The Timing Belt, Also known as a Cam Belt is a rubber belt that connects the Crankshaft and Camshaft (Top and Bottom) of the engine together and keeps them working in perfect syncronisation. The Timing Belt ensures that the valves open and close at the correct time. If a Timing Belt happens to break it can cause complete engine failure.
All Manufacturers have different recommended intervals for replacing a timing belt and it is important that this is adhered to. If you are unsure if your belt needs changing please call in and we can check this for you. We are able to look at the recommended service schedule for a timing belt and also determine if your timing belt needs changing.
When we replace a Timing Belt or Chain we replace the full kit including the Tensioner, Water pump and any Guide Pulleys. We also flush the coolant and do a general health check of other components in direct vicinity of the Timing Belt.
