    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Design

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : lots !

    Default 1.8 VVT Cambelt - Interval & How ?

    Looking at this, there seems some discussion as to interval - 40K or 60K ?

    Secondly, despite searching, I can't find a how to - anyone done one ? I'm not shy of doing it, but want to know how and what locking tool I need.

    I've done 1.6 & 2.0 Ecotecs before, but never the VVT.

    There is a 'How to' including water pump (I know that is different) for NON VVTi engines, but I don't know how they would differ. I can't say it would be beyond the wit of man to do the job and write a 'how to'?

    Not in the uk it isn't.

    One could argue of course if the belt went at 50,000 miles, then the life of that engine is over as the valves, guides, and possibly pistons will be trashed.

    The recommended change interval for the 1.8 is:-

    Z18XE engine is 6 yrs / 60,000 miles (whichever comes sooner)

    Z18XER engine is 10 yrs / 100,000 miles (whichever comes sooner)

    See a previous post of mine for more info:

    I fully agree with you. Providing an engine is looked after it will last indefinately. Neglect changing the cambelt at the specified interval and it will only last the lifetime of the belt.

    Misinformation such as "The belt is designed for the life of the engine (160'000 KM)" is when the trouble starts - especially if someone actually believes it.

    Sorry let me clarify. All engines have a engineering design brief, for the Family 1 Gen 3 (includes the Z18XER) this is 160'000KM / 10 Yrs. This means there will be an expected fail rate < 5% at this distance / time so of course many vehicles in the field will achive much greater distance.
