We can professionally inspect your timing belt to see if it needs changing, and we provide replacement services for very reasonable prices. A timing belt, also known as a cambelt, is an essential part of your engine which synchronises the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft. This is so the engine’s valves open and close during each cylinder intake and exhaust stroke. If your vehicle is due a component replacement, get in touch with us today to book it in for a convenient time for you.

When to Change A Timing Belt

Timing belts are very durable and usually last a very long time, however they usually need replacing every couple of years but this will depend on the make and model of the vehicle. We can inspect your car, so give us a call today to book it in with our team. The belt can stretch and become worn over time, which will cause the timing of your engine to become delayed and not in sync. As a result, this will affect the performance and reliability of your engine and could also damage it. Your timing belt will not be checked as a part of a regular MOT, so you will need to keep an eye on any warning signs. There are various signs that show a worn or snapped timing belt, including:

  • Very noticeable clicking or rattling noises coming from your engine.
  • Lack of or no power.
  • Slow pick-up.
  • Misfiring engine.
  • Rough idling.
  • You may also get a warning light on the dashboard.

Timing Belt Cost

If you need a replacement, the timing belt cost will depend on your make and model of car, as well as whether the old belt caused any damage to your engine. We always keep our prices competitive, and we only fit parts of the highest quality.
