Timing Chains

Either a timing chain or a timing belt – sometimes referred to as a cambelt – is a vital component linking together two halves of an engine to ensure its correct operation. If either fails it is very likely to cause significant damage to an engine.

A timing belt has a predetermined life expectancy and its manufacturer will indicate that a replacement will fall due based on a time period or a mileage basis. This replacement process requires experienced technicians using specialist tools. Unfortunately, there is usually no warning of a timing belt failure until it is too late.

The predetermined life expectancy does not apply to a timing chain. However, there are a number of factors which can give rise to problems. A worn or stretched timing chain can often be identified by a rattle when starting the engine from cold. If you think you can hear a similar noise at this time it is advisable to get your engine inspected before a failure necessitates expensive repairs.
