More cambelt questions


Hope I'm not going over old ground here but the majority of the cambelt concerns I have read on here relate to the T-sparks.

What is the best advice with regards to the Cambelt replacement for a 2.5 V6, does this need replacing as often. Mine has recorded change at 42k and the previous owner assured me it had been done recently although could not provide receipts, the car has now done 97k.

What advice would you guys give, spend my nuts on getting the whole lot done - belts, tensioners and water pump or keep my fingers crossed and look at a change in about 30k miles????

Hope it makes sense, any advice welcome.

Re: More cambelt questions

Assuming it was done at 42K and then at 78K (i.e 42K + 36K), you need one at 114K.

However, if you are unsure of the 78K figure, a cambelt change is cheaper than a new engine!
