Volvo Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Like I posted above, I have a 2001 Volvo V70 XC with a 5 cyc, Turbo engine B5244T. This has variable hydraulic cam timing on the exaust cam. I did a valve job on the engine. I can get it to start and Idel OK but I can tell the cam timing is way off, it does not accelirate properly.
I have Volvo Servcie manual CD VADIS but the instructions are NOT clear on how to specifically set the exaust cam with VCT (variable cam timing) This cam with VCT can turn 20+ degrees, they do NOT address this. I have the special tool to lock the cams together properly aligned and crank positioning tool.
What I need assistance with is specifically how to set the exaust cam????
Yes the timing mark on the Intake Cam and crank is perfect, I have the timing belt routed exactly as shown. THe problem is the Varable Hydralic Exaust cam. The VADIS manual is vauge at best on setting the exaust cam. With the exaust cam locked into place with timing tool (attaches at the back of the cam) you can still turn the timing gear (in the front of the cam) about 20 degrees. I am not sure if I am to leave it in the center.... crank it left or right (20 degrees is a wide range...) a few degrees.
