The cambelt (or timing belt) is one of the essential components of your engine, so in case you’re at all uncertain whether it’s time for a replacement, book an appointment with our Mechanics in Dandenong today!
Why should you have a cambelt replacement service performed at Dandenong Mechanic?
Avoiding a cambelt replacement can result in complete engine failure.
A worn or stretched belt can disrupt the operating order of the valves and pistons, which can result in a piston hitting a valve and damaging the engine.
Cambelt failure warning signs include rough idling or difficulty starting the engine.
Cracks on the belt, which is made of reinforced rubber, are an indication that it may soon break.
Replacement of your cambelt will help keep your engine performing as it should and make sure you prevent costly future repairs.
During our replacement service, your belt will be replaced and synchronized with the crankshaft and camshaft to restore proper operating precision and order. It is widely recommended that you have your water pump changed during a cambelt replacement service as well.
If your water pump fails later, it can do great damage to your vehicle. Since the water pump is easy to change during a timing belt replacement, consider having a new one installed at this time.
Referring to your owner’s car manual will help determine the appropriate service intervals for cambelt maintenance.
