Most vehicles today have a cambelt. A cambelt is used to drive the crank to the camshaft in perfect sequence. Each vehicle manufacturer recommends a replacement interval for the cam belt e.g. mileage/years.
At Avondale Motor Engineers Ltd we can replace any cam belt on all car makes and models and small commercial vehicles.
The cambelt replacement interval is one area of vehicle maintenance that should not be overlooked. When a cambelt breaks it can cause damage to the engine which can be very expensive to repair, but very few engines are unharmed when the cambelt breaks.
The most common reasons for cam belt failure are:
- Engine low on oil
- The belt incorrectly tensioned
- Age deterioration
- Auxiliary belt colliding with the cambelt
When the cambelt is being changed Avondale always advise the replacement of the tensioners and the guides.
