Not all engines use the same type of Cambelt/timing belt, as some engines have timing gears instead.
The Cambelt / timing belt is a critical part of your engine, which works to maintain engine valve timing by synchronizing the pistons and camshaft. The belt resembles a thick rubber band, with grooves that align with the crankshaft to allow the camshaft to turn. When your timing belt doesn’t work properly, your engine has a difficult time functioning. Sometimes these belts slide off or tear, which causes the engine to halt and can damage it irreparably.
While you’re there, let us perform a Check, which includes a visual check of the following items:
If the Cambelt Breaks
It is important to keep your timing belts in good working order to maintain engine health and the overall health of your vehicle. The rubber material of the timing belt can tear, warp, and become damaged over time, making it unusable. It should be replaced every 80,000 miles to 100,000 miles by a professional licensed technician.
