What Should you do if your Cambelt Breaks?
The cambelt is an important piece of equipment within your car engine. It will control opening and closing of valves to make sure the engine is working properly and to avoid combustion. You should think about getting a new cambelt approximately every 40,000-100,000 miles. The range is enormous, as it will very much depend on the model of your car and how well it is functioning in other ways.
If you cambelt does break, it will stop the engine. Do not attempt to turn the engine back on, as it will cause major problems. If you have broken down in the road, put on your hazard lights and make sure you get to a safe place. Your safety is much more important than your vehicle. You can then call a breakdown recovery service and have your car towed to a garage. Choose the garage you want to work on your car, and be prepared, as it won’t be a cheap repair.
