The Engine Management light and what it means if comes on
Illuminates when the ignition is switched on.
It should extinguish as soon as the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. You need to have this checked as soon as possible. Your vehicle will need to be connected to a diagnostics machine to check for engine faults.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine.
Have the vehicle checked by Deben Transport Repairs as soon as possible to avoid any long term damage being caused. We use the latest Diagnostic Equipment to check faults.
We can carry out any diagnostic checks or repairs that may be required, whether it is just bulbs that need replacing or the engine is running ‘lumpy’ speak to us at Deben Transport Repairs
Deben Transport Repairs can replace your cambelt
What is a CamBelt?
A timing belt, timing chain or cambelt is a part of an internal combustion engine that synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft so that the engine's valves open and close at the correct times during each cylinder's intake and exhaust strokes. It is also critical in preventing the piston from striking the valves. A cambelt is usually a toothed belt with teeth on the inside surface. A Cambelt is also often known a s a timing belt.
It is vital that a Cambelt is changed before it breaks as this can cause catastrophic damage to an engine.
When should I change my Cambelt?
There is no hard and fast rule for this and each vehicle manufacturer recommends different intervals which could range from 40,000 - 100,000 Miles or 4 - 6 years. You should refer to your vehicle handbook for this. If you are unsure call in or contact us at Deben Transport Repairs and we are more than happy to advise you.
