One of your car’s most essential components to maintain is the cambelt (although some engines use a chain instead). The engine valves open and close at the appropriate moments because the cambelt synchronises the spinning of the crankshaft and camshaft. A cambelt can snap if it is not changed when it should be, resulting in expensive, significant damage.
As a general guideline, you should get your cambelt changed regularly based on the manufacturer’s recommendations of time or the mileage covered (whichever comes first). If you’re unsure, contact Heard Elliott, where we will be pleased to discuss with you the manufacturer’s recommended change intervals for your car and provide you an estimate for completing the work.
