Hi Guys, i have a problem with a corsa c, was driving and took a turn and the car just died out, heared a snapping sound but the cam belt is still intact can you advise what to check?, my cousin stripped the cam cover off and says that it looks like the tensioner is gone it moves when turning the engine could that cause the stall?
