Hi Guys,

Ok I pick up my V plate V6 2.5 Auto Club Hatchback on Friday, and the first thing I will be looking to do is check on the cambelt & tensioners (no I have no history with the car - seems good and very cheap).

I know nada and was wondering if there are any tell tale signs that these need replacing before all goes BANG.

Its done 88000 miles

Cheers, everything appreciated, along with any other advice on what to check as a matter of urgency.

I was in a similar situation and had the work done anyway. Then later I found a sticker on the engine block showing the work was done @ 68,000 miles. Ah well, at least it got done I guess.

sticker on the engine block - hmmm interesting. i suppose it depends on who does it.

Ill check when i pick it up.

I would half expect a bit of a rough drive prior to the big bang, but not sure, so was thinking i should just get them done.
