    Default Mileage for cam belt change??

    Hi all,
    I was wondering what the mileage would be for the above?

    Ive been told it would be 60,000 miles or 6 years. Its for the 1.8 VVT?

    thanks.

    Mark

    P.S sorry if this is in the wrong section!

    It was 80,000 for the z18xe, but they reduced it for the later vvt version.

    The 1.8vvt is 100,000 miles or 10 years and it dont drive the water pump like the old one so you dont need to worry about that

    As the man said its 100,000 miles or every 10 years (whichever comes first), however if your car is subject to a lot of short journeys (under 5 miles) then personally I'd look to renew the cambelt after 5 or 6 years tops.

    Oops - just rechecked my sources and found that it was 100,000 for the original z18xe, then dropped to 80,000 for the later z18xe (this is still pre-facelift on the Vectra C). Then when the VVT version came out it rose back to 100,000.

    However, I did find a note saying it should be inspected every ECOflex service (so about every 2 years) to assess it's condition. Take off the cover and have a look at it - if there are no cracks or worn bits, then refit the cover and don't worry about it. If it shows some sign of wear, think about changing it at the next service. If it's got big scuffs and lots of cracks, think about changing it in the next month
