    Vehicle : Vauxhall Astra-J

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTi

    Year : 2013

    Default

    The 1.9 CDTi's (which is a Fiat derived engine, btw) have a cambelt.

    It was only the older 2.0 and 2.2 diesel engines that had chains, in the diesel range of engines.

    Official change is:

    Z19DT (the 8 valve engine)
    04MY 6 yrs or 80,000 miles (whichever is soonest)
    05MY 10 yrs or 100,000 miles (whichever is soonest)


    Z19DTH (the 16 valve engine)
    10 yrs or 100,000 miles (whichever is soonest)

    But it's recommended to change the belt (and waterpump) way before that as the water pump has a tendancy to prematurely fail and take the belt with it.

    According to my service book my car (2004 model cdti 16v) is 8 years or 80k whichever occurs first.

    Vehicle : Golf 7

    Trim : GTD

    Engine : 2.0 TDI 184PS

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 40000

    Default

    All 1.9CDTI's are belts for the timing, and personally I wouldn't let it go past 60k.

    Bought mine with 86k on only to find it hadn't been done. Told the dealer that according to the service book it states 80k not the 100k they told me and they've posted one out to me. Getting it done next Weds along with the water pump. The joys of working at a garage, timing belt and water pump for £60! Winner!
