The Timing belt (cambelt) is a very important rubber belt which makes the drive from the crankshaft to the camshaft which is timed so that all the internal parts of your engine go up & down in the right sequence. If this belt fails it can cause extensive and costly engine damage.
The Timing Belt (cambelt) that has been fitted to your vehicle is given a strict manufacturer’s Replacement Schedule, which is when a certain mileage or time limit is reached, which ever comes first.
As the recommend mileage of most manufactures is getting higher they recommend that the Timing belt is replaced as a KIT, which means that the tensioners are changed at the same time and also if the water pump is driven by the timing belt then it too should be replaced.
We at Knox Motors will be happy to advise you when your timing belt should be replaced.
