Once an Alfa Romeo garage recommended cam belt change as soon as 25 thousand miles if driver is heavy footed

Re: Service intervals

Hi. The engine is a 1.5. The car is a recent purchase and a stop gap as the previous Laguna 2 was "TBoned" by a woman on her mobile phone. I am just keen to ensure that all is up to spec. for the time that we have the car.

Re: Service intervals

Didn't know that the Lag3 came with a 1.5 but live and learn.

Don't forget that timing belt intervals are calculated two ways and use whichever comes first.

Was always 70K OR 5 years but Renault seem to be stretching the time to 6 years now and I've seen some sites say up to 9 years.

However, as you have a 6 year old Lag, if belt not been changed, I would say time to do it.

Re: Service intervals

Drove a 1.5dci before I opted for 2.0dci the 1.5 wasnt as sluggish as I expected ...I have found some fast fit places will do an oil filter change using good oil for about £50 so I do mine every 6months

It is easier to take it apart than to put it back together

Re: Service intervals

Thank you for the info. Most useful and I am beginning to get some very good feedback to my questions, as well as some daft comments about invalidating my insurance if I immobilise the alarm when on the ferry with 2 dogs in the car!
