The cambelt is an essential part of your vehicle and in not replacing this at the manufacturers recommended guideline could result in catastrophic engine failure. The cambelt is also know as a camchain. It is common for drivers to overlook this part of the vechicle as it isn’t visible. Another reason for it being overlooked is due to drivers not being aware of key symptomns that indicate a worn down camblet that could snap any time. The problem with cambelts is that they naturally wear down and will require replacement after a certain distance or time has elapsed. Each and every car is also different in the time scales that a replacement refit is carried out.
