I recently had my cam belt changed on my Mitsubishi Chariot Grandis Exceed 2.4 GDI. It seems to be noisier now, a sort of rattle at times and there is an oil leak around that area now. Any ideas to this.

Regards

Mike

If the cam and crank seals were not replaced, they could have started leaking. If thay were replaced, you need to check the installation.

As to the noise, recheck the belt tension, it could have been installed and adjusted incorrectly.

I agree with KHlow, ensure that a new tensioner was installed and that all relevant seals were replaced, oil on the belt may cause premature failure.
