I can't find any information on the Timing Belt/Chain on the Rover 75 2.5V6 engine.
Can anyone tell me if it is a belt or a chain, and does it need changing at 4 years old, or when?
Many Thanks in anticipation,
GPa.

It's belts, three of them, and they need changing at 6 years or 90k miles, whichever comes first. Not a cheap job at all (£800 plus at dealer) but if you can get to Coventry then member on here Lates can do you a good deal.

Only a rumour MikeM, good deals dont exist - the best ones do if you know where to shop :stir: ;)
That's what I'm banking on Lates :) I work on the principle that if you get the best price then ask them about the better one still ;)

Have you just bought one of the countless V6's cropping up on Ebay or Autotrader with around 90K on the clock and now in need of a very expensive service?

That seems to be around the mileage people sell them on and leasing companies move them into the auction houses

I bought the cam tools last year Keith as you say 75/zt's were coming to that time in their life where rep wagons are getting to 90k and private cars were near 6 years old.

See the local area forums for my cambelt experience and costs in Australia. A proper job is more important than a bargain price.

Couldn't agree more, do not go for the cheapest go for the best and if its the cheapest then its a brucey bonus :)

Timing Belts

Thanks MikeM, you've told me what I wanted (needed) to know; that means I've got 2 years to save up, - or move to Coventry!
Thanks again, GPa.
