    Default 1.9 cdti 120bhp, cooked !!!

    signum cdti 120 (54 plate, 41k miles !!)
    Driving home yesterday when the coolant level low indicator flashed up on the dashboard ... stopped and checked the level..fine..carried on down the road, then it flashed up again, so i pulled into a garage. Checked the coolant level again...everything seemed fine.
    10 min down the road...there was a squeeking/hissing noise (the noise increased/decreased with engine speed) from the engine, then she overheated, red light came on, so i instantly pulled over and switched off.
    Smoke was coming from the left side of the bay, with a strong smell of burning.
    Any suggestions guy ? Im thinking water pump ???

    cheers

    sounds like coolant system has sprung a leak somewhere - you can often find coolant residue (white?) sprayed out from the leak.

    got the timing belt cover off today !!!!
    Cam Belt is blistered, right plastic pulley is almost burnt away.
    Cant actually turn the engine over by hand which is very worrying.
    I think maybe its because the belt has melted onto the plastic pulley, and water pump pulley....fingered crossed.
    Im going to cut the belt off tomorrow ...... 40k miles on this car !!!!!!!!!!

    This seems to be a common problem.
    Has anybody had any luck claiming from Vauxhall ?? or insurance ??
