The most common sign that your cambelt needs a replacement is the sound that comes from it when you start your car engine. You might hear a hissing or squealing sound as the engine starts coming from the timing belt. Apart from that, you can also tell that your timing chain has worn out by a quick visual inspection. If there are signs of tear and dry cracks, it might be time to bring your hoopty to a car service shop.
While the timing chain needs to be replaced at least once during the lifetime of a vehicle, it is recommended by experts that you should start considering looking for a replacement after your car has run 90,000-100,000km. From a standard driving mileage, it comes to be around 4years of driving time. Apart from this estimate, if you are a serious driver and have covered more than the average distance with your car, it is more likely that you might need a cambelt replacement sooner than later. A quick visual check would let you know the state of your time belt.
A cambelt replacement includes carefully taking out the mechanical parts that entangle the belt and removing it from the car’s engine architecture. This process costs around $180-$200 in Auckland. Many owners shy away from this cost but the fact that makes them come around to a replacement is that a broken cambelt can cause irreparable damage to your vehicle and may even render it unusable.
