    Ask about the water pump - if it hasn't been changed yet it could probably do with it, and you have to disassemble the engine to get at it, so may as well do it all at the same time

    I phoned the dealer when I bought mine the other day to ask when the cam belt needed changing and they said 80k on the Z19DT and 100k for the Z19DTH - which I believe is the 150 bhp version that I've got! Were they lying to me?!?

    Last time I was in there was a poster on the service desk saying that ALL cambelt changes should be at 40k.... Could well be a money spinning exercise by them, but it's good practice nonetheless.

    That doesn't apply to the Fiat derived engines. It also doesn't apply to some of the other Vauxhall engines as well. Some of the engines after 2002 for example have 60,000 / 6 year intervals (or even longer periods).

    As regard the Vectra-C intervals:-

    Vectra-C (02-05)




    Vectra-C (2006-)
