doblo timing belt

hey guys,hows you all???
quick question,what damage occurs on the doblo 1.9 jtd(04 plate),when the timing belt breaks?
does it kill the valves that hit the pistons,or is there a lucky failsafe that breaks first??
any help will be most appreciated,Adee.

Re: doblo timing belt

As far as I know it isn't failsafe as it is on the FIRE engines and a failure could wreck your engine.

I think the replacement interval is five years, but check that. This is one service item it isn't worth skimping on.

Mine needs doing again next year...

Re: doblo timing belt

thanks Ulpian for your reply.
i had a sneaky feeling that would be the answer,oh well,i'll give the neighbour the bad news.
you are right though,for the sake of less than 100 quid for a kit,it is definitely false economey not to have it done......says he who still hasn't done the belt on my mitsi L200,DOH!!!!
thanks again,adee.
