What Does a Cambelt Do?

A cambelt, also known as a timing belt, regulates the combustion process by synchronising your crankshaft and camshaft. In turn, these open and close the cylinder valves. This means that a cambelt problem can be disastrous for your engine.

Your car can’t work properly without this toothed belt. Your engine parts will smash together more than 100 times a minute which would cause irreversible damage.

That’s why you need to look after it properly and book a timing belt replacement when your car needs one.

 

How Do You Know Your Cambelt Needs Changing?

You should book a visual inspection for your cambelt if you notice any of the following warning signs:

  • A slapping or grinding noise
  • Your engine cuts out and won't turn over when you turn the key
  • Your car won't start, accompanied by a clunking noise from the engine
  • Rattling or high-pitched sound while your engine is idling
  • Your car leaks oil
  • A glazed, glossy cambelt underside
  • A cracked or fraying cambelt

Any of these warning signs could indicate a serious problem with your cambelt. To avoid endagering yourself, your passengers and other drivers, you should book an inspection to find out what's wrong as soon as possible.

 

Reasons For Needing to Book a Timing Belt Replacement

There are several reasons why you might need to book a timing belt replacement, but the main cause is old age. Every timing belt has a distinct lifespan and it is likely to snap when it reaches this mileage.

Other reasons that you might need to book a cambelt change include:

  • Misalignment. A misaligned cambelt is one of the main causes of failure and is usually caused by uneven or excessive wear.
  • Under-tensioned belt. This causes uneven wear and excessive noise while driving.
  • Damaged belt. A worn or damaged belt can significantly reduce the lifespan of your timing belt.
  • Debris. Dirt can rub on the belt, reducing its effectiveness, and oil can attack the belt materials.
  • Water or oil leaks. These can cause the belt to slip and slide, reducing its effectiveness.
  • Not driving your vehicle enough. The cambelt can stiffen if left too long which weakens it. If your car often sits idle, you may need to replace the cambelt more frequently than if you drove the car regularly.

While these problems can be caused naturally, an ineffective cambelt change can also lead to extra problems and expense. That’s why you should always choose a reputable garage for your replacement.
