Why replace your CAM belt

Posted on Saturday - 21-Jun-2014 03:40:41 Pacific/Auckland
Most car owners are blissfully unaware of the fact that a cam belt plays a vital role in the smooth running of a car. Cam belts keep the internal components of your engine turning in a synchronised order.
If a cam belt breaks, it can practically destroy the engine of a car and cost you an arm and a leg to fix it. A cam belt generally needs to be replaced every 100,000kms or 5 years, whichever comes first.
Nick Young, the owner of Autoland, North Shore has seen a lot of cam belts break and knows how expensive it is to fix it. A typical repair as a result of a cam belt failure can be between $3000-$4000. Which is why he recommends that you get it regularly checked. “Like any other part, cam belts wear out eventually, so it’s a very good preventive maintenance to replace your cam belt.
What’s even more impressive is that we use Gates, the world’s most powerful synchronous belt drive system, which is in a class of it’s own!  Check out our replacment specials.
