More info about cambelt replacements
The cambelt, also known as the timing belt, is a critical component of a vehicle's engine. It is responsible for synchronizing the movement of the engine's valves and pistons, which allows the engine to operate efficiently and safely.
The recommended interval for cambelt replacement varies depending on the make and model of the vehicle, as well as the type of engine and driving conditions. Generally, it is recommended to replace the cambelt every 60,000 to 100,000kilometers or every five to six years, whichever comes first.
The cambelt replacement process involves removing the old belt and installing a new one. It is also recommended to replace other related components, such as the tensioner, idler pulley, and water pump, at the same time to ensure that the entire system is working optimally. This can prevent costly repairs and ensure that the new cambelt lasts as long as possible, and can avoid having to work on the same part of the engine again in the future.
