The belts, pulleys and tensioners, variator, water-pump and coolant were all changed April 2009.
Car was sat idle for 4.5 years but turned over periodically in between that time.
Has done approx 11K since.
(see start of thread/ original post)
The coolant level has not moved at all in that time and I have never had to top it up.
The coolant is bright red and I just got back from my local ATS where I have my recent MOTs done and he assured me it's fine.
(I'm having my cambelt to be done by an Alfa indie not ATS don't panic)
I reckon with that low milage on the coolant and also the water-pump it should be fine.
yes whilst they are there I could get the water-pump changed and the coolant; but I havent got that much in funds at the moment and is it really really necessary?
I reckon just the cambelt and balance belt with tensioners etc.
I can do the waterpump and coolant next belt change....
