    Default New to vectra c forum

    Hi,

    Just got myself a 03 Vectra GSI 3.2 v6.

    I cant believe how fast it is. Goes like stink!!

    Needs a few things to get it A1

    Just wanting advise on cambelt:-

    its covered 122k but not sure if its had cambelt changed?

    Does anyone know of anyone who does cambelt changes in the North west (Warrington) and prices to get it done?

    Cheers

    If you ever want to meet up and get some snaps of the cars let me know... at moment mine is on axle stands, just changing rear top suspension arms as bushes have got. What a pain it is.

    Yes that would be good m8, you'll have to let us know what you like to be called by ..... Doddy ?
    As Soulman said re cambelt, it has almost certainly been done, BUT you got yourself a bargain there and if it were my motor, unless I had a receipt for a documented cambelt change at a sensible recent mileage, I wouldn't trust myself and I would get it done.
    My water pump went on my old V6 Omega and took out the belt. I was "lucky" to o nly have to need 4 valves replaced but it cost me the best part of £1000 and the loss of use of the car for a week to get it rectified.
    I had my last cambelt done on a VecB 2.5 v6 by a couple of really clued up V6 specialists in N.Wales. Both ex Vx engine development guys and fairly well known on the forums, I'd be happy to pass on their contact details if you pm me. Excellent pricing, and they have ALL the correct tools + the knowhow. I'm sure there are many others, but I actually used them and give them 10 Stars.
    Cheers
