What Is a Cambelt?
A cambelt or also know as timing belt it is an essential element on any cars engine. In a nutshell the cambelt is an internal part of the engine that make sure all the elements are running in sync. It controls the opening and closing of the valves to the cylinders in time to ensure correct combustion in the engine. Its primary role is to control the timing and sequence of the opening and closing. Therefore if the cambelt suddenly breaks or snaps this can cause devastating damage to your engine.
If the cambelt on your car does unexpectedly snap the valve’s stroke and piston’s stroke take up the same space in the cylinder, so the cambelt belt essentially keeps them from smashing into each other, since they do it at different times. Therefore when the cambelt snaps, they run into each other, causing bent valves, cylinder head or camshaft damage, and possibly piston and cylinder wall damage.
