Your vehicle's timing belt is a critical component that deserves your attention. At Charles Hurst Peugeot, we offer expert timing belt replacement services starting from just £499. Maintaining your timing belt in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications is essential because, over time and with mileage, it can deteriorate. Let's explore why your timing belt matters and what can happen if it breaks.
What is a Timing Belt?
A timing belt, sometimes referred to as a cam belt, is a resilient component crafted from a rubber-based compound reinforced with nylon. This seemingly unassuming belt plays a pivotal role in the inner workings of your engine. It acts as the vital link that synchronizes your engine's moving parts, including the crankshaft, camshaft, and valves.
Consequences of a Broken or Failing Timing Belt:
The repercussions of a timing belt failure can be severe and costly. If the timing belt breaks or fails to maintain the correct synchronization of the engine's components, it can lead to:
Valve Damage: The valves within your engine may collide with the pistons, causing extensive damage. Valve repair or replacement can be a costly affair.
Piston Damage: A failing timing belt can lead to piston damage as well. This can result in a significant reduction in engine performance and efficiency.
Cylinder Head and Cylinder Wall Damage: The impact of a broken timing belt can extend to your engine's cylinder head and cylinder walls, necessitating extensive and expensive repairs.
In extreme cases, the damage can be so substantial that it warrants a complete engine replacement.
