Cars Q&A

I have a skoda Octavia 2007 model 1.9 tdi and has reached 61000 Kms ,these days there is noise of a belt from the engine into the cabin,and when we had given it to the service center they said that we have to change the timing belt and cost Rs 60000 and if it gets cut its gonna cost 2 Lakhs is this the true cost or is the service center cheating??? Or should I go ahead and change it?

ya absolutely right its better to change the belt as soon as possible if timing belt will break you have pay that much money because all the timing of the engine fuel injection and pistons will stuck it will effect the vehicle very badly if it brocken you have to make another engine full work and it will effect all the engine perfomance you got before so be pratical for small cars belt only cost 3000 butif it will broke it may cost 30000 thousand you can enquire in any work shop

Expert`s comment:

Timing belts are to be replaced in scheduled interval.Else if the timing belt gets broken,it results in related damages and engine has to be replaced.Hence its always recommended to replace timing belt at scheduled interval.

Check with the zero's that they have offered you, 60000 for timing belt is too high.. and if its only timing belt its again high.. check it before your car stands still
