Hadn't had a chance too look yet. Even if it is rusty I'll be fixing it. No way I'm letting this get away from me

Well it's f*cked.

Drive it down the road earlier. All tw warning lights came on, massive whining from bay, stop pop the bonnet, smoke pouring from the cambelt cover.

Think it's shredded the belt, possible bent valves Sad

Handed the keys to a garage to get it towed and fixed.



Now to find where I put my lube....

Few calls put about and mixed reviews. Might not be the cambelt as it was still able to run. (it drove fine before I noticed the lights, It was my mate that noticed) if it was the belt it would destroy it self and not drive. Could be water pump related or aux belt or alternator lol.

Either way I won't know till tomorrow earliest. I'm just hoping its not new engine time.
I can't afford that shit! Although it would be a good excuse to sort it right out

IIRC it's the water pump on the 6' setup that causes the biggest issues with belts snapping etc..

From the symptoms Matt, I wouldn't think it's slipped the belt and killed the engine.
Could be the alternator, could also be the belt rubbing on something due to a tensioner failing or similar.

Any update yet from the garage?

And if the worst comes to the worst... I may be persuaded to part with my spare engine..... but we will discuss further should it become neccessary to! Smile

Cheers ed Smile no further news, don't think they have even picked it up yet.

Proper gutted as I was meant to be gettin a new wheels tonight Sad

Also checked through paperwork and when cambelt was done it was a "gates kit" and water pump. And was done by a pikey instead of a garage so no warrenty Sad

When was it changed? Gates are good quality so don't worry about that. If it was the aux belt I think you would have seen pretty quick... Unless it shredded and got wound up in the cambelt? Seen that happen before.

Whatever it is, I hope it's and easy (cheap) fix man, I know it's all you need.

Matt from what you told me on the phone earlier, it's not the cambelt. I reckon the alternator has given up the ghost.

If it was the cambelt
1. It wouldn't start again
2. It wouldn't of driven
3. You wouldn't have any warning lights for it
4. I highly doubt there would be smoke unless the belt has started rubbing or a bearing has given up.

From what you described, I think your alternator has gone (have a spare btw ....hint hint).

Thing I don't understand is the lights all going funny; that surely would be electrical-related..?

Do all the dashlights come on when the alternator isn't being charged? If so It may be the aux belt/pulleys are shagged, and the smoke was just coming from the general area of the cam covers?

Either way this is not nearly enough information; go down there, get your ban hammer out and start getting answers young man! I demand them!

Belt was done at 103k it's now on 114k I think alternator maybe shit fitting.

And when I looked into the engine bay the belts were all still attached

Dunno what you're worrying about then, my money's on alternator or pulleys. Definitely doesn't sound cambelt related at all.







Or it could be a kerbside magician has magically fitted a supercharger, explaining the whine, and the smoke was shredded tyres??

It mustve been a Lynx-spec install too, judging by the stalling issue... Just wind the throttle position screw in a bit to open the butterfly up; you'll idle at 1500rpm, but it wont stall when you dip the clutch Rolleyes

Yep will get lights on with bad alternator. I reckon it's that tbh.

Well hopefully it's not the belt then, could really do without that, can see it being a combination of pullys and alternator being shredded

Take the aux belt off and start it again and see if you still get the whine.

The whine stopped anyway. Cars about a mile down the road. Can't be f*cked to go get it or look at it. I have none of my tools either

If its a mile away, take the aux belt off and drive it home. Should make it providing everything that is electrical is off.
