Our expert insights into timing belt replacement

What does a timing belt do?

It is a vital engine component with a key role to play in keeping your motor running smoothly. It ensures the top and bottom halves of your engine rotate precisely in time with each other.

Symptoms of a malfunctioning timing belt

Like most car parts, your timing belt will wear out eventually due to cracking, snapping or tearing. If a grinding or squeaking noise is being emitted from your engine, it could be a malfunctioning timing belt.

Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will replace your timing belt kit and water pump.

Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

What does a timing belt do?

The timing belt, or cambelt, is a vital engine component with a key role to play in keeping your motor running smoothly. It ensures the top and bottom halves of your engine rotate precisely in time with each other.

Essentially, this ribbed rubber belt with teeth synchronises the crankshaft and camshaft’s rotation. It controls the sequencing and timing of the opening and closing of the valves on the cylinders in your engine to provide the right combustion.

Camshafts, made up of the main journals, the lobes (or bulges) and the ends, control the valves in the cylinder head. A rocker head takes the spinning motion of an overhead camshaft and turns it into the movement that opens and closes the valves.

Timing chains essentially perform the same function as cambelts but may be slightly noisier. The chains generally last as long as the vehicle (and generally require less frequent replacing), although the plastic guides they run over may not.

Renault

Le Groupe Renault est une multinationale française de l'automobile, créée il y a plus de 120 ans, en 1899.

Quelle est la popularité de Renault en France ?

Cette marque française compte environ 1,4 million de véhicules en circulation en France aujourd'hui. Elle a connu un pic entre 2007 et 2008, avec plus de 2 millions de véhicules, mais n'a cessé de décliner depuis.

Des options à prix raisonnables pour les véhicules de milieu de gamme

Renault propose une large gamme de véhicules respectables.

Comme c'est le cas pour la plupart des constructeurs sur le marché actuel, la crème de la crème se trouve dans les modèles SUV. Les modèles RS, conçus pour une expérience de conduite beaucoup plus amusante, et les modèles électriques, qui occupent une place impressionnante sur un marché en croissance constante, se distinguent également.

Renault : un concurrent constant dans toutes les disciplines du sport automobile

Dans les années 1970, Renault a créé une division dédiée au sport automobile qui a remporté le titre de vainqueur des 24 heures du Mans en 1978, avec la Renault Alpine A442. Depuis, la société n'a cessé de concourir et de remporter des succès en rallye et en Formule 1.

Formule 1 de Renault

Renault a présenté sa première voiture de Formule 1 (et son équipe) à Silverstone en 1977 ; c'était la première voiture de ce type à inclure un moteur turbo. L'équipe a poursuivi ses activités jusqu'en 1986 et peu de temps après, en 1989, elle a commencé à fournir des moteurs à la célèbre Williams-Renault.

L'équipe Benetton a été rebaptisée Renault F1 en 2002, et l'équipe a remporté le championnat des constructeurs en 2005 et 2006 avec l'Espagnol Fernando Alonso au volant.

Plus récemment, Renault a fourni le moteur de l'équipe Red Bull Racing en 2010 et a repris la compétition en tant qu'équipe à part entière à partir de la saison 2016.

How often should a timing belt need replacing?

There’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach for how often to replace yours—a lot depends on your motor’s age and condition.

There’s also huge variation between manufacturers and different engines. So you might need a new belt every 3 to 5 years, or after 40,000 or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. Consult your car’s manual—most manufacturers’ recommendations are based on time passed or miles driven, depending on which elapses first.

However, we’d always suggest treating these recommendations as a maximum, and erring on the side of caution.

The law, vehicle regulations, and your MOT

The timing belt will not be examined at your car’s MOT, but the associated issues of running a car with a faulty timing belt can lead to severe engine damage, which can.

What happens when we replace your timing belt?

  • Our efficient and fully qualified mechanics will disassemble the parts of the engine to access the timing belt and proceed to examine the timing belt, the belt’s pulleys and tensioner.

  • Wherever required your timing belt will be replaced and you’ll be advised of any other connected or associated problems arising from its malfunction.

  • You will also be advised of any other parts that may need to be replaced for the best operation and health of your vehicle.

  • Once the timing belt has been replaced, our mechanics will test your car thoroughly to ensure the correct running of the new part and make any adjustments required for its premium operation.

What causes a timing belt to stop working correctly?

Like most car parts, your timing belt will wear out eventually due to cracking, snapping or tearing. Timing belts are also unpredictable, with few warning signs of damage. (Although starting issues and noise may offer clues.) Driving your car infrequently, oil leaks and temperature changes, among other factors, can all play their part.

Symptoms of a malfunctioning timing belt

You hear unusual noises coming from the engine

If a grinding or squeaking noise is being emitted from your engine, it could be a malfunctioning timing belt.

The car won’t start

If your timing belt has broken, this can cause problems with your engine that lead to the vehicle not starting.
