CAMSHAFT

There are four types of camshaft:

  • The valve camshaft (control of the suction and exhaust valves)
  • The sleeve camshaft (sliding-rotation sleeve which opens and closes the valves)
  • The piston camshaft (piston opens and closes the channel windows)
  • Camshaft controlled by rotating throttle (opens and closes intake windows)

In most cases the life of the camshaft belt amounts to 90,000 km or 5 years (each manufacturer has its own recommendations which are provided to the customers after the exchange) because during work it is exposed to pressure, change of temperature and friction. After covering specified distance or after specific time it is necessary to replace the camshaft belt. You should not wait until the last minute (especially when it comes to older cars). Destruction of the belt can cause a serious engine failure which occurs as a result of the collision of the pistons with the valves.

When replacing the belt our service recommends the replacement of the other associated components, such as rollers, idler roller, water pump (if they are situated under the camshaft), camshaft and crankshaft sealants.
