    What engine? The Z16XE and Z18XE should ideally have the cambelt done at 40k/4yr intervals as far as I know, not sure on other engine models.

    According to the original service manual the cambelt (at least on the models above) was down as an 80k interval, but lots of cambelts were snapping around the 50-60k mark so they brought it down to 40k/4yrs. Given it is very common to fail it really is worth changing - often worth doing the water pump at the same time given you have to take the cambelt off to change it.

    didnt hear that. but deffo do the water pump, as when the tension is put back on them the bearing breaks up and leaks,
