    2000 (W) Reg Mk4 Astra 1.9 Dti Cambelt

    Hi everybody, this is my first post on here! Just taken over ownership from my Dad's old W reg Astra 1.9 (2ltr?) Dti and apparently the timing/cam belt hasn't been done yet and it has 230k miles on the clock!

    Does anybody know the best place to get the correct kit for the Astra? I've looked on eBay but I've had no luck, as I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking for!

    Any help would be much appreciated!
    Kind Regards,
    Jonny Jones

    whats the vehicle reg - i can then find out the right kit for your needs


    If its the 2.0 model (only 1.7 & 2.0 were used in the Mk4) then it will be a timing chain. Longer intervals than belt but still 230k is quite a bit more then usual!!

    2.0 DTi has a lifetime chain on so far as I know, however what 'lifetime' means is anyones guess!

    (Meant chain, should know given we have one of these engines now!)

    All Astra G/Zaf A with 2.0 Diesel X20DTL, Y20DTL & Y20DTH used a timiing chain as i mentioned above

    Just trying to establish which model he has and indeed if it is actually the 2.0 Derv


    Most belt equipped models are generally speaking 40k miles, the Twinport petrols used a stronger wider belt and were in the reigon of 60-80k, all the others are chains and most advise to change them after 100k/10ys whichever is first
