Toyota Aygo - cam belt or cam chain?
Our friend has a 2012 1.0-litre petrol Toyota Aygo. She wants to know if the car has a cam chain or a cam belt, as it has just reached 70,000 miles on the clock. Can you help?
This engine uses a timing chain. It should last the life of the car (as long as the oil is kept clean and changed every 12,000 miles or 12 months). But I'd recommend getting it checked by a qualified mechanic at the 70k mark as the chains can stretch or come loose if the car maintenance has been less than perfect.
