Your car’s cambelt – or timing belt as its otherwise known – is one of the most important components found under the bonnet, as it works to keep the engine running smoothly. As a moving part, the cambelt will deteriorate over time - so knowing when it needs to be changed is vital to help your car run at its very best for longer.
The industry recommendation
Generally, it is recommended that a cambelt is changed every 40,000 to 60,000 miles. However, variables such as vehicle age and model type can impact on the lifespan of the item, so if you’re unsure whether the timing belt fitted to your vehicle needs changing, it pays to contact the experts. It’s also worthwhile to make sure your aftersales provider checks the cambelt during a regular service, as failing to spot an issue could mean costly damage to the engine should something go wrong.
Choose the experts
Although certain vehicle components such as bulbs and spark plugs can be changed yourself, it isn’t recommended that you try to replace a worn cambelt yourself. For an experienced technician this simple task can be completed quickly, and it’s relatively affordable when you approach a reputable name.
