The cam belt, also known as the timing belt, is a crucial component of a vehicle's engine. It controls the timing of the engine’s valves, allowing them to open and close at the right time in order to ensure the engine runs smoothly and efficiently.
Over time, the cam belt can become worn and stretched, which can cause it to slip or break. If this happens while the engine is running, it can cause serious damage to the engine, leading to costly repairs or even engine failure.
So, it’s important to change the cam belt at the recommended intervals in order to ensure the longevity and reliability of the engine. Neglecting to do so can result in significant/catastrophic engine failure and a huge expense down the road.
