Should I have my S-Max's timing belt and tensioners changed at 60,000 miles?
My S-Max 2.5T has done 60,000 miles and is due a service at 62,500. Should I get the timing belt and tensions etc changed? Ford recommends 125,000 but I think that's pushing it a bit too far, especially as I would have to underwrite any engine rebuild.
Good idea. Water pump as well. It's a Volvo 5-cylinder engine, and water pumps have failed before, sometimes flinging off timing belts.
