Why it’s difficult to sell a van with a faulty cambelt
Well, if you don’t know the answer to this then it’s never happened to you! Faulty cambelts are a nightmare not because of the costs/problems of replacing the cambelt as such, but because of the consequential damage broken cambelts cause.
What are the possible consequential damages of a cambelt failure?
The damage a cambelt failure causes varies enormously from “minor” to the more usual “catastrophic”. The level of damage depends on many factors such as the speed the van was travelling at the time of failure, the make/model and luck!
Cambelt failure results in various types of engine damage, which can include:
- Bent valves
- Camshaft issues
- Cylinder head and wall problems
- and more!
All of the above can lead to many £000’s (in some cases) of repairs and can lead to a van being written off as beyond economical repair.
