Cambelt Replacement

Cambelt Services

Cambelt replacement or timing chain replacement is an essential part of car servicing. Cambelt is responsible for maintaining the timing of the pistons that move rapidly to make a car engine run. Without proper timing, you risk the valves hitting the pistons and seriously damaging them. The amount of damage depends on the engine but it can have serious consequences for your car. A broken cambelt can cause some serious damage to your vehicle often resulting in an undrivable piece of metal sitting in your garage.   As a timing chain is an integral part of running a car engine smoothly, it is often replaced within the mileage window, which is somewhere around 90,000km for most cars. At ZOYZ Auto Service we recommend replacing your cambelt according to the manufacturer’s guidelines.

How do I know if my Cambelt needs changing?

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.

How often should a Cambelt be changed?

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.

How much does it cost to change a Cambelt?

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.
