About Timing Cam Belt Kits
An integral part of the engine's timing system, the Jaguar 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 Jaguar 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 Jaguar 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.
- The most expensive car in Jaguar's history is the XJ220. It cost a rather intimidating £413,000 in 1991 and is also one of the fastest cars they've ever built, capable of getting up to 217mph.
- The first-ever XK120 rolled off the production line and was delivered immediately to Clark Gable, who had preordered it well in advance. The XK120 came with a removable windscreen and could hit a solid 120mph..
- Jaguar isn't a big name in F1, but they did have a go. They raced between 2000 and 2004 but didn't perform well enough to justify the costs. They managed a less than stellar ninth place in their final race.
- The 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the most gruelling and famous race events in the world, has been won by Jaguar an astonishing seven times. Their first victory was back in 1951.
- The 2014 Superbowl advert for Jaguar featured Brit actors Ben Kingsley and Mark Strong, with a terrified Tom Hiddlestone hanging out of a helicopter as it flew across London. Not many people know that the driver used for this advert was The Stig (Ben Collins).
