If the belt breaks it will do untold damage depending on where the engine is at the time.
Assuming it is not a HDi. The interval is 80,000miles or 10 years for normal conditions and 48,000miles and 5 years for adverse conditions.
You need to take into account the type of use, If you spend 3 hours a day cruising on the motorway the belt will suffer far less than if your around town in stop start traffic.

Most cam belts need to be changed every 60,000 miles. I would change again somewhere around 126,000.

Definitely. If you're lucky then only the valves are damaged and that can be repaired by removing and overhauling the cylinder head. The water pump will and cambelt tensioners will also need to be replaced as they're relatively cheap and if they fail after repair the cambelt must be removed again. If you're unlucky then the piston crowns have been damaged or even the cylinder liners and this requires a complete engine rebuild. If only the valves are affected then the engine can usually be successfully repaired at a reasonable cost, but it's vital to get the head checked for cracks and flatness before reassembly as the stress on the combustion chambers and valve guides caused by a belt failure can warp or crack the head.

If time is money for you, then it may be cheaper to fit a good used engine. Note that there are no cheap "reconditioned" engines regardless of whatever worthless guarantees are offered. If you go for a reconditioned unit then if you're in the UK make sure that the engine supplier is a member of the Federation of Engine Remanufacturers (FER). Don't just rely on the logo on signs and stationery, actively check with the FER as some dodgy outfits have no qualms about claiming to ber members when they're not.

A good used engine will cost around £160 or so, make sure that you can hear the engine running before it's removed from the scrapped donor vehicle. It's cheap, but a risky choice and you'll need to add the cost of an immediate precautionary cambelt and water pump change.

A "reconditioned" engine means nothing. It might only have been degreased, repainted and had an oil and filter change. Recon is often a con.

A remanufactured engine will have been cleaned and then carefully tested before being largely or even completely dismantled. It's then rebuilt to precise tolerances using new or remanufactured parts. Expect to pay around half to two thirds of the cost of a brand new engine; they're not cheap but they are far cheaper than a new engine and will be supplied with a really worthwhile time/distance warranty.

I hope that you get your van fixed soon and that the damage isn't too serious. If my reply has helped then please return the favour by rating my answer.

How can I change language from Japanese to English on PANASONIC car navigation system CN-DV5500WD? I just bought a Peugeot 206 automatic, 2002 model from japan


I don't think you can on that model. Alot of JDM does not support ENGLISH. even if you do the navigation may not be usable or up datable for outside Japan and if you are in N. America the radio station stepping is different. Probably be easier to replace with a unti designed for your market and sell that unit back to someone in japan.

I have a 206 peugot 10 years old, i have been strongly adviced to change fan belt when mileage hits to 70 000, so i was just wandering how much and is it really worth it?


you mean the timing belt i presume ,ten years old low mileage but its the age ,the belt may be ok but take the top part of the cover off and look at the belt ,if you can the shape of the teeth showing on the back of the belt then change it as they only cost 16euros for the petrol engine and they are very easy to change done one yesterday andf it took me all of 20mins .

Check the alternator belt for proper tension. Also check alternator voltage output. If output is low the rest of the systems can fail.
