LDV G10 2016: Does it have a timing chain or belt?

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Feb 2020

There were three engines offered in the 2016 LDV G10, Brett; a turbo-petrol, a non-turbo petrol and a turbo-diesel. Here’s the answer to all three possibilities: Both the two-litre turbocharged petrol and the turbo-diesel use a timing chain. The 2.4-litre non-turbo petrol engine uses a timing belt.

The timing belt will need replacing at regular intervals while the timing chains should be good for the life of the vehicles they are fitted to.

LDV G10 2016: Blowing white smoke

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Feb 2019

Service intervals are specified as either/or, it’s whichever comes first. Your service is due in August, or at 30,000 km if that comes first. White smoke would tend to suggest a problem with the turbocharger. Turbochargers have to have clean oil to survive; dirty oil will kill them eventually. You need to negotiate with LDV, if you haven’t missed the service by a long way you might be able to get some help on the cost of repairs; otherwise you’re unlikely to get much assistance.

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Apr 2018

There are so few LDVs out there it’s hard to say how reliable they are, but we know the iMax and Carnival are good. I would go for the Carnival.
