Timing Belt failure after 6k miles!
So I recently took ownership of a 2.0 TS 147. The timing belt was replaced only 6,000 miles ago. I know it was done as the previous owner was my brother and I bought the kit!
Came off the dual carriageway yesterday slowing down to 40mph and the car just cut out. Tried turning it over, bump start but nothing. AA recovery guy confirmed my worst fears that it looks like timing belt failure.
Recovered the car to the garage who "changed" the belt and waiting until tomorrow so they can inspect it. I know these engines have been known to suffer from belt failure but 6,000 miles is surely taking the **** is it not?
Needless to say I'm not in the best mood at the moment
