If your Cambelt (Timing Belt) or Timing Chain fails, your engine will stop! Cambelts (often referred to as Timing Belts) or Timing Chains are an integral part of your vehicle’s engine which controls the timing of the engine’s valves. If this belt fails, the engine will most probably seize leading to expensive repair bills or in some cases damage that is uneconomical to repair.
All vehicle manufacturers recommend an interval when replacement of the Cambelt should be carried out. This interval is defined by both age and mileage, for example, a vehicle reaching 5 years of age or 60,000 miles whichever comes first.
We are often asked: My vehicle maybe 5 years old but has covered only 23,000 miles should my Cambelt be replaced? Or, my vehicle is aged just 2 years but I do a lot of traveling, it has covered 63,000 miles, is it due for replacement?
The Answer is: Yes in both cases.
At The Servicing Master, we offer a competitive Cambelt replacement service where we use only quality replacement parts which meet the original equipment specification.

Don’t run the risk of costly repairs! pump feeds the engine with a constant supply of coolant from its radiator, which helps keep it at a constant temperature and in turn ensures that all parts run smoothly.
So a water pump leak or another failure can quickly cause your engine itself to fail completely. The result – a very expensive, and inconvenient, repair job, or even the need for a new car.
We may have seen huge improvements in engine materials and technology over the years, but it remains as vital that your car water pump properly circulates coolant through the engine block as it does and that you keep the oil level in your engine topped up.
Although the water pump for cars, vans, and SUVs will last a long time, the components are by no means indestructible. It’s quite possible for a water pump leak to develop, and this will soon result in damage to other parts of your engine – and potentially huge expense.
