The cambelt on your vehicle is a rubber belt that controls the timing on the vehicle . It performs a function that ensures that you cam shaft and crank shaft rotates in sync.
Unfortunately your cambelt needs replacement , just like other vehicle components.

Its best to ensure that your cambelt is replaced every 90 000km or 5 years.

Sometime the cambelt makes a noise while driving , this mostly happens when the vehicle is started or when the engine is still cold .

If there is a issue with your cambelt , your vehicle may not start at all. This is because without the cambelt the camshaft will not rotate at all.

Another way to ensure that your cambelt is still fine is to have a look at it yourself , if it is worn , looking like it has a glaze or even if it looks glossy , be sure that you have it checked out by a professional .

The most logical prevention is to regularly have a maintenance check on your vehicle , if your regular service centre technician advises you to have the cambelt replaced , its best you take his advice, a replacement will save you a lot more money than a repair .

A cambelt breakage can cause a lot of damage to your engine , it usually results in a cylinder head recondition due to bent valves .
So rather safe than sorry – get your cambelt checked.
