Big Thankyou to Fabio, replaced Cambelt on our Fiesta today, arrived as agreed and completed the work in a matter of hours. Very impressed with the service, which included changing the water pump and ancillary belt in the price quoted, unlike some other garages. All work completed at my home address. Fabio was also happy to discuss other issues I had with the car and suggested probable causes/solutions. Would definitely recommend Motortech, was also given a quote for a Full service on my Fiesta and will be using Motortech again in the future.
I can only endorse the 5/5 feedback that Fabio has previously received. I made contact with regards to the replacement of cam belt assembly for my Audi TT. Fabio responded very quickly with a very competitive estimate. On the day, he arrived on time, carried out the work effectively, was more than happy that I watched (only out of pure interest) explaining to me what he was doing at various times. Once completed, he completely tided the area. We will certainly be contacting Fabio when our cars require routine servicing and/or other work and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.
The cambelt is a rubber belt which controls the timing of a vehicle’s internal combustion engines. It is vital in the process of making the vehicle run smoothly as it also ensures the crankshaft and camshaft rotate in synchronisation.
A snapped cambelt is uncommon however tension issues are more widespread.
If the belt is too loose it will end up whipping around inside the engine which will cause a variety of knock on effects and if the belt is too tight it will put a strain on the bearings of the cogs it's fitted to.
A tight belt will cause a whining noise to be emitted from the engine so if you hear this sound make sure to book a repair as soon as possible. You shouldn’t wait until this happens though, as the damage caused by a faulty cambelt will end up costing you even more money in repairs.
As you will see in the FAQ section and video above, the cost of a cambelt repair can vary depending on the vehicle and garage. The biggest cost associated with this job type will be the labour itself.
This is because the parts are based deep within the engine and getting to them takes time. The components themselves won’t cost you a huge amount as they are not complex so don’t be surprised to see labour costs making up the biggest part of the bill.
Even if your cambelt doesn’t completely break its important to keep an eye on the component as per the instructions provided by your cars manufacturer, if you leave it for too long, the belt could snap and cause catastrophic engine failure.
The cambelt will need replacing at some point, usually around the 30,000 – 50,000 mile mark but make sure to consult the vehicles owner’s manual to double check as it may vary depending on the vehicle.
