Timing Belt Renewal.

27 December 2014 - 05:07 PM

Hello all,

Have had a look but cannot find the answer!


Wife has a 55 plate 100hp 1.6 petrol. It has done 55000miles.

At what point does the timing belt need replacing on these?


My old Omega's were 50000 miles.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Many thanks



Battery Problem

19 November 2014 - 06:53 PM

Evening all,

I have a 55 plate 1.6 100bhp estate.


Recently when starting it struggles to turn over and I can see a front light coming on from inside the car. The car then starts. It will start no problem a few times and then this problem reoccurs. I suspect the battery, but have never had one behave like this before-perhaps it is a feature of the calcim battery.


Any thoughts before I buy a battery will be greatly appreciated.
