    Default Cam belt and Service

    I have just given Laris,a Vectra it,s service, Oil, oil filter, fuel filter,air filter, and the Cambelt was due for changing too, so I changed that, and as a precautionary measure I changed the cambelt pullies and adjuster and also the waterpump, as they can give up on you and cause no end of damage, so with having to remove the waterpump I have put new antifreeze in as well, Did not take too long either, so Larisa is very pleased and I am too, just got to clean the engine tomorrow thats all.

    Great work Ed, you must feel pleased with yourself that you did this yourself (and not quite a light in the wallet).

    I did it all trade prices.. excuding the oil to which I had in the garage for less than £ 100. the labour was free of course, but I might charge myself a bottle of wine and see it off tonight.
