The timing belt, also known as the cambelt is responsible for synchronising the crankshaft and the camshaft. As the inlet valves open, the engine takes in air and expels toxic fumes at a specific point within the cycle. Traveling at a constant speed around pulleys, the timing belt moves in a regular, formulated motion. To ensure a fully-functioning cambelt, it must be maintained at the correct level of tension. The tension pulleys are responsible for maintaining the optimum tension level, which is something that should be checked regularly and replaced if you detect a fault. If the belt is too loose, there’s a chance it may flap about which could result in the premature opening of the engine valves. Alternatively, too tight and the cog bearings will endure excess strain. As well as the tension problems, cracks, shredding and a squealing sound are also signs that your timing belt needs replacing. Either one of these symptoms can cause the cambelt to snap without warning, so carrying out regular maintenance checks are vitally important. Alongside many manufacturers, we recommend that a timing belt change happens every 60,000 miles. Within our range, you’ll also find a great selection of timing belt kits to help with your repair.
