Randy :

I will be glad to assist you.

JACUSTOMER-ky94idwl- :

Great. Can you give me the answer please.

Randy :

Yes. Give me a moment to pull up your vehicle.Specified cam belt change important. Water pump and thermostat should be checked at same time as access is expensive if replaced separately.

JACUSTOMER-ky94idwl- :

Thank you.

Randy :

Holden recommends replacement of the cambelt at 120,000 km.

JACUSTOMER-ky94idwl- :

Many thanks ... car I am looking at had it done at 62,000kms for some reason ... on that basis next one at 180,000kms should be fine?

Randy :

Yes. There are a lot of manuals that recommend different mileage, and some say every 5 years regardless of mileage. Holden recommends between 100,000 and 150,000 on some of their other engines. Most Toyota and Mazdas are around the same. Good Luck with your car!

JACUSTOMER-ky94idwl- :

Thanks for that.

Randy :

You are welcome!
