    Astra 1.9 CDTi Design help

    Hi all after driving Fords for a while I have decided to change to a Astra 1.9 CDTi Design estate as I have 2 german sheppards.

    Just a little questions are they cambelt or Chain ???

    the 1.9 CDTI is belt driven. It's very important to get it changed every 40,000 miles / 4 years at the latest because the water pump is prone to breaking-up which results in a trashed engine.
