We can carry out cambelt repairs as well as timing belt replacements in Louth and it’s surrounding areas. The cambelt is one part of an engine that will become naturally worn out after many miles of driving. If a cambelt breaks then it can cause major (sometimes irreparable) damage to your engine, so it is important to keep it in good condition. It is normal for a car’s cambelt to be replaced periodically, your car’s manual will often advise the frequency for this to happen.
What does a cambelt do?
The cambelt in a car is usually made from rubber, and plays a very vital role in the working of an engine. It is directly involved in the opening-closing motion of the valves in your engine. These valves allow fuel to enter the engine where it is combusted and produces an exhaust. As such it is vital that this component is in good working condition. If the cambelt fails the worse case scenario is that the engine becomes completely damaged and will need to be replaced in it’s entirety.
