  1. I'm going to have my timing belt replaced for the first time, at 94xxx miles. I plan to use the following volvo parts:

    - timing belt, idler pulley, and tensioner (these come in volvo's "kit")
    - water pump & the gasket volvo includes
    - serpentine (or drive) belt


    1. Any other timing components I should replace?

    2. Should crank seal & cam seals be replaced even if they aren't leaking? What is their life expectancy?

    3. Since replacing the Piston Cooling Valve requires removing timing belt, tensioner, & pulley, should I go ahead and have a new PCV installed now? Mine has never been cleaned.

    4. Anything else that should be done while they are in that part of the engine? I don't want to miss something that is near the end of its life expectancy & have to pay for the same labor again anytime soon.

    5. Any good reasons to use the dealer over a reputable, independent shop? Does replacing these parts on my volvo differ much from other cars?
