Re: Service advice & Cambelt change - 156 2.0TS
the service interval is miles OR time, which ever comes first. Old cambelts crack and weaken even without mileage so service it yearly anyway if your mileage is low. The cheaper workshop if its reputable would seem the obvious choice, just dont give the car stick until you get the belt changed. (it may break at low revs anyway but at least it stands a chance in gentle driving)
Keeping the oil tooped up to the max mark seems to have a bearing on this too, if the variator runs dry it may drag on the camshaft...leading to premature belt breakage??
