Volvo Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is Michael, I would like to help you.
I am now dealing with your question, I will be back in this chat in a few minutes.
Was the diesel tested for water?
If not, it should be checked.
If the diesel contains water, this is not a guarantee case. I assume that the torn timing belt has destroyed the entire engine? If so, the costs will unfortunately remain with you.
However, if no water is detectable in the fuel, I see here an operational damage due to the failed fuel pump. These can eat themselves even without water. This is very rare with the mileage, but not impossible. Here the warranty should apply.
I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
Oh, sorry, I wasn't looking at the year. My fault.
Yes, a seizure of the pump causes the timing belt to break. This is typical for such damage to the injection pump.
The master mechanic can make a goodwill application to Volvo. Volvo may then add something to the repair, but unfortunately there is no entitlement to a share of the costs.
Only the PRaftstoff can be tested by sucking something out of the tank, this can be done in front of the fuel filter. I estimate the labour costs at maximum GPB 50 Euro.
But I think that the workshop has investigated the pump and other causes. The diagnostic costs they named are not untypical.
PRaftstoff = fuel sorry
If there is a suspicion that water in the fuel has caused the problem it is necessary, yes.
Yes, wear and tear (even at low mileage this can happen if the fit in the pump was not ok) or the tank was once completely empty, so that the car went out or misfuelling with petrol.
