A little more about your Cambelt…
A cambelt, or timing belt as it is also known, is one of the hardest working parts of your engine and ensures the correct synchronisation of an engine's internal mechanical rotating parts.
What should it be checked and replaced periodically?
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. Without this maintenance, the belt can go slack, making it snap or jump and therefore cause severe damage to the engine.
If your car's cambelt breaks or slips, serious damage can be done to your engine's internal components 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.
We'd recommend changing your cambelt at manufacturers recommended intervals. After all, it’s not got the easiest life, what with the weather, temperature changes, oil, grit and salt all taking their toll.

Your timing belt synchronises the movement of the pistons and valves inside your engine. If it breaks or snaps, your engine could be severely damaged.
When performing a timing belt replacement, experts recommend replacing all the parts in the system, including the water pump, to avoid individual component failure and additional maintenance costs.
More and more cars are being equipped with modern chain technology. They last significantly longer than the belts, consume less energy and space in the engine and are usually fitted on more complex V6 and V8 engines as well as the latest downsized 3-4 cylinder engines.
