Sorry to say this but 101% chance you bent the valves. Timing belt overdue. Volvo recommends 10 years or 105,000 miles whichever comes first. I did do a head once under warranty because the tensioner failed but car was only 6 years old. If you are a pretty good customer with Volvo and have all your repairs done there then you could have a good chance they may offer some type of goodwil to you wether they pay for labor only or split the bill? If they do the price would be at warranty time. But you would need to contact Volvo to see if they will help you? The worse that could happen is that they will say no. Good luck to you and let us know what happens.
