Cam and Timing Belt Replacement
An essential part of maintaining your vehicle is replacing the timing belt (timing belts and cam belts are different names for the same thing). You should have yours replaced every 100,000 km or every five years, whichever comes first. If your car meets this criteria, book it into Perrys Automotive today as the cost and hassle of dealing with a broken timing belt is simply not worth it.
The timing belt in your car regulates the timing of the engine. This prevents valves from hitting your car’s pistons. When the timing belt breaks, the valves will hit the pistons and will cause damage. The cost of repairing that damage – and the time it takes – is far more than the cost of replacing the timing belt.
In other words, it is about being proactive – book your car into our Auckland workshop today.
Is Your Timing Belt Faulty?
Timing belts can go before the recommended limits mentioned earlier, although there are usually warning signs. Those warning signs include:
- Loss of power
- Lower fuel economy
- Engine misfires
- Engine vibration
