Cambelt Repairs Preston, Lancashire From North West Autocare

Cambelt Repairs

North West Autocare carry out timing belt replacements and cambelt repairs in Preston, Lancashire and the surrounding local areas. Unlike the other mechanical components of your vehicle, cambelts are prone to natural “wear and tear” over prolonged mileage and / or periods of time.

In the interests of safety and engine maintenance, it is vital that the cambelt of your car is replaced when necessary. ¬†With this in mind, we recommended all customers to ask us for a free “cambelt inspection” when booking their car in for a service.

What Is A Cambelt?

Typically made from rubber, a cambelt (also known as a timing belt) plays a direct role in the opening and closing of the engine’s valves. Engine valves enable fuel to enter the engine, where it ignites and produces exhaust. Subsequently, it is important that a cambelt operates in a smooth and efficient manner to keep the engine operating correctly.

How Often Should A Cambelt Be Replaced?

This heavily depends on the type of cambelt, as well as the make and model of your car. The majority of car manufacturers list their recommendations in the car’s operating manual. ¬†Should you be unable to find this information, we would advice you to call us today on: 01772 314 873 and speak with our technicians.

What Happens If A Cambelt Breaks Or Fails?

When a cambelt snaps, it can cause major damage to both the valves and pistons of the engine. It can also damage other expensive components of the vehicle, which may lead to an entire engine replacement in extreme circumstances.

Fitting A New Cambelt To Your Vehicle

At North West Autocare, we ensure all cambelt replacements are completed to the strictest of standards. We make sure the cambelt isn’t too tight or too loose, to stop the belt wearing out or snapping prematurely.
