When Should You Replace Your Vehicle’s Cambelt?

There isn’t any specific time period within which to replace your car’s cambelt. The timing typically depends on the model of your vehicle and how you’re driving the vehicle. However, you will need to replace the cambelt at least more than once during your vehicle’s lifespan.

Many manufacturers recommend doing a cambelt change after a specific time or distance. The distance for a cambelt change is typically between 40,000 and 100,000 miles, or it can be anytime after four years.

We recommend reading your vehicle handbook to see when your manufacturer recommends a cambelt change. It’s also crucial to choose a reliable repair service like the ones at In Town Automotive to ensure you don’t face any issues later.
