|06 2.0 Chain cam? - MrMazda|
A review of the 2.0 l Kia Magentis (2006 on -) states: "2.0-litre Theta petrol engine (Europe) - Petrol engines start in the European line up with Kia's all-new 2.0-litre Theta engine, a four-cylinder 16-valve unit with a die-cast aluminium block and a plastic cylinder head cover and intake manifold.
It features continuously variable valve timing to optimise low and medium-speed torque plus high-speed performance and economy. The valve gear is chain-driven to minimise maintenance requirements and cut noise, while auxiliary systems are powered by a serpentine belt."
This car isn't listed in the Chain -cam FAQ, I assume the above means it is? Does the "serpentine" belt need to be changed at a prescribed interval?
I am thinking of buying a 2012/62 Skoda Superb. It has the 170PS diesel engine. Please can you tell me if this engine has a timing chain or belt?
I have read the reviews but I need your opinion. Skoda Yeti or Hyundai ix35? Which is more reliable?
I am about to choose between a Golf TDI 90 PS and a Polo 75 PS TDI, but am concerned about reports concerning DPF problems with the Polo in particular....
