A cambelt, or timing belt as it is also known, ensures the correct synchronisation of an engine's internal mechanical rotating parts. Hidden behind a cover, the cambelt is guided around the pulley wheels and tensioners and links the crankshaft to the camshaft(s).
The belt revolves at 1000s of revolutions per minute, withstanding extreme mechanical and thermal stresses, so replacing the belt and tensioners at the scheduled intervals is essential maintenance. Failure to follow the manufacturer's recommendations can have costly implications.
To find out when to have your car's cambelt replaced, please call us with your vehicle age and mileage and we will advise if a replacement is required.
If your car's cabelt breaks or slips then the correct synchronisation of your engine's crankshaft and camshaft(s) is lost. Consequently, serious damage to your engine's internal components can take place as your engine's valves and pistons collide. Repairing the engine is expensive and in extreme cases fitting a new engine is the most cost effective solution.
