Hi there,
Sons partner driving car, stalled/cut out apparently and coasted to a stop.
AA called and said cambelt has gone and towed it to home address :(

Is that likely to be terminal, as in valves and pistons meeting together or is it fixable ?

Terminal yes definate bent valves

fixable also yes though as you can either buy a good head or strip down and replace the valves in the one you have a good used head probably quickest option though or even a whole used engine !

BEFORE you do anything though i would check they are correct as the recovery services generally dont put much effort into checking things.

...cambelt snapped... :( gloom. Been there not nice. Can you tell us how many miles the vehicle had when the belt snapped? I know mine will need doing soon, and think 80k might be the time although I realise any time soon is the right time.
