in the future.
This convenient Volvo Timing Belt Kit comes with not only everything you need, but everything that should be replaced when servicing your timing belt. That includes:
- Timing Belt
- Time Belt Tensioner
- Timing Belt Idler
- Water Pump
- Coolant/ Antifreeze
