Has a worrying warning light or fault code appeared on your dashboard?
All modern cars contain on-board computers that monitor or control things like emissions levels, engine temperature and even windscreen wipers.
When things go wrong, these computers produce error codes which can only be read with
vehicle diagnostics equipment. You may see a warning light on your dashboard, but these only give a small part of the full picture.
Our diagnostic equipment checks for faults with engine management, electrical systems, lights, emissions, tyres and more to quickly identify any potentially costly problems.
Don't hesitate to get in touch and one of our friendly members of staff who will explain exactly what a diagnostic test will entail and how to fix it for you.
The timing belt, also known as the cambelt is responsible for synchronising the crankshaft and the camshaft. As the inlet valves open, the engine takes in air and expels toxic fumes at a specific point within the cycle. Travelling at a constant speed around pulleys, the timing belt moves in a regular, formulated motion. To ensure a fully-functioning cambelt, it must be maintained at the correct level of tension. The tension pulleys are responsible for maintaining the optimum tension level, which is something that should be checked regularly and replaced if you detect a fault. If the belt is too loose, there’s a chance it may flap about which could result in the premature opening of the engine valves. Alternatively, too tight and the cog bearings will endure excess strain. As well as the tension problems, cracks, shredding and a squealing sound are also signs that your timing belt needs replacing. Either one of these symptoms can cause the cambelt to snap without warning, so carrying out regular maintenance checks are vitally important. Finding the correct products for your cambelt replacement is essential, as our products vary depending on the make, model and age of your car. Please do get in touch and we can help you with a quote and to explain the process to you.
