    Default C4 2006 Hdi 1.6L Timing belt Interval

    Hi All,
    Have read many articles on the net and am very confused at this point.
    1. Peugeot Australia recommend 180,000kms assuming the C4 is the same PSA motor as the pug 1.6 with same long life belt.
    2. Citroen in the UK recommend 193,000kms in harsh conditions
    3. Berlingo's have a 200,000km interval
    4. Citroen changed belt suppliers and the new suplier reduced the interval times.

    The vehicle I have purchased has 128,000kms, I would leave it till 180,000kms if I could know the truth behind it all.
    Regards Snooze

    I'd play safe and do it. You don't know where it's been. But there are differences between the European recommendations and those in Australia. Ateco (Cit) often differs from Sime Darby (Pug) as well for the same engines!

    I have a French C4 document which says:
    Remplacement de la courroie de distribution

    Remplacement tous les 240000 km ou tous les 180000 km en usage intensif ou tous les 10 ans en cas de faible kilomťtrage annuel
    It depends on "intensif"

    It's worth noting the Peugeot Australia 180,000km or 9 years interval is the "arduous conditions" interval.

    I'd be more than happy to leave an HDi belt for that long. Based on what I've seen, I'd be somewhat less inclined to leave a coolant pump for that long though

    Are HDi water pumps any better than the shoddy plastic petrol ones?
    Regards,

    Simon

    Ateco swapped sime darby citroen for ssangyong. So Ateco now has ssangyong and sime darby now has pug and cit

    That was the point being made. I have Citroen service record books from both distributors and Pug ones from S-D and they give different service recommendations for the same engine.
