Full Version: CAM BELT CHANGE + General questions on streetka
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Ford Models > Ford KA / StreetKA Club
I have just bought a 03 streetka it has 41k on it and i was wondering

1. when the belt will need changing ?

2. how much will it be ?

i'm getting it seviced any way as its a car for my wife and I want to make sure its safe.

3. what is the best oil to use in car ?

4. where is the best place to buy parts for car ?

5. what is the best thing to treat roof with ?

thanks for any help and advise you can give
to answer a few of your questions

1 if i remember right the streetka has the 1.6 endura 8v engine which is chain driven
2 any good quality 5-30 oil will be ok
3 there are plenty of online parts providers for ford like fordparts uk
4 its best to do the roof with a two part system,one to clean and one to protect,companies like autoglym sell this
hope this helps
Hi and welcome to the club

If you look in the service book it should give you a mileage and year for the cambelt/chain change. If mintalkin is right about the chain driven engine then i know this normally last longer than a belt but i believe it is more expensive.

Oil as mintalkin says any good 5-30 will do.

What kind of parts are you after?

There are quite alot of soft top cleaners out there for you to choose from but having never owned one i cant say which is the best i'm afraid.
