hi,
got the cambelt etc done by the garage last august,had it towed back to the same garage and he checked the belt and said it was ok and suspects a broken camshaft although its not been stripped yet.just after some ideas to confirm if its just one of those things or if it could be cambelt etc related.the motor has done 217,000 miles but has always been serviced regardless of cost.

my 2.4 lost some teeth off the cam belt (it was under 60,000 but 5 years old) and slipped causing the valves to hit the pistons this then broke the cam into 3 and smashed some tappets. i would ask to see the cambelt when it comes off. it wasnt quiet when it happened:(

I had a head re-build and just over 12 months later

Belt was fine. We put it down to a cheap camshaft.
