Hello, Ive had my gto for approx 8 years I havent driven it that much in the time althought i drove it to Scotland and back. Changed the ECU once when it burnt out, I replaced the 3 capacitors ran nicely for a couple of months then one day I put the key in the ignition turned it on and smoke came up and everything went dead. tried to find out why 1 know the blow out was from ECU terminal 101-103 which is the active aero Im thinking it was the soldering when changed the caps, any way i digress.
The real question is I always drive only reving to about 3000 generally because i dont know the exact mileage and am scared the timing belt might break although it looks ok with no cracks or anything but still. I wantt to know if its a hard job or not and if you can do it with the engine still inside the car. I have look many times and it seems a bit cramped inside the engine bay. I not a mechanic but am mechanical, never replaced a timimg belt but have done heaps of research on it. I was thinking that I would line up all the marks then mark them again and lock the heads cams into place with 4 spanners, 2 together, mark exactly where the cam shaft is then remove and replace the belt. I checked the internet and the prices range wildly, some belts are more expensive than kits with all the tensioners with it. Id replace all the belts at the same time. I am thinking to disconnect an engine mount and then jack it up a bit just for better access. The AC pipework is in the way
