The cambelt went on my 180 last night the shell is not in bad condition, about 57000 miles on the clock. Trying to decide if its worth new engine or cutting my losses and buying a new car. What am I looking at?

ouch

any idea when or if belt was changed previously?

what year is it?

They say 60k or 6 years iirc

Mine has done 72k but had the belts done in 2010 at 30k, so technically over due :evil:
