The Cam Belt can also be known as the timing and it is essential that it is changed before it breaks. A breakage can cause catastrophic damage to an engine as the cambelt synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft so that the engine's valves open and close at the correct times.
Each vehicle manufacturer recommends different intervals for when a Cambelt should be changed, these could range from 4 - 6 Years or 40,000 - 100,000 Miles. You should refer to your vehicle handbook to confirm when yours should be changed.
