The Importance of cambelts in Vans
Cambelts (also called timing belts and/or timing chains) are critical to van operation and synchronise the rotation of the crankshaft and camshaft together. Rotation is timed so that engine valves open and close at the precise times required.
Cambelts need periodic replacement to the manufacturers recommended guidelines, which is most typically between 50,000 – 80,000 miles. The cambelt is the most important maintenance item in a van, failure to replace a cambelt by its recommended replacement time is the most common reason for failure.

The Challenges of Selling a Van with a Broken Cambelt
It’s virtually impossible to sell a van with a broken cambelt except to a mechanic or for scrapping. The excessive costs which can be grouped under “engine damage” make the van unsaleable until the repairs are completed. With costs often being above the economic value of the car it’s often only viable to sell the van to broken van buyers like We Buy Broken Vans.
