    Default Is my cam belt fitted ok

    Had my cambelt changed last week as the water pump was leaking so for the second time had new cambelt kit done. Had work done at a local garage as been recommend to me, so my question is how will I know if it's been done properly as years ago had a cambelt done on my old vectra b and fitted wrong and the engine blown up ? Will it sound ruff or drive different.
    Car is 1.9 cdti 150 16v 2004 hatch.

    probably not! The only 1 sure fire way is to check the belts timing & tension, but surley you would have taken it to somewhere you were happy about them doing it?, checking the job isnt that much work but a sealy locking kit would prove it for sure!.

    Found a water leak so had to get into garage asap as needed car back next day as family going away for week . And this small garage did go out off his way to find falty water pump and fix it the same day. Told him to fit new cambelt kit at same time as 30,000 miles since last belt change, done about 500 miles since fitted, probable just me being paranoid.

    you dont seem to be having much luck with water pumps!, If they didn't put sealant round the bolt threads & a little on the studs, then the pump will leak!,
