Does my Volvo V70 have a chain cam engine?
I am seeking to find out about the engine fitted to my Volvo V70 SE Lux D3. I have been told that it is fitted with a chain camshaft drive, but I cannot find any details of this in the handbook or on the Volvo website.
No Volvo diesel has a chain cam engine. All are belt, either Volvo's own 2.0-litre and 2.5-litre 5-cylinder belt cam diesels, or PSA/Ford 1.6- or 2.0-litre 4-cylinder belt cam diesels. Belts on the Volvo engines best replaced along with waterpumps and tensioners every 60,000 - 70,000 miles, and belts on the PSA/Ford engines at around 80,000 miles.
