Cambelt/Timing Chain

Timing Chain Repair Wigan

PoolStock Clutch Center Wigan repairs timing belts/ timing chains for all makes and models of cars. A snapped Cambelt can be catastrophic for your vehicle and your wallet. Contact us now if you have problems. Common signs of belt damage include engine ticking, ignition failures and engine oil leaks.

A timing belt, distribution chain or timing belt is part of an internal combustion engine that synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft.

What happens if it breaks?

When the timing belt snaps, they collide with each other, which causes bent valves. The most common damage to the cylinder head and the camshaft and possibly damage to the piston and the cylinder wall. Although it is possible that the broken belt of an interference motor will not cause damage, such a case is unlikely.

When should I change the cambelt?

The expected life of your timing belt depends on the configuration of your vehicle and engine. As a general rule, we recommend changing the belt to 60,000 miles.

A distribution chain is a metal chain as opposed to a rubber timing belt. The chain is inside the engine. The chain must be lubricated by the oil in the engine so that everything converges. Each time the engine is used, the chain is used. Connect the crankshaft to the camshaft.

Do you have to replace?

The chain runs in the engine. The chain must be lubricated with engine oil. A toothed belt should usually be replaced between 40,000 and 100,000 miles, depending on the vehicle. A timing chain only needs to be replaced if there is a problem.
