    Anyone got a link to a site to check timing belt intervals?

    I can't seem to find a UK one on google.

    Took about 2 seconds to find. Google this: 'Gates timing belt interval chart'

    Its the second link in the result set to the pdf document which downloads and hence I can't post the link directly; opens in Adobe Acrobat; lists all the cars and when the belt is due.

    The same engine fitted by different manufacturers can have different intervals for timing belt changes as well.

    The 1.6Hdi PSA diesel unit has a 150,000 mile, or 10 year interval when fitted to a Citreon or Peugeot, but only an 80,000, or 8 year interval when fitted to a Ford.

    Same engine, same kit.
