[ re cambelt change ]
many thanks for your sound advice. after which Im coming round to the
idea of keeping the bx / by the way its a diesel bx17 tgd/
Well, being a diesel, if the belt does break it will scrap the
cylinder head, as for doing the job yourself - have you ever changed
a cambelt yourself before, if not whet anyone else says that
particular PSA engine either needs special tools or someone knowing
exactly what they are doing. Get it wrong and at best the engine wont
run, at worst, BANG - new complete cylinder head...
As for extending the change period, unless you can afford another
car, the extra repair costs or can survive without a car for how ever
long personally I wouldn't - also, remember that on top of any repair
costs if the belt breaks you'll also have the vehicle recovery costs
to pay of you're not a member of the AA etc.
Not what you really wanted to hear I suspect.
