Cam Belts / Timing Belts

When to replace a cambelt/timing belt

Simply put, a cambelt and timing belt are the same component.

A cam belt/cambelt/timing belt is one of the most vital parts of your car’s engine. It keeps the camshaft in order and handles operations like the opening and closing of valves – maintaining timely combustion. Not addressing a worn belt in time can cause catastrophic damage to your car.

One of the major benefits of a car timing belt is that it’s much quieter than a chain. However, without any audible warning, it’s not obvious when a belt becomes worn.

For preventative maintenance, your best bet is to follow manufacturer instructions. The range for when to replace a timing belt can vary drastically – from 40,000 – 100,000 miles. If you’re approaching the advised belt replacement point – Contact us to discuss the options
