    Default Cam Belt Change Intervals

    Hi

    Can someone post the cambelt intervals for 1.8i Petrol and 1.9 CDTi (Z19DTH)


    I thought the Z19DTH = 100,000 miles or 10 years

    How long will you go before getting it replaced though?

    Denzo,

    I'd be a brave man to leave any belt to that mileage..Remember when VX extended the change interval to 80K. Warranty claims were thick and fast..

    I wouldn't leave a belt on my car past 36K..If you change it yourself SEALEY do a locking kit for the pulleys etc for £90.00

    You are totally right, the 1.9 cdti has a chain as opposed to a belt that just requires periodical checks, although after a while it will need links taking out to keep in the correct tension range as it stretches with age/use.

    I didn't realise the 1.9cdti was a chain, is that the 8 & 16 valve engines?

    I thought it was a belt also. Are you certain it's a chain?


    If so I hope it doesn't suffer the blocked oilways problem that the b had. A few engines were shafted by that.

    1.9 CDTi is 100,000 or 10 years, I am at 52500 miles now. Not bothered though, it if goes before 100,000 miles then vauxhall get the bill. Simple as that.

    I checked with trading standards about this, they stated that if Vauxhall state 10 years or 100,000 miles then they are guaranteeing it will be OK during this time.
