Cambelts

What Is A Cambelt?

A cambelt or cam chain, also known as a timing belt or timing chain, is a fundamental component of your car engine, connecting the crankshaft to the camshafts and regulating the combustion process. A cambelt is made of rubber, whereas the chain is metal links, yet each performs a near-identical function. Both should be routinely changed to prevent issues.

Timing Belt Replacement Intervals

Timing belt replacement intervals vary depending on the make and model of your vehicle. There is no set time it must be carried out, but manufacturers offer strong recommendations. This guidance is generally reliable unless your mileage is particularly high, and is also something a prospective buyer will hope has been followed. We are happy to advise you on when you should be looking to change your timing belt. Simply give us a call with your registration and we can let you know when it is due.

Do You HAVE To Replace Your Cambelt?

Over time, our vehicle’s components will begin to wear and need to be replaced. In some cases, we may choose to wait until parts fail before we arrange repairs. However, the cambelt (or chain) is not one of these parts! When a cambelt fails it leaves a considerable amount of damage in its wake. You can certainly expect broken valves and buckled pistons, but the entire cylinder head and engine block could also be destroyed. In a best-case scenario, you will need an engine rebuild; worst case, you may find yourself prematurely shopping for a new set of wheels! So, while it is not a legal requirement to get it changed, it is certainly in your best interest.
