4th tesioner belt in six months! any ideas
Hi all, i'm new on here and to alfas.
After much deliberation I bought an 05 plate 147 jtd in febuary and I am now facing the job of having the 4th tensioner belt fitted since i got it! The first went after about a month of owning and the second after 5 miles! At this point i had the pulley changed as it apparently had a "nick" in it that could have been the problem. everything was ok for 6 weeks and that was that. But yesterday the third one shredded itself on the way home and i am at a total loss.
I was not aware that this was a common problem on the jtd (i got the jtd due thier apparent reliability) and was wondering if anyone could suggest why it is happeneing.
I did get a warning two days ago about motor control system failure that vanished the same day, it turned out to be the bank 1 camshaft sensor that failed, does that have anything to do with it??
Help me please!?!?!
