    confused Cambelt or Chain

    Hello,

    I am really confused. Some garages (including local Vauxhall dealer Marshall) told me that my 1.9 Cdti 150 has a cambelt (due to be replaced soon - I have done 98k miles) some others say the car has a chain which "will tell" when is due to be replaced from its noise.

    Can anyone help please?????

    Many thanks

    Vehicle : Vauxhall Astra-J

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTi

    Year : 2013

    Default

    The 1.9 Fiat diesel engines have a cambelt.

    Official change recommendation is 100,000 miles (80,000 miles on one of the 1.9 engines - can't remember which) , but most change a lot earlier than that as the waterpump can prematurely fail and trash the engine.

    EDIT - just found the info

    Z19DTH (150 bhp 16v engine)
    10 years or 100,000 miles.

    Z19DT (120 bhp 8v engine)
    04MY 6 years or 80,000 miles
    05MY 10 years or 100,000 miles.

    Your car has a cambelt yes. And intervall for change in norway is 150 000 km (94 000 miles) so its time for a change on your car.

    Make sure you replace the kit & water pump, not just the belt
