A cambelt (timing belt) is a vital part of the engine. It is a ribbed, rubber belt which controls the timing of your vehicle's internal combustion engines. It ensures that the crankshaft and the camshaft rotate in synchronisation.
Your cambelt will need changing at some point. We would advise it to be checked if you have owned your vehicle for 5 years or driven over 40,000 miles. Alternatively, your vehicle manufacturer guide will provide you with a recommended cambelt schedule.
After some time, a cambelt can crack, tear or snap. You will be able to notice when it needs a replacement from the following signs:
Ignoring the maintenance of your cambelt, can result in a mechanical failure and huge repair costs.
A snapped cambelt can result in the vehicle timing being delayed which will cause the crankshaft to crash into the cylinder head. This damage can be irreversible.
