The cambelt (or timing belt) turns the camshaft at the correct speed to make the valves in the engine cylinders open at the right time. The cambelt is a hard-working component and eventually will wear out and need replacing. Different manufacturers recommend different intervals for replacing this part – you can find out this interval in your service manual but if you’re not sure, get in touch with the team at AJD Auto Repairs Ltd who will be able to help and advise.
It’s really essential not to leave it too long between replacements because if they are left to wear out completely, they can snap and cause extensive damage to your engine. Bring your car into AJD Auto Repairs Ltd in Dersingham, King's Lynn, for a cambelt check.
