What can you look for?
The sole purpose of the cambelt is to coordinate the engine to keep its timing of combustion correct and stopping the valves at the bottom from hitting the pistons. When the cambelt is damaged or broken, the sequence and the motion of the engine is lost, the valves then hit the piston causing it to bend. Valve repairs are costly, approximately $1500 – $3500.
When purchasing a used vehicle, always look at the mileage of the vehicle and ask if the cambelt has been changed. If the owner cannot provide you with the service history – you are better of walking away. In any pre-purchase vehicle inspection from Kristol this is one of the most important things we note.
