If your Cambelt (Timing Belt) or Timing Chain fails, your engine will stop!
Cambelts (often referred to as Timing Belts) or Timing Chains are an integral part of your vehicleâ€™s engine which controls the timing of the engineâ€™s valves. If this belt fails, the engine will most probably seize leading to expensive repair bills or in some cases damage that is uneconomical to repair.
All vehicle manufacturers recommend an interval when replacement of the Cambelt should be carried out. This interval is defined by both age and mileage, for example a vehicle reaching 5 years of age or 60,000 miles whichever comes first.
We are often asked: â€˜My vehicle may be 5 years old but has covered only 23,000 miles should my Cambelt be replacedâ€™? Or, â€˜my vehicle is aged just 2 years but I do a lot of travelling, it has covered 63,000 miles, is it due for replacementâ€™?
The Answer is: Yes in both cases.
At Hendrie Graham Motor Engineers we offer a competitive Cambelt replacement service where we use only quality replacement parts which meet the original equipment specification.
