Wondering if anyone has any input on this...
My beloved 172 is currently in the garage because of a nasty engine noise somewhere in the depths of the lump. Im wondering whether anyone has experienced any problems with cam belts (the car has only done 18,000 miles!!) as this is what the garage thinks might be wrong. Doesn’t seem right to me, especially as the sound was more metallic.
Frankly I’m worried that the garage can’t find the problem, and so are guessing that replacing the belt might solve it (at my vast expense, as warranty doesn’t cover this I imagine).
