Sometimes diagnosing a fault on a car is straightforward.
At Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic we have a lot of experience and we don’t like guessing but in this instance it was quite easy to diagnose the suspected fault.
The call came that the vehicle would not start and it was duly delivered to the garage.
Our first step was to turn the key and see what happened. The vehicle turned over, but did not start and hearing the way the engine “spun over” led us to suspect that the belt has “jumped”.
Investigating further, we noted that the auxiliary belt was missing and knowing these vehicles intimately, we realised what had caused the cam-belt failure.
Removing the cover confirmed our suspicions. The cylinder head had to be removed and the engine rebuilt. Once completed, the vehicle was back on the road.
Remember a poorly maintained vehicle is a breakdown waiting to happen. Come to the experts at Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic.
