What is a timing belt?

The timing belt is what connects the crankshaft to the camshaft, controlling the timing and order in which the engine’s valves open and close. As one of the most important engine components, it’s incredibly important that you maintain its condition, as if your timing belt goes, all the other timing components will need replacing too.

When to change timing belt

Most manufacturers recommend that you replace your timing belt every 60,000 miles - or 5 years, though this will vary by manufacturer. Timing belt symptoms include:

  • Ticking noise from the engine.
  • Engine misfires.
  • You have an oil leak.
  • Issues with your exhaust, such as more smoke than usual.

If you see these timing belt warning signs, you’re likely to need a replacement. If you’re unsure whether the cambelt is the cause of your car’s problems, then you can get a free timing belt check from Halfords to figure out what’s wrong.
