The cambelt & timing belt is located in front of your vehicle’s engine. It is made of a strong rubber material which includes cords that are nylon-reinforced. That way, the timing belt’s lifespan can be preserved.
While the timing belt is moving inside the motor, it is placed under a lot of stress and tends to wear out quickly for this reason. As a result, you will have to replace the timing belt on a regular basis determined by the car manufacturer.
If you let your timing belt get worn out and you don’t replace it, you can cause a lot of expensive damage to your engine. Before it happens come to chat with trusted auto mechanic Browning Auto Repairs.
You should replace this belt every five years OR 100,000 kms; whichever comes first. Don’t neglect to have this done, even if you have not been driving far, because your warranty company won’t cover you if your timing belt is over five years old.

If you want to prevent your engine from further damage, shut off the engine immediately once you experience this symptom and there’s a chance you may avoid major engine damage.
There are several important components that should be replaced when changing a vehicle’s cambelt. These include the water pump, the camshaft seal, the crankshaft seal, the belt tensioner, and the cambelt idler.
It is advisable to replace these components at the same time as the cambelt/timing belt. The main reason for this is that the majority of the labour needed to replace the components will already have been done when the cambelt is being replaced.
