Re: What do I change Cam Belt??

I believe so. I have a cinq sporting and I have had a new cambelt fitted today - thought it was about time cos the car has done 67,777, with no record of a previous cam change. 40,000 is the usual.

Re: What do I change Cam Belt??

Sounds about right, I bought my Sei with 42k on the clock with no history of it having been done and it'll be one of the first things I do when I get the time to service it...

Better to do it and know when it was done than leave it to chance.

Re: What do I change Cam Belt??

FIAT schedule is 72k but widely accepted that it needs to be 36k

no damage will occur if it snaps though as the Fire 1108 is a non-interference engine (the valves wont hit pistons)

Re: What do I change Cam Belt??

i knew that but was thinking, if u put a punto 75 cam on the cinq is it still a "safe" engine if the cambelt snaps?
