    Default Cam-Chain Change 2.2???

    Hi All,

    What mileage should they be changed at?

    When itís been done with the upgraded kit how often should it be done?

    Anyone know the best place to get the kit from and cost?

    Going to have a look at a 2.2sri tomorrow, its done 36.000 miles full SH from Vauxhall, of course the garage says it neednít be done, but I trust all on here who say it should,

    Thanks

    Hi and thanks for that,

    do you know how often once it has had the upgraded kit with the bigger jet, seems to be a big issue with this engine

    Everyone keeps saying that they need doing or youíre asking for trouble, have I misunderstood?

    was thinking if I have this car I would have to do it straight away?

    are these the same engines as the 2.2 fitted in the Vec B?

    Have you been happy with your 2.2 anything to look for tomorrow when I go to see the car?

    Yes, and the MK4 Astra 2.2...

    Well if your wanting to change it at 30 odd k, are you gonna do it again in another 30...

    I'd leave it to be honest. But like any stories. should you not buy the 2.2 direct in case the pump goes, or the cdti and there stories...

    Full history you say so i'd buy it...............

    Not wanting to change it if there is no need, thought it was a big issue on this engine, if I get it I donít want to leave it till itís too late,

    whats the accepted mileage for it from people who have one?

    Oh and thanks to everyone so far
