First of all, I would like to thank you for your effort to answer questions.
Secondly, I would like to ask about an issue that I had with my Peugeot 407, 2007 Model. I was driving the car when it suddenly stopped. I tried to restart the engine but with no success. I took the car to the dealer and they mentioned that they are suspecting that the “ cylinder head valves struck and locked the piston, in this problem timing belt and other connected parts completely damaged”. However, I am not quite sure if the problem can happen in this order or the timing belt get damaged first and then cause other parts to be damaged.
The timing belt was replaced by the dealer in July last year and the car has not done more than 20,000 kilometers since that. I am concerned that the dealer is trying to avoid responsibilities with regard to the timing belt, hence, they are saying that the cause of the failure is something else which eventually caused the timing belt to get damaged.
I would really appreciate to get a detailed description of the above scenario if it can happen as mentioned by the dealer.
have the same problem?
