Re: Timing belt Volvo 740 200k miles.

thanks lummert and jerrymcc, I'll try my hand at testing the ECU. You know, i replaced this with used unit already and issue did not resolve. I went to junk yard and tried a used distributor unit as well, but that did not fix issue. I have thought of replacing the entire distributor system will a ne...

Re: Timing belt Volvo 740 200k miles.

thanks jerrymcc, I did get a generic sensor and was able to return it. yes, I erase the code but it comes back. I will look into the injection relay as you suggested. do you have a pic of it? What about the overdrive gear engaging and not engaging? You think it is related to the injection relay as w...

Re: Timing belt Volvo 740 200k miles.

hey jerrymcc, I held the pulley using a small socket. Not clear from the picture - you're right. And i understand the issue about testing the wires and the gap needed - thanks there as well. Actually i got the car started. interesting though I used the old crank shaft positioning sensor. The new one...

Re: Timing belt Volvo 740 200k miles.

hey jerrymcc, thanks for sticking around. i'm including pics for your reference.concerning the pulley harmonic balancer - i just held it in place no special tool used. i think that it should not be that difficult to set timing with out any special tool, but i may be wrong. concerning the fuel inject...

Re: Timing belt Volvo 740 200k miles.

OK here is the latest,
I replaced the 'crankshaft position sensor' and reset the OBD diode. Vehicle does not start still. Should I take a hammer to this vehicle? Any last minute suggestions are most appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Timing belt Volvo 740 200k miles.

Thanks to the both of you thus far. It may sound like I know what I am doing but i highly doubt it. kmaniac - I'm not really sure what you mean by "How did you index the crankshaft prior to timing belt installation?" I looked up the diagram and instructions for the timing on this vehicle and 'it' se...

Re: Timing belt Volvo 740 200k miles.

The belt did not break or slip. It ran 'ify' before the belt change. Piston 1 was misfiring at 1.5k - 2.0k rpm. Then it would work properly at higher rpms. The vehicle would turn off at various intervals while idling. We decided to start by 'reseting' the timing and install another belt. This is whe...

Timing belt Volvo 740 200k miles.

Hey All,

I replaced timing belt on above mentioned vehicle. Belt is properly alinged and checked it a few times by cranking car over a few times. Unfortunately though, vehicle will not start but only cranks over. Any advice is most welcomed. Thanks.
