Cambelt ChangeKeep everything in time

Why should you get your cambelt replaced?

The cambelt (also known as the timing-belt) is one of the hardest working parts in your engine linking the crankshaft to the camshaft ensuring all major components of your engine are synchronised.

This is because the cambelt in constant use. Your cambelt is subject to a great deal of wear and tear and overtime its exposure to other contaminants such as rain, ice, hear, grit and salt cause further deterioration to its rubber construction.

If you do not get your cambelt changed before the recommended interval you risk the belt snapping as (shown in the below video), resulting in collision of engine components. This damage to the engine can be both substantial and expensive.

When to get your cambelt changed?

Water pump

On many models the water pump works very closely to the cambelt and tensioners as it pumps the coolant around the engine. Therefore replacing the water pump at the same time as the cambelt reduces the risk of the pump failing. A defective water pump may not only leaking coolant fluid it can seize which will result in the engine overheating and causing damage to engine components which can be costly.
