About Timing Cam Belt Kits

An integral part of the engine's timing system, the Chevrolet timing cam belt, also referred to as a drive belt or serpentine belt, is powered by the crankshaft, connecting the crankshaft to the camshaft, and functions to drive various components that all work together to  enable the car to move.  The Chevrolet timing cam belt kit provides you with all you'll need to replace the timing cam belt on your vehicle. It is vehicle specific, designed exactly for the make and model of your car, offering perfect compatibility and a product that will perform well and last longer.

Situated in the engine compartment, the timing cam belt is a long piece of rubber which coils through a series of pulleys which contain bearings, usually operating with a spring mechanism. The pulleys function to enable the timing cam belt to smoothly spin around, allowing the belt to propel or drive various components in the engine compartment, such as the alternator, air pump and power steering pump.  The pulley mechanism allows the timing cam belt to run along the inside of the tensioner, which enables it to apply tension to the belt as it spins around its path of pulleys and generates the mechanism and power needed to drive the components it serves.  

The camshaft receives power from the crankshaft via the timing cam belt. The timing cam belt works in conjunction with the camshaft pulley to make sure the camshaft is rotating in sync with the crankshaft. As the camshaft rotates via the belt and pulley system, it opens and closes the intake and exhaust valves. The timing cam belt controls how fast the camshaft rotates and enables the smooth rotation of the cylindrical camshaft ensuring the right amount of air and fuel is allowed to enter the engine at exactly the right time in order for combustion to occur in the cylinders.

If the timing cam belt comes loose it can deviate from its position. A sure sign of a loose timing cam belt is a nasty screeching noise. A slipped timing cam belt will lead to extremes of temperature as the belt struggles, eventually leading to a damaged belt. A slipped timing cam belt can also affect the proper performance of the components powered by the belt. Often the cause of a slipped fan belt is that the spring inside the tensioner has become worn and is unable to apply the right amount of tension to the timing cam belt. The cam belt can crack and warp and eventually break, due to the high temperatures and friction it has to withstand. When replacing this part, choosing the Chevrolet timing cam belt kit will give you perfect compatibility with the make and model of your vehicle. It is a good idea to seek advice from your mechanic with regards to fitting this part as a well fitted and properly adjusted timing cam belt makes a big difference to the overall running of the vehicle and experience of the drive.

Chevrolet trivia

  • The Chevy is one of the most popular cars in the world, and Chevrolet took part in their 100th anniversary by embracing their popularity., They created online playlists of the hundreds of songs that feature Chevy cars, with tracks by Prince, Bon Jovi, Don Mclean, Elton John, and many, many more.
  • There have been some classic Chevrolet cars on the big screen. It's hard to forget the Tom Cruise feature Days of Thunder without thinking of the Chevrolet Lumina, but there are also Chevrolets in the classic American Graffiti. That film had a stunning 1958 Chevy Impala and a Chevy 210. Of course, the best Chevrolet cinematic appearance was clearly Michael Bay's Transformers, with Bumblebee being a '76 and a 2010 Camaro.
  • If anyone ever tells you that they own a 2006 Silverado Intimidator SS, there's a good chance that they're telling porky pies. This is considered to be the rarest of all Chevy trucks and was built to honour the memory of Dale Earnhardt. He died during the 2001 Daytona 500, and only 1,333 were ever sold to the general public.
  • The weirdest Chevrolet experiment was the Chevrolet Turbo Titan II in 1965. This was the same year as the first US spacewalk, and the car has a real space theme happening. Most bizarrely, it didn't have a steering wheel and instead had two large dials so that it looked more like a games console controller or DJ desk than a car.
  • The Camaro is one of the most recognised cars in the world, but it wasn't always called the Camaro. It was originally called The Panther, but Chevrolet wanted to go for a more family-friendly vibe.
