help urgently needed
Hi. I bought a used Renault 3 months ago which had had every service when it was supposed to, always used top notch fuel and had the cam belt changed in 2009. The car has not even done 140000km and the motor has blown. No
leaks but the crankshaft pulley had been disintegrated which in turn knocked out a few others and a valve had gone. The Renault started making a knocking sound when the pulley came away and at first we had been told that the pulleys would only need fixing but obviously these were symptoms.
Can anyone tell me why this may have happened when there was no warning and the car has been meticulously looked after? Also, the car still had another 1000km left before next service.
