  • Cam Belt/Chain Change at 40k?

    Have any of you any idea if the 2.8T needs a cam belt/chain change at 40k?

    Mines just passing 39k....just starting to think about it as the old 2.5 V6 was every 40k...

      Mines just went over 40,000 miles on my GSi was wondering the same as vauxhall say 80,000 miles but have heard a lot of stories of them snapping way before 80,ooo miles and people saying to change it along with the water pump ...

        "The cam drive, variable valve timing and valvetrain components require no scheduled maintenance; the sophisticated cam-chain tensioner, high-quality cam phasing components and hydraulic lash adjusters are designed to ensure optimal valvetrain performance for the life of the engine with no adjustment."

        In other words, on the 2.8T, this is not a service item.
