Re: ok so when should i change the cambelt

£17 sounds too dear for just the belt but too cheap for the kit for the 16v

Re: ok so when should i change the cambelt

Didnt you say this car has had an engine change at sometime, if so what milleage date was this ment to be carried out.

Tbh if the service history isnt all that good your are better off just getting it done and making a note of it, better to be safe than sorry as these arnt safe engines.

Re: ok so when should i change the cambelt

I honestly don't believe that engine has been changed. its too filthy and you keep coming up with remarks that point to another conclusion.

change it, much better £££ spendage then on ricing it out
