Cam Seal and Alt Belt Replacing

4 posts in this topic

So after last service I noticed that oil on the garage floor via mechanic, coming from CAM Seal area.

So now going in for that to be checked and replaced and at the same time the Alternator belt will be replaced as it has "cracks" appearing that means it is wearing out.

Seams the parts are cheap, it's the labour that is going to cost as involves locking the engine.....blah blah

OMG......Mechanic went to town on my car and my hip pocket :\

So he ended up replacing the Alternator belt, VVT front seal, blank plate(?), Cam seals, Cambelt KIT(current was not OEM and only done 100K...said it showed wear marks only had 30K left so replace at same time?).

Also the Breather box kit was replaced as he said it was blocked?

Intake manifold gasket and a second hand temp sensor(seem to replace this every second service and no indication to me faulty as he claims?

Labour was $605AU

Total $1480....half the value of the car?
