    Cambelt

    My car passed it's MOT today. It's done 93,000miles and hat it's cambelt changed at about 50,000miles when I bought it! Just one question does the Cambelt need to be changed again? My dad it should be done again at 80-90,000, and wondered whether this is right or not? Also how much would a head gasket be for a 1.6 16v 98S Reg Astra (x16xe engine i think!) be as mine is on the way out?

    You wanna be getting a Genuine GM Cambelt kit (either from Vauxhall or ebay - Vauxhall if u get trade discount), a waterpump from AutoVaux (ideally a waterpump should be changed with cambelt) and get it all fitted at an independent garage.

    All these should come in at less than £300

    BTW your engine will be X16XEL and not X16XE

    GM Timing Belt kit is part number: 93183572
    Waterpump part number: 9192797
