My 1994 Coupe's Cam Belt decided to break as I was on the M25 yesterday and I need to find out how much (approx) it will cost to fix and if there is any likelyhood that there will be any damage to valves/pistons etc.. I live in Reading, Berks. :liebe011:

sorry to hear that mate- how many miles had the belt done?is it 8v or 16v engine?
as for cost to get the engine repaired you best be sat down when the bill arrives!!
this happened to a mate of mine a couple of years ago the engine suffered only two bent valves and a broken rocker cost to repair fully was around a grand
i had it happen to myself back in the eighties with an almost brand new XR3 was only doing 30mph when it happened total cost to Ford- a brand new engine and gearbox!!!

as for damage to the engine (in my experience and limited knowledge) it could be virtually nothing or a total write off- im sorry mate

let us know how you get on may have a few spares kicking about that may help i'm not far from Reading
