Timing Belts

Timing Belts

What does your timing belt do? Your timing belt, also known as a cambelt, is an essential part of your car. Here’s why you need to keep it in good working order.

The timing belt in your car is made out of tough rubber with grooves or teeth running along the inside edge. The belt controls the opening and closing of the engine’s valves by turning the camshaft and crankshaft at the right speeds. Timing is everything: once your belt shows signs of wear and tear, it will prevent all the parts of your car’s engine from working in sync.

This could end up seriously damaging your engine. 

It’s important to remember that timing belts are NOT checked as part of your regular MOT.

The belt will have a ‘life’ or a mileage, again it will vary considerably by manufacturer, refer to the owner’s manual for guidance or give us a call.

If the belt snaps, the car can suffer catastrophic internal damage caused by the valves and pistons banging into each other.

The car will be immediately immobile, so on top of costly engine damage, you’ll also have to cover a recovery fee to the nearest garage.
