    Hey guys

    I'm new to the volvo scene...got a 1990 740GL...do they have timing
    belts or chains? Does it have interference or non-interferance
    valves? What's the reccommendded belt change interval, and how much
    does it cost/how hard is it?

    It has a belt. Valves are not interference. Change interval is 80k km,
    or 50k miles. It's one of the easiest engines in the world on which to
    change a timing belt.

    You can find lots of good info at:


    including timing belt changing instructions.
