Cam belt, timing belt, or cambelt – they’re variations on the name given to the thick rubber band with grooves, or teeth, that keep your engine working in harmony. Without it, various engine components wouldn't function together leaving your car pretty useless.
Not only does your cambelt keep all the valves and pistons in your car working together, it also keeps them apart in a very carefully timed manner. If the cambelt breaks, that timing would fail and all those valves could collide and cause a lot of very expensive damage.
All manufacturer's recommend your cambelt be changed at a certain lifetime, but a replacement is usually dependent on how old the car is, or how many miles it’s travelled. In real terms, it means replacing your cambelt after four or six years, or around the 60,000-mile mark for older vehicles, or 100,000 for newer models.
