Car Timing Belts & Cambelts Service
What is a timing belt?
A number of vehicles are fitted with timing belts, also known as cambelts, as opposed to timing chains. A timing belt is an integral part of the internal combustion engine that synchronises the rotation of the crankshaft and camshaft. It is critical in preventing the pistons from striking valves.
Engine timing belt replacement
- Replacement intervals vary from 4-10 years and are also mileage dependent.
- Engine timing belt failure is much more costly and inconvenient to the motorist than timing belt replacement.
- Where applicable, it is recommended that you replace the timing belt kit together with the water pump and auxiliary drive belt. Doing so will avoid unnecessary future repair of these inter-connected parts.
