The hidden menace

You’ve possibly never heard of a timing belt or cambelt but if it fails, the likelihood is that your engine will suffer damage resulting in a bill that could run in to the thousands.

Fortunately timing belts are designed to last tens of thousands of miles, albeit how many miles depends upon your make and model of car. We would strongly recommend you check next time you have your car serviced as to when your timing belt should be replaced.

Like most things with cars and vans, a little bit of preventative maintenance can keep your vehicle on the road and more of your hard-earned money in your pocket. Every vehicle and engine is different so don’t hesitate to call so we can look up your specific timing belt replacement interval.

Not replacing your timing belt at the manufacturers suggested intervals could cause the belt to fail resulting in a costly new engine – we have seen it happen many, many times!!
