A Stitch in Time saves Nine - Cambelts and Timing belts
When it comes to servicing your vehicle, one of the most important components to ensure if in top condition is your car’s cambelt.
The cambelt’s main job is controlling the camshafts in the engine and keeps it running smoothly. Knowing the signs for when it needs to be replaced can save you hundreds of pounds and save your car’s engine from severe damage.
A snapped cambelt means your engine will cease to function causing damage to the valves, lifters, pushrods, pistons, and as most oil pumps run on this belt oil starvation can cause bearing damage – in other words total engine just for a belt. So not changing your cambelt will be a false economy.
We recommend this handy site that lets you know when your timing belt is likely to need replacing:

"Great prices, great service. Don't take my word for it, pop along and have a look, about time we had a decent garage in Peterborough. Clean tidy and very well presented, seem to do everything to do with cars... well done Concorde. Left car for a service and walked around Dobbies while it was done, although many people sat watching their cars being repaired through the HUGE viewing windows. This has it all, in a great area of town."
