Re: Cam Belt change. Is it safe to drive?
To be honest mate, the chances of it going on the way to the garage are VERY VERY slim, but they still exist.
Ideally, if it IS overdue (Which you claim it to be) you should NOT drive the car at all until the cambelt is done.
Trouble is, some cambelts can go at 54,000 miles and others won't go for the entire life span of the car, its kinda like a pot luck really. But getting it changed is a necessity if you want to enjoy your car without that black cambelt shaped cloud hanging over you.
Ideally, if you can get it towed or trailered to the garage for free that's what you should do, even if it's a hassle.
Because sods law mate suggests that it may go on the journey to the garage.
