Re: help urgently needed

Could the cam belt have been tensioned incorrectly causing the pulley to fail? Did you buy the car privately or from a dealer with a warranty? What year/model of car did you buy? Catasrophic failure in 3 months with full history shouldn't happen, but they do . If you bought from a dealer it might be worth having a chat with Citizens Advice but if you've bought privately, unless the service records had been falsified you don't really have a leg to stand on.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
