When is your timing belt due?
When it comes to servicing your car your timing belt/cambelt replacement is by far the most important serviceable component of your car’s engine. The timing belt/cambelt has an incredibly important job controlling the camshafts in the engine and keeps it running smoothly, if left unchanged and it breaks, repairs to your vehicle will be costly.
As a responsible car owner it is important that you know the change interval of your timing belt/cambelt. Going over the manufacturers’ recommendation can lead to a slipped or snapped belt. In many cases this requires a new engine or engine build costing hundreds if not thousands of pounds.
