To work properly a cam belt needs to be under certain tension that is controlled by acam belt tensioner. Some older cars have an adjustable cam belt tensioner that must be re-adjusted if the cam belt gets loose. Newer cars have an automatic cam belt tensioner that doesn’t need any adjustment. If the cam belt gets loose, it may skip a tooth and the proper timing will be lost.
When a cam belt is replaced, it’s very important to our mobile mechanics to set the timing properly. Before a newcam belt is installed, the crankshaft, the camshaft and other components synchronized with a crankshaft must be aligned by our professional mobile mechanics in a certain way. A repair manual has proper instructions and a diagram with timing marks. Improperly set timing will cause a variety of problems such as lack of power, Check Engine light, vibration, misfiring, etc.
When you suspect your timing belt needs to be checked, please don’t risk it, our Advanced Mobile Mechanics can come to wherever you are in Canberra to check the cam belt for you or even can do a new replacement.
The timing belt must be replaced at recommended by the manufacturer intervals, usually from 60,000 km to 180,000 km depending on models. Honda also specifies the time interval (every 84 months). You can find the recommended replacement interval in your owner’s manual or in a separate maintenance booklet. In addition, the timing belt must be replaced if it has any damage like cracks, cuts, or if it is soaked in oil leaking from the engine, or if it shows any signs of excessive wear.
Due to its complexity, timing belt replacement is the most technical and demanding work that can be done at home by non-mechanics.
If you want to replace the timing belt of your car yourself with the best quality products and for an affordable price call us. Our professional mobile mechanics have the right tools to get your job done quickly and correctly.
If not replaced in time, the timing belt can break. If you are approaching the mileage for a timing belt change, or if you bought a used car and you don’t know if the timing belt has been replaced, it’s a good idea to have our mobile mechanics to inspect the timing belt condition. The timing belt is protected by timing belt covers. To inspect the timing belt condition, our mobile mechanics have to remove one of the covers in order to access it.
