Why Checking Your Timing Belt Could Save You Money

When it comes to car servicing, Timing Belt or Cam Belt replacement is without doubt the most important serviceable component of your car’s engine. Not only does it carry out an incredibly important job controlling the camshafts in your engine and keeps it running smoothly, but if left unchanged and it breaks, it can cause serious damage to your engine and cost hundreds if not thousands of pounds to repair.

When comparing the cost of a Timing Belt change in comparison to repairing the damage that a slipped or a snapped Timing Belt can cause, the question of whether to change your belt really does answer itself. 

It is important that you know the change interval of your Timing Belt as going over the manufacturers’ recommendation can lead to a slipped or snapped belt.  We recommend that you follow your car manufacturers change interval, but don’t forget the belt itself is made of perishable material, so if you have any doubts about the condition of the belt itself or when it was last changed get a professional to check it out.

A new Timing Belt can provide you with hassle free motoring and more importantly, peace of mind.
