Timing belt interval

I have a 53 reg Stilo 1.9 JTD MW. The car is on 57K miles, does anybody know what the cam belt change interval is on these?

Re: Timing belt interval

In the stilo manual it says 70k miles or 5 years but IIRC this has been revised to 3 years or 36k, the cam belt change is an absolute must do on the stilo if yours hasn't been changed get it done ASAP coz if it snaps you will be looking for a new engine

Re: Timing belt interval

Even on original schedule it's overdue (over 5 years) so I'd get it done ASAP

Might be worth looking at new water pump too (lots of threads on this topic)

My 1.9 MJet GPS is on 54,000 miles in 3 years and I'm pricing up the work, 266 for a Gates kit of belts and idlers with a QH water pump, that price is all in inc VAT. Needs to be done as its MoT time on Sept 29th and they run the engine up to max revs for a while and the testing station actually have a Warning sign up about the risk of cambelt failure!

Well my water pump is coming up to 7 years old and although you might just get a chance to say "I told you...." I'm determined you wont

I'm giving increasing attention to its lubrication

I'm still open to suggestions Phil... the 3 places that quoted all use Gates kit.

That Dayco warranty looks useful, would that cover the engine if their kit failed in the warranty period?

Goddamit why are things so blo*dy awkward.... trouble is its simpler (but far more expensive!) to just take it to a dealer and have Fiat OE stuff fitted...

In your experience Phil.... anything bad to say about Gates kit based on actual 1st hand experience?

Never used Gates sorry mate ..dayco warranty is really a gift horse..IYKWIM..on the stilo I used my own parts and dealer charged me 180 including gearbox oil change..and that was a gift horse as well I thought.. dayco cover any damage done and fund all costs if their kits fail..not bad eh

Lazy is the right word Phil.

Paid area main dealer 150 (using full oem fitting kit) to do the job (on exactly 5 years) and they even washed the car for me

last time the dealer washed my car (after a half price mot..) i lost a "1" from "16V" now it reads "6V"

oh - fiat oem kit is about 90 pump is about 40 (and these are easy to fit.. especially on an oil burner)
