    Engine : CDTi 150

    Year : 55

    Default timing belt

    Advice please on when the timing belt needs to be changed on a vectra CDTi 150, ive read manufacturers say 100,000 miles (seems a lot to me), other peeps av said 50,000.

    I would greatly appreciate any constructive advice on this matter.

    Mileage : 000

    I would go for the lower milage, with the damage that can be done with a broken belt it is well worth changing it well before 100.000. I thought that VX recomended 80,000 then changed their mind and made it 40.000, that to me is more realistic. I would recomend you change the water pump too and the adjuster and pully,s too.

    Have there been any reported failures of the Cam Belt on this engine, or indeed the water pump/tensioner/idlers before the 100,000 mile point. . . .? It would be interesting to know what Alfa and Fiat say, as it's their engine - JTD 16v i think......
