How many km before I must replace my cambelt and tensioner on corsa B 2002 1,4i. driving short distances


100.000 klms is the recommended distance
the destroyer of belts is oil so when replacing the belt , idlers , hydraulic tensioners and crank and cam shaft seal should also be done as well
if there was signs of oil in the cover , reduce that to half the distance

Jetta TDI Coolant leak from behind tming belt.


hi from uk from the symptom/location you say water leak is coming from ? this is most likely to be the water pump that is leaking ? considering age/milage ? this is not uncommon however as the water pump is driven by cambelt this unfortunately means you will have to replace the cambelt and tensioner as well as the water pump it is policy never to use old belt/tensioner once disturbed for obvious reasons i'm sure you have heard stories of result of cambelt failure? and the serious damage caused to engine ? also if leak is serious? this will deteriate c/belt so advice you consider renewal asap cambeltkit +tensioner in uk casts approx under £45 and w/pump a little less you can obtain from most good motor factors/superstores avoid dealers this job is not too difficult diy with haynes or w/shop manual if you follow instructions and have tool kit hope this helps?

CAMBELT FAILURE ON A RENAULT MASTER DCI 120 2004 MODEL, IS THERE LIKELY TO BE ENGINE DAMAGE?


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.

Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999:


Going by your description I think it could be something different, I would have the brake master cylinder checked, if you are suffering brake failure and shuddering it sounds like your callipers arent getting equal pressure when you apply the brakes. Or a freat lack of pressure to suffer brake failure. I hope this helps.

Internal oil leak, change the spark plugs and cables, oil, filter and add Lucas oil. Take the car for inspection and let me know how it goes. For the belt depends where you get the parts and who does the work.

Waterpump failure. Rattling and water leaking. Do I just replace waterpump, or do I go all out and replace cambelt and tensioners, timers, seals etc


I'm not sure about Audi 80's, but on A4's you have to pull the whole front of the car off (bumper, headlights, radiators, radiator support panel - the a/c radiator just moves out of the way thanks to long rubber hoses, so not discharge/recharge necessary), but then you get fantastic access and it's really not that hard a job (an hour give or take).
If you are going this far, do the timing belt, thermostat and accessary belts. For an extra $100 in parts, you only pay about another 30 mins labour. And if you're doing it yourself - well, you're there anyway!
If getting done professionally, go to a VW/Audi specialist as they will have the specialist tools necessary for the job - a regular garage WILL NOT!!
