timing on a 2005 1.6 147
hi, new to the site and got a bit of a technical query if anyone could be kind enoguh to help?
my boss has a 2005 147 with a 1.6 petrol engine, recently its had a new waterpump and had a cambelt change at the same time. shes barely driven it since but has done a couple of 20 mile or so motorway journeys.
it went in for some bodywork today and the garage have rang up saying the engines packed in, their mechanic has told me theres been valve to piston contact, at least 1 valve has snapped and smashed the piston and plugs etc, but the belt its self is in perfect condition and is still under tension, so thats not snapped or stripped its self.
is there anything special that needs to be done when changing the belts that could have caused a fault in whatever vvc system is used on this engine, or is it just coincidence that somethings gone wrong so soon after the balt was done?
