My Kia Carens CRDI 03 plate, 80,000 on the clock, died yesterday whilst only traveling along at a steady 40mph.
Suddenly a thud/thump like we had been rear end shunted, dash warning lights on and power steering gone, ignition off, clutch in straight away, coasting along, hoping for a safe place to pull off the busy road.
Thought the cam belt that had been replaced last year had snapped, but no all intack.
No visable signs, but when put in gear and rocked, the cam didn't budge..........AA to the garage awaiting the verdict.

Been a very good motor since we bought her Three years ago, regular services, do hope she can be fixed without having to donate a kidney!!!!!!!
Thoughts?
Maybe better option to seek out a later model, if I'm faced with a large bill for fixing...........?
Cheers Rick.

Camshaft snapped? Engine seized? Lots of possibilities, let us know how you get on.
