A BROKEN CAMBELT (also known as timing belt) USUALLY MEANS AN ENGINE REPLACEMENT OR MAJOR WORK – MAKE SURE YOU AVOID THIS!
A cambelt or timing belt is needed for your engine to function. It is the runner belt which synchronises your vehicle’s crankshaft and camshaft(s) rotation and spins at 6000 to 8000rpm in order to make sure the engine’s valves efficiently open and close as required.
Over time your cambelt will crack and stretch as a result of wear and tear, engine heat and weather conditions. If the cambelt breaks it can cause major damage to your engine, pistons and valves, usually requiring a very expensive engine replacement. In order to avoid this, most manufacturers recommend replacing your cambelt every 50,000 to 80,000 miles.
It’s important to adhere to these intervals as cambelts start breaking internally well before the damage will show on an external inspection. We keep track of cambelt changes for all our customers but if you don’t know when your cambelt was last changed it is worth replacing it, as the cost of a damaged engine is far higher.
If your cambelt fails, it is also recommended to replace the water pump at the same time.
