What is a Cambelt?
A cambelt is also known as a timing belt. Its purpose is to keep the crank and camshaft in time with each other. Cambelts can last a long time but will usually need replacing after around 40,000 – 60,000 miles. Over time the belt can stretch and become worn meaning that the timing of your vehicle’s engine becomes delayed. This will affect the performance of the engine. If you think your timing belt needs replacing, call us to book your vehicle in for an inspection.
What Happens If a Cambelt Breaks?
If the cambelt breaks the engine will sustain serious damage. This is because the pistons inside the engine will collide into the valves within the cylinder head which can cause irreversible damage to the engine.
How Can I Tell If My Timing Belt Needs Replacing?
There are various signs that your timing belt needs replacing. They include the following.
- Noticeable clicking, ticking or rattling noises coming from the engine
- Misfiring engine
- Rough idling
- Lack of power
- Slow pick-up
