Timing (Cam) Belt Repairs & Replacement in Aldershot
A timing belt (also referred to as a cam belt) is a crucial component within your car’s engine – if it completely fails, you won’t be going anywhere and it could result in significant damage to the engine.
The timing belt rotates the engine’s cam and crankshaft in sync to ensure each cylinder fires at the appropriate time. It’s typically manufactured out of high-quality rubber with nylon reinforced cords inside to extend the life-span of the belt. However, it is put under incredible force inside your engine so it will need to be replaced at some point in your car’s life.
The most common symptoms of a failed timing belt are…
- The engine making a load ticking noise
- The car failing to start despite a full battery
- The engine misfiring (not firing on all cylinders)
- Oil leaks from the front section of the engine
With timing belts, prevention is significantly better than a cure.
